Triple Almond Joy Smoothie (Makes two 16-ounce glasses)
Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t…
Children of the ‘70s, you are welcome for the earworm! I had the name for this smoothie in my head before I ever created the recipe. I was just craving something chocolatey, something creamy and more than a little nutty. Well, here you go! Enjoy and you just try to get the commercial song out of your head.
2 cups unsweetened coconut milk (the kind in a carton, not a can) ¼ cup quick-cooking oats 1 tablespoon almond butter ½ teaspoon almond extract 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 1 banana, ideally frozen 1 - 2 dates, pitted or 1 - 2 tablespoons maple syrup 2 tablespoons almonds 1 cup ice
Combine everything in the blender and blend, baby, blend!
