Totally Nutty Smoothie Recipe

13 Apr

Since buying my Vitmaix nearly two years ago, I have become a major fan of the smoothie. I started out following the recipes that came with the Vitamix but eventually I started to just toss things in and see what I got.

Today I wanted to share one of my favorite creations with you, I give you the Totally Nutty Smoothie!

Nutty Smoothie

What you will need:

1 cup almond or cashew milk

1 TBSP chia seeds

2 TBSP powdered peanut butter

1/2 banana

60 grams spinach

10 grams raw almonds

How you do it:

Put everything in your Vitamix (or Nutrabullet or blender) Be sure to put the chia seeds, almonds, and peanut butter in before the banana and spinach, that’ll keep it from flying around inside the container. Send everything for a spin until it’s smooth and creamy.

That’s all there is to it.

Other tidbits:

Your smoothie will be green but it will not taste green, I promise. Adding the spinach (or kale) will help boost it’s nutritional value big time. It’s plenty sweet for me but if you like things on the sweeter side, add some honey or agave nectar to sweeten things up a bit. About half a tablespoon should do it.

This smoothie, made with cashew milk, comes it at 273 calories, 14 grams of fat, 10 grams of fiber, 330 grams of sodium, and 11 grams of protein. I like to make this one to take as a meal while I’m at work.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.
