I have to share this smoothie! We have made this smoothie every morning this week before school or work and I just made it again for myself this afternoon. We are a little addicted.
The original recipe comes from Wanigan Organic Fruits and Vegetables in Brampton, Ontario. Last weekend, I had my husband make a stop there for some fruits and veggies before his trek home. This store has the best variety and the most gorgeous looking produce you will ever see! On the back of his receipt, we found this smoothie recipe. I made one little substitution and one wee addition. I replaced the teaspoon of vanilla extract with a 1/2 scoop of Vanilla SunWarrior Protein Powder and added some grated nutmeg. So, chai-like!
PEAR AND ALMOND SMOOTHIE
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 chopped pear
- 1 date, pitted
- 2 tablespoons almond butter (I used a raw almond butter)
- 1/2 scoop of Vanilla SunWarrior Protein Powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- bit of grated nutmeg or dash of ground nutmeg
Combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth. I enjoyed my last glass with a couple of ice cubes on my deck. 🙂
