I’m not generally a smoothie fan. And DEFINITELY not a vegetable smoothie fan. Green juice is not for me.
But I get rather weary in the afternoon on this diet when I don’t have time to make something and so a smoothie would be a quick pick-me-up. Found this recipe here, and I will tweek it till I like it!
Almond (Coconut) Smoothie
- 2-3 tbs. almond butter
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon (I’ll probably replace with coconut)
- 1-2 tbs – honey (I’ll use stevia or xylitol) to taste
- 1.5 tbs wheat germ (I’ll use oat bran)
- 2-3 cups almond milk
- 1/4 tsp – vanilla extract
Figure I could also add probiotic yoghurt and/or unsweetened desiccated coconut. I’m not crazy about cinnamon so that may go too. Anyhow – I’ll report back on taste when I’ve tried it. Any smoothie ideas would be much appreciated….
