So I’ve had this almond milk sitting in the cupboard for a while now – and I’ve been telling myself to USE THE STUFF before 2019 (when it expires haha). I love the thought of almond milk, you know – only being 30 calories a cup (asa posed to the hefty 150 of regular full cream milk). The problem is, back when I was still doing the keto diet I was trying my best to drink the stuff instead of milk in my coffee. I never got used to that!
The other day I decided it’s time to add the stuff to a smoothie – because I firmly believe smoothies are magical concoctions that can make anything bad (that’s super healthy) taste good 🙂
And I wasn’t surprised that my theory was once again SPOT ON for this almond milk protein smoothie. Always add a banana and vanilla protein powder and you’ve got GOLD, son! I love my fat melting green protein smoothie just as much (no milk, only water!!).
Anyway – back to my almond protein smoothie 🙂
If you don’t like peanut butter we’ve got a problem! It’s a very dominant flavour, and I’ve found that if you like peanut butter then you LOVE it…otherwise you hate it. Shame.
If you LOVE it – you’re going to love this smoothie 🙂 I used to make my own almond milk (suuuuuper easy oh my word!) – but here I just used long life unsweetened almond milk because I had some in the cupboard. But of course – homemade is always best 🙂 Plus you can make almond meal from the leftovers!
Now on to the complicated recipe… (naaaaat) 😛
