Some days I wake up and find myself in the mood for something less fruity and much more decadent. When that happens I reach for the blender and whip up this coconut milk smoothie! It’s smooth, nutty flavor is delectable and it’s also loaded with healthy protein so I stay full until lunchtime.
If you’re in the mood for something chocolaty, I suggest substituting the coconut milk for chocolate almond milk. But then you may need to call it dessert 😉
Coconut Almond Smoothie
- 1 cup coconut milk (refrigerated)
- 3 tbls almond butter
- 3 dates, stones removed
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup ice cubes
- pinch of cinnamon
Add the coconut milk and almond butter to your blender. Blend until smooth, approximately 30 seconds on low.
Add the dates and vanilla, blend for 30 more seconds on medium.
Test the consistency and add ice cubes as needed.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy!
