Happy Monday! Who’s ready for a week of decadent, healthy and delicious smoothie recipes? To kick the week off I wanted to share my “Sweet Tooth” smoothie. Full of yummy protein and a touch of sweetness to fulfill all of your sweet tooth cravings without the extra calories! You can substitute just about any nut or seed butter in this recipe, but I tend to use sunflower butter for extra richness. I hope that you enjoy this delicious dessert in a glass as much as I do! Oh and as a added bonus…
Send in your original smoothie/juice recipes by Friday, January 20th 5:00 pm (PST) for a chance to win a brand-new Vitamix blender from our friends at Williams-Sonoma! Just include a photo, recipe and a little background on how you came up with the recipe and why you love it! Send all entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will announce the winner on 1/21/17.
“Sweet Tooth” Smoothie
4-5 Pitted dates
1 cup Almond milk (You can substitute as needed)
1/4 Cup Sunflower Butter
1 Frozen Banana (be sure to slice and freeze for easier blending)
1/4 tsp Turmeric
1/2- 1 cup ice (depends on desired consistency)
Simply place ingredients into blender and blend. If the consistency is to thick for you simply add more of your liquid ingredients and continue to blend to your liking! So easy and so delicious.
Quick TIP: I love to put frozen banana and other fruit for my smoothies in Glad Freezer Bags at the beginning of the week for easy and convenient smoothie prep.
Enjoy and good luck!
