I drink this a lot and I tell you I’m using frozen blueberries and some acai berries, that’s our main flavor and we’re using lots of other things. I’m going to show you in a minute, but it is just creamy and decadent and delicious.
So I’m rockin Robin and I’m going to show you how to make it right after this, so before we get into the recipe go ahead and hit that subscribe button and the notification bell next to it and that way you’ll be notified. Every week with my new articles come out and we’re always cooking up something delicious and healthy. So here’s what we need for our power smoothie. I have a packet of a cyi puree, which I got it Trader Joe’s.
We need some organic frozen blueberries. I got those at Costco a couple of bananas, I peel them and then toss them in the freezer and freeze them make sure smoothie, nice and creamy. I have some raw pumpkin seeds, raw walnuts. I have some hemp hearts date paste or you can use just regular hold dates. If you have a high speed blender, I have a piece of avocado I’m going to toss in there. It makes this for some good fats.
I have coconut milk with its full fat as well, and I have some almond beverage here that is unsweetened alright, so with the acai packet you’re going to want to hurry up and use this before it melts break it up into pieces because it just makes it Easier for the blender, so I take it out hon to my back porch and I just crack it over the concrete back there and it breaks it up into nice pieces. So you want to just you can see it just kind of breaks up into some pieces, and it’s alright, so I saw is really good for you.
It’s got a lot of antioxidants, a little bit messy here, lots of fiber it just lots of good nutrition and I’m using the of course. The frozen organic blueberries toss. Those in mexico’s my frozen bananas you can put in as much as you want. They make the smoothie nice and creamy now feel free to improvise. Here you can add whatever you want to add to this thing, it’s really simple, but this combination of things works really.
Well, I take a small handful of a saw, hump concedes, and I just I just throw in a few. You can certainly use other nuts. All these would work too. I just like the walnuts just throw in a little handful of that. You get a lot a lot of protein. In this hand, parts I’ve got serving of that which is like 3 tablespoons. Now here’s the date paste. I have just a little bit left on it to make some more I’m just about out.
I have a article that I’ll show you how to make this I’ll leave the link in the description of the article click down there, where it says, show more. So I just throw in a you know: just I’m going to put all this in actually and you can vary it now. If you don’t want to do the date paste, you can throw in some dates. I got mine from Costco and they’re pitted and you can just if you have a high speed blender, you can just toss the whole thing in there and it will.
You know pulverize it. Now. I have some leftover avocado here and I’m going to toss that in for the good fats, and this also makes your smoothie super creamy. Here’s my I have some leftover coconut milk. This is full fat and then the almond milk is just to get the right consistency. So I’m guessing here I put in maybe a third of a cup of the coconut milk, and I’m just going to pour some of this in what I think you need, and it all depends on how frozen all of your fruit was too and then we’ll place.
It on to our blender blend away all right. I want you to have a look at this thick and creamy so happen to have one of these little straw things instead of using paper straws this one’s just kind of you see how that worked. Just kind of came together and it’s reusable of course, and washable, and all of that, and so I’m going to stick it in there and take a taste man that is one delicious smoothie.
It is creamy and just decadent I mean it just satisfies it. Tastes like a milkshake, but it’s got a lot of nutrition and you can cut back on the sugar even more by leaving the dates or the date paste out and just go solely with the blueberry sweetness and the banana and you’re good. So that’s up to you and feel free to mix and match and add things to this and do whatever you want. I stick with the acai and the blueberry is my base flavor.
But what would go really good with this cocoa powder right get some really good. Cocoa powder put in a tablespoon and now you’ve really enhance the flavor of the acai because it sort of tastes like that anyway. So thanks so much for reading, share the article and leave me a comment. I always love to hear from you. So we’ll see you next time,
