We all know that almonds are packed with nutrients and vitamins, and today, I want to share with you a super smoothie recipe that’s perfect for any time of the day. We’re also going to incorporate some coconut into this smoothie to take it up a notch. It’s a creamy, nutty, and has a thick consistency; you can even mistake this smoothie for a milkshake. This recipe will make enough for 2 servings for you and your loved one.
When I heard the word smoothie, my brain immediately goes to fruits. Almost every place I went that sells smoothies, always uses a combination of fruits, until I went to this one place near my office that sells a nutty smoothie. I was hooked and had been making my combination of nutty smoothie; one of them is this recipe that I want to share with you today.
The thick and grainy consistency of this smoothie is perfect when you add some honey; it will also add some sweetness to it. If you have some ripe mango just lying around, it will be a great addition to the smoothie. Just chop some and place it on top of it, take a spoonful of the smoothie with the mango, and enjoy it.
