I haven’t posted a smoothie recipe in ages and that’s for a couple reasons, 1. No new inspiration was coming my way and 2. I had picked up a love affair with coffee and toast in the mornings. But today, I bring you something new (to me at least) and it’s so yummy that I told my husband, “This will be our morning smoothie, no more experiments, this is the mother of all smoothies”.
1 1/2 cup unsweetened Almond Milk
1 pitted date (I used Medjool)
1 organic pear cored (I left skin on but feel free to peel)
1 scoop Vega (Vanilla flavor – or any plant based non soy protein powder of your choice – brown rice, hemp, chia are good options)
2 ice cubes
Blend and enjoy!
P.S. Perhaps you noticed my nifty stainless steel straw? I love them, so great to rinse and reuse again and again and again plus it saves me from the inevitable smoothie mustache. I received these in my stocking but you can find them here on sale.
P.P.S If anyone is reading this and not eschewing bananas at the moment AND in freezing temps, this smoothie looked really fun.
