Nutty Grain Copycat Smoothie

Standard
Nutty Grain Copycat Smoothie

Ever have the Nutty Super Grain at your local smoothie store?  I have come up with my own gluten free, dairy free healthy version which turned out awesome.  I had to share my creation.  My husband is so in love with this and it sure saves us a whole lot of money.

1 cup sweetened almond milk (I love the Califia Farms brand)

1 frozen banana

1 tablespoon cacao (if you like dark chocolate, you could add a few dark chocolate chips as well)

1 to 2 tablespoons local pure honey

2 tablespoons gluten free brown rice protein powder

2 tablespoons any nut butter of your choice (I like using my homemade almond butter, my husband’s favorite is peanut butter)

1/4 cup fresh apple juice (I prefer Fuji apples)

2 tablespoons freshly ground flax seed

1 to 1 1/2 cups crushed ice

I add all ingredients except honey & ice in a Nutri-Bullet  and mix.
I then add the honey so it won’t stick to the side & the ice until it’s at the consistency of your liking.

I have added a pinch of Himalayan salt when using all natural nut butters that don’t have salt already added.
