Are-You-Nuts-Smoothie

It’s smoothie-time again! Easy to make and you can easily take it with you when you’re in a hurry. Just poor it in a mason jar or other cup-with-lid and you’re good to go! Today I’ll share a smoothie recipe with you that’s nutty, creamy and hearty!

In this smoothie I used nuts (walnuts and pecans), a spoonful of almondbutter and a heaping spoon of oats, this makes this to a savory breakfast smoothie that gives you enough energy for the entire morning! The nuts contain necessary and healthy fats. Oats are naturally glutenfree, but nowadays they might be a little contaminated with traces of gluten, so if you are glutenintolerant it’s best not to use them or to buy real glutenfree oats. If you’re not intolerant to gluten, you can enjoy the oats! They give long lasting energy. Because they are high in fibers you’ll feel saturated for a long time! The carbs in the oats are absorbed slowly by your body, so they will not peek your bloodsugar too much.

 Are-You-Nuts-Smoothie

  • About 6-8 nuts (is used half walnuts, half pecans and soaked them in fresh water the night before)
  • 1 Banana
  • 2 tsp of almondbutter
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (you can replace it wih agave or, a non-vegan option, with (raw) honey)
  • 1 heaping tbsp of oats
  • 200 ml milk (I used almondmilk, but you can replace it by any other milk you like)
  • optional: pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg or vanilla for extra flavour!

Soak the nuts in fresh water the night before. Drain and rinse the nuts the next morning en put into a mixing cup together with all the other ingredients. Take your handmixer and blend it all into a creamy smoothie!

Sip slowly, enjoy and have a great start of your day! ♥
