This maybe my favourite smoothie creation to date – big call I know! A few simple ingredients which are packed full of nutrients and dairy free!
It is not a sweet smoothie. I do not think smoothies need to be packed full of fruit; remember fruit does still contain natural sugar. I have used strawberries here as they are high in antioxidants and a low in terms of natural sugar (you can read some of my other tips to make smoothies really healthy here).
The almond milk is one of my preferred recommendations for a dairy-free switch and adding the raw almonds to this smoothie just really boosts the good fat intake up. Kale is one of natures super-foods and I am always looking at add some good green stuff to everything – enough said! If you are looking for more information on the different dairy-free milk alternatives check out my new blog here.
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
10 raw almonds
1 handful of kale
1) Simply place everything in the NutriBullet and pulse!
2) Enjoy and go! 🙂
This makes exactly 1 portion of a large mason jar, just double or triple the amounts depending on how many smoothies fans are around!
P.S At my popular Sugar & Sleep Workshops I talk all about different types of sugar and do a smoothie demo! Keep watch on my Events page – the next one is in Auckland on the 23rd of February (all event details here).
