As the self-proclaimed Smoothie Queen, it is my hobby/privilege/mission in life to create new concoctions to share with you.
My latest creation was inspired from the mound of nut butter packets that I have (or had) in my pantry from the awesome people at Artisana.
I carefully selected the walnut butter packet and giddily went to work on my new creation!
By the way, walnut butter is awesome! This was the first time that I’ve ever tried it, and I instantly fell in love.
The “E” stands for everything I feel about this smoothie: energized, excited, enthusiastic!
Oh yeah, it stands for “Erin” too.
Vanilla Walnut Smoothie
Ingredients (for 1 serving)
1/2 frozen banana
3 ice cubes
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tablespoon walnut butter (any nut butter would probably work)
Stevia (or sweetener of choice)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1 handful of spinach
1 handful of kale (optional)
Dash of cinnamon (optional)
Toss everything in a mixer and blend until smooth!
I’m pretty sure that I say this every time, but this is one of my new favorite smoothies. It was gone in sixty seconds flat!
Check out some of my other smoothies on my recipes page. I have an addiction!
