Almond Banana Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana, chilled
  • 1 cup water
  • Big spoonful of almond butter
  • 1/2 c almond milk (or more water)
  • dash of cinnamon
  • handful of ice

Mix all ingredients until well blended.  So creamy and tastes especially good after a workout.

Lemon Coconut Almond Drops

I am making almond milk every few days and am on the lookout for ways to use the leftover almond pulp. I came up with this one last week:

  • 1 c almond pulp, dehydrated
  • 1 c pitted dates
  • 1/2 c shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • juice of 1 lemon

Mix all ingredients in a food processor until well combined. Shape into balls or bars and chill.

I also rolled a few in some soaked/dehydrated buckwheat to add a little crunch.

I wrap each one individually and store in the fridge for quick snacks and often take them with me when we are heading out to run errands.
