Hi everyone! This week I have two AWESOME guest bloggers giving us delicious smoothie recipes. The first recipe this week is from Fifi aka The Divine Hostess . You guys might remember her from our Vegan Burgers an Fries collaboration on Youtube last year and my weekend visit with her vlog video! She came up with this DELICIOUS salted caramel smoothie recipe and I was lucky enough to be in LA when she was filming it and got to see her in action! Try it out for yourself 🙂
August isn’t even over yet, but I can already feel summer ramping down. Soon there will be less time bumming around on the beach, and more time spent rushing to do important business, going back to school and just getting back into the groove of things. With an on-the-go lifestyle, it is easy to put healthy eating on the back-burner. This is why smoothies are so great! They are nutritious, yummy, and save you from standing in that long Starbucks line in the morning before work or school. One of the most delicious flavors at Starbucks is salted caramel– the bold sea salt and the sweet home flavor of caramel are just a match made in heaven!
My salted caramel smoothie has all the delicious flavor, but without refined sugar and get this– no animal products. This makes it great for lactose intolerant people and ensures the smoothie can last a couple hours without spoiling!
You will need:
- 2 frozen bananas
- 12 ounces (1.5 cups) of almond milk (unsweetened)
- 6-8 dates
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 cup coconut shreds
- 1 tsp coconut oil
If you do not have a powerful blender, soak the dates in a 1/4 cup of warm water for at least 2 hours before blending. Add all contents into blender and blend until smooth. Top the smoothie with additional sea salt for extra flare. Enjoy!
