I really really like this smoothie. It’s a bit unconventional, adding nuts and wheat germ into the equation. The added protein makes it a really good way to have energy for the rest of your day. Smoothies are really cool that way. You can literally throw any kind of nut, a whole cinnamon stick, different spices, fruits, yogurts and a load of other ingredients into it.
A lot of people think that smoothies have to be boring and there are no ways to make them extra special, and to those people I say: TRY THIS SMOOTHIE!
Makes 1 serving
1/2 banana, cut into chunks
3 medium frozen strawberries, thawed
1 cup almond milk (or soy, or non-fat)
1/8 cup wheat germ
1/8 cup almonds, roughly chopped (measure out the whole almond then chop them)
1 tbsp honey
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup ice
1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on high until smooth and everything is incorporated.
