This gorgeously light and delicate smoothie was created on a beautiful Spring morning and I couldn’t resist adding a photo of these striking red tulips in amongst the forget-me-nots – the smoothie looks a bit peely-wally by comparison (Scots: look it up! One for you Scribbleartie 😉)
Have you ever had bananas and peanut butter? If so, you’ll love this. It has home-made Sweet Apricot Kernel butter in it, but you can substitute it if you wish. I’d just read a Raw Chocolate Company tweet about their special offer on Sweet Apricot Kernels and I remembered we still had a bag in the cupboard, so we put them together et voilà!
Sweet Apricot Kernels are like small delicate almonds and can be used in the same way. You can make Sweet Apricot Kernel Butter and milk as you would with almonds.
B vitamins, healthy fats, protein and electrolytes in a glass. Sweet and simple, so what are you waiting for?
All ingredients are organic, vegan and gluten-free.
1 Small Ripe Banana
Handful of Sweet Apricot Kernels*
1 Tbsp Hemp Seeds*
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds*
1 Tbsp Raw Unsweetened Sweet Apricot Kernel Butter or Peanut Butter
1 Heaped Tbsp Gluten-Free Oats
1 Glass Unsweetened Coconut Water
Blend and relax.
This recipe is for Bernadette over at https://haddonmusings.com/ she hadn’t heard of sweet apricot kernels until she read my recipe for Oh-So-Choolatey Hemp Seed Coins – there are some more recipes which have them among their ingredients here.
