Go nuts for this smoothie – and reap the benefits with glowing, gorgeous skin, strong nails and beautiful hair.
The hero ingredient in this recipe is macadamia nuts, which are a great snack for when you’re on the run.
They are high in protein and monounsaturated fats.
The former is great for cell growth.
What I mean by that, is nuts are a great thing to add into your diet if you want to look good.
They also taste super yummy.
You just might have to hide them if you have a household like mine (my eldest son can scoff an entire bag of macadamia nuts in one sitting).
Salted Macadamia and Vanilla Smoothie
1 frozen banana
½ cup each oat milk and coconut milk
3 dates (soak these in hot water for 10 minutes prior if not fresh)
1 generous tablespoon macadamia and vanilla nut butter*
1 tablespoon tahini
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Place the ingredients in a blender and mix.
Pour into a cup and enjoy!
Note: We put bee pollen on top for styling, but this is optional, it’s delicious with or without the topping.
*Forty Thieves one is amazing… otherwise you can make your own by soaking a cup of raw macadamia nuts overnight in water and then blend them the next day – use 1 tablespoon from this for the recipe and use the rest to put on toast. Or if you own a powerful blender, you can blitz them raw, whole and unsoaked.
