Almond Cup Smoothie GoodGirlGoneGreen #smoothie #almondmilk #realfoodNow, that I have mastered making almond butter and nut/seed butter cups in my high powered blender, I can’t stop creating different flavors and recipes in my kitchen. It has almost become an addiction.

One thing I enjoy daily is a nice refreshing smoothie. They are chocked full of vitamins and minerals my body needs and craves regularly. Since I am on an almond butter kick, you can guess where this recipes is going. This is where almond cup smoothie comes into play! Smooth and creamy and refined sugar-free. It is seriously the perfect and most simple smoothie to make. Just throw everything in your bender and voila. That easy.

    Mmm … my mouth is seriously watering! I adore dates and the combination of almond & date flavors is making my head spin (in a good way). Thanks for sharing … I so want to try this recipe! :-)

      I love dates, too! I put them in everything! Let me know if you try it!

    Sound yummy. I tasted some Almond milk in Sams this weekend but I didn’t buy any. Now I want to go back. May I ask approx how many calories you think your recipe is for a serving?

    • Good Girl Gone Green February 28, 2012 at 12:39 am #

      No idea how many calories, but if I was going to guess probably 400. Again that is a big guess! :)

    You can’t really mess it up. I thought the same thing, but I just let my food processor do the work! Enjoy!

    I’ve been making almond milk the hard way, blending & straining, this looks like I fantastic alternative, thanks for sharing!

    • Good Girl Gone Green March 3, 2012 at 11:54 pm #

      I hate the straining part – so messy! And you pretty much loose all the protein and that’s why I eat almonds in the first place. Enjoy! :)

    I love dates and never thought of adding them to smoothies. Awesome.

      Let me know how you like it!

      • Tanya March 28, 2012 at 11:59 am #

        We loved it. I think I used a tad too much cocoa powder, and we had coconut water on hand so we used that. But I loved how the dates provided sweetness with no extra sugars. Mine was really dark brown, so I know I need to scale back on the cocoa next time. Really good though and filling:-). T

        • Good Girl Gone Green March 28, 2012 at 12:09 pm #

          Awesome. Glad you liked it! I find that the actual almond cups I made are so much better!

    Almond milk is very yummy! Try it!
