This Cool Almond Mint Smoothie is a great way to rehydrate your body after a good night’s sleep. Refreshingly minty, and packed full of healthy fats and protein, it’s the perfect smoothie to accompany your breakfast or to take on the go. This cold, creamy smoothie is just as filling as it is tasty. In the summer months, you can also use it as a wonderful after dinner treat. Just add a sprig of fresh mint, and serve!
Nut milks and nut butters are both on the ‘maybe’ list of foods to eat. That means you should eat them in relatively small amounts. For example, if you drink a glass of this smoothie in the morning then you should probably avoid nut milks and nut butters for the rest of the day.
Using almond milk ice cubes will give your smoothie more flavor than using plain ice cubes. Simply freeze almond milk in an ice cube tray, then store in your freezer in a covered container until ready to use. Adding more almond milk ice cubes will make your smoothie extra thick and icy. Look for a good organic brand of almond milk, or make your own at home!
