Nutty Fruit Smoothie

20 03 2014

After years of salivating over owning a Vitamix, I finally closed my eyes and handed over my credit card. One of the best kitchen purchases I’ve ever made, and one I know will pay for itself! But I digress…..this smoothie is deliciously fruity and packed with protein. By using a combination of water and nuts, you’re essentially creating your own nut milk. You could use almond milk instead, however.

The following makes 2 cups (adapted from Vitamix Whole Food Recipes):

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 2 Tbsp walnuts
  • 1 Tbsp almonds
  • 1/2 Tbsp agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup ice cubes

Place all ingredients in a blender, if using a Vitamix place in the order listed, and secure lid.

Blend for 1 minute on high, or until desired consistency is reached. Adjust ice for a thicker smoothie if needed.
