Coconut Almond Smoothie

So, I’m going to admit to you all that our Christmas decorations are still up. It’s January 15th, and I haven’t taken one thing down. This has never happened. If any of you wants to come and help me out, I will pay you in cookies or smoothies. Whatever you want, you got it. Please start with the tree. K, thanks.

Coconut Almond Smoothie

I’ve been on quite a smoothie kick lately. Making smoothies is much more fun than taking down decorations. Most of the smoothies that I make are fruity smoothies, but sometimes I really crave a more dessert-like smoothie. Enter this coconut almond smoothie. It’s so creamy and dreamy!

If you are wanting a milkshake, this smoothie is a perfect and healthier alternative! It’s made with simple ingredients like coconut milk and almond butter. The best part about it? You can drink it for breakfast, as a post-workout snack, or dessert!

  1. Our Christmas tree stayed up late this year too – we took down everything else but I had no desire to spend time taking the actual tree down (mostly just taking the ornaments off – I hate that!) haha And this smoothie sounds awesome – I always just make fruit smoothies but now I am craving a more dessert-like one! Love the coconut in here!

  2. I just recently made a smoothie that used raw almonds as one of the main ingredients and it was so good! Can’t wait to try this one!

  3. This sounds so good. I am always making a green smoothie but should switch it up a bit more. This looks like it could be dessert. The best breakfast I think.
