salted caramel peanut butter smoothie (paleo, vegan).
this salted caramel peanut butter smoothie has been on serious repeat since i create this recipe. i am so obsessed! i could drink this smoothie every morning i swear!
made with simple, nourishing ingredients and the best flavor ever. i want to disclaim that the fats in nuts are absolutely healthy and don’t recommend replacing all nuts with powdered versions (which remove most of the fats), BUT i do love powdered peanut butter in some smoothies for the flavor and texture it gives! i’ve also added macadamia nuts to the recipe to make up for those missing fats, and they also provide some good fiber and delicious flavor!
this smoothie is packed with plant-powered ingredients. once you take a sip you will be just as addicted- i promise. the salty and sweet combo of this smoothie is just too good.
you can’t even taste the cauliflower in this! i promise. it thickens up the smoothie and adds extra vitamins. however, if you choose to leave it out you will definitely need some ice as none of the other ingredients are frozen!
this smoothie is soo silky smooth- it has the best texture.
1/2-1 cup of almond milk
2 dates, pitted
1 handful frozen cauliflower florets
2 tbsp powdered peanut butter
2 tbsp macadamia nuts
1 tbsp ground flax seed
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1 serving of protein powder or collagen (I like unflavored because i don’t like the taste of the sweeteners, but vanilla will work here)
dash of vanilla
dash of cinnamon
sea salt, to taste
blend all ingredients until super smooth. taste and add more sea salt if desired.
