{Greek Yogurt Pineapple Nut Smoothie} - HLTT4

I have been on an almond kick lately. Why? Besides their obvious nutritional awesomeness (healthy fat, high protein), the main reason is because I bought the most gargantuan bag of Blue Diamond Natural almonds at Walmart last week! It is literally 2 pounds of oven-roasted sea salt almonds. I've been munching on them for snacks, crushing them up with avocados into a paste (did you see yesterday's Avocado & Corn Bites?!), and now blending them up into a smoothie.  Dear Hubby originally scoffed at them, but now can't keep his hands out of the bag...they're that good!

Introducing this week's Healthy Living Thirsty Thursday:

{Greek Yogurt Pineapple Nut Smoothie}

High in protein, Vitamins C & E, manganese, potassium and fiber, this smoothie delivers a heavy nutritional punch.  It features frozen pineapple, Pineapple Greek Yogurt, coconut water, kiwis, almonds, and agave nectar.

This tastes like vacation in a cup!

Each week I've been asking for your input on what you'd like to see in the following week's juice or smoothie.  I love having you participate and help decide what I'll create next!  Bethany and Rebecca both suggested pineapple last week... you ask, I create.

The flecks in the smoothie are the seeds from the kiwi fruits and small bits of almond.  This was even good as leftovers the following morning, as it wasn't ice-based...a major win in my book!

Questions:

  • What's your favorite nut to cook with?
  • What would you like to see in next week's juice or smoothie recipe?
