Pecan & Banana Oat Smoothie

Sometimes you just feel like something a little decadent - but nourishing of course ๐Ÿ˜œ

Pin me ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿฝto save me for later!

I whipped up this smoothie to satisfy a craving I was having the other morning but don't let any of that fool you, this smoothie is still loaded with all sorts of goodness.

I started with a pecan milk base:

Freshly Blended Pecan Milk

1 cup raw pecans, soaked 4-6 hours

4 cups filtered water

1 tbsp coconut oil

2 tsp tocotrienol powder

1/4 tsp cinnamon

pinch of sea salt

Directions

Soak pecans 4-6 hours or overnight. Drain and rinse.

Add to a high-speed blender pecans & water. Blend on high for 30 - 60 seconds.

Pour mixture through strainer or nut milk bag and allow milk to drain into a bowl.

Rinse your blender thoroughly and return the milk to it along with the coconut oil, tocotrienol powder, cinnamon and sea salt. Blend for 30 seconds.

Store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days and enjoy:)

Now, back to that delicious smoothie!
