Sometimes you just feel like something a little decadent - but nourishing of course 😜

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
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!
Pecan & Banana Oat Smoothie
1 cup of pecan milk (see recipe above)
2 tbsp almond butter
1.5 tbsp raw cacao powder
1/4 cup gluten-free oats
pinch of vanilla powder
3-4 ice cubes

Blend all ingredients on high until well combined & enjoy!
