This is indeed a flavor combo to die for… from Lindsay at loveandoliveoil.com. Almond milk, almond butter – I’ve come to consider these almost essential for the most excellent of smoothies.
But this one also works great with peanut butter – you’d be surprised at how good this version is – with peanut butter instead of almond butter. A bit richer though, so you may want to reduce the quantity. But blueberries and peanut butter are a surprisingly delicious combination.
Or maybe I should have known… Of course! it’s much the same concept as a peanut butter and jelly, but drinkable!
Here’s Lindsay suggesting another variation – adding cocoa powder…
While I opted to leave out the cocoa powder in my version, you could most certainly add a few teaspoons for something extra special.
But it doesn’t really need it, the blueberries and almond butter alone make for a decadent drink that’s practically a milkshake, rich and creamy and with just the perfect amount of sweetness from the dates.
