Macadamia Nut Smoothie

If you have tasted Macadamia nuts before you already know that they have a creamy, buttery taste and a very light texture. True, they do have a deserved reputation for being high in fat but most of that fat is monounsaturated or “good”. On the plus side of the nutritional ledger, a Macadamia nut has -0- cholesterol. So, overall, there is no real reason not to enjoy this easily made Macadamia nut smoothie.

Note: some lower powered blenders won’t be able to completely blend the nuts and will leave a few chunks but don’t let that stop you from enjoying your creation!

In your favorite blender mix:

  • Handful Macadamia nuts (8-10)
  • 1 previously frozen banana (peel and slice before freezing)
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk (or coconut water if you prefer)
  • Half a cup shredded coconut
  • Half a pitted Avocado
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • (Optional) Sweetener of your choice
