Apricot Almond Butter Smoothie


Apricots are in season now and I just bought a whole bunch at Trader Joe's. I love munching on them as is but this morning I made a smoothie; sometimes recipes just pop into my head and this one did just that last night. It came to me when I came back from a night out with my BFF, it was a real NYC evening, we walked from the West Village all the way uptown, through the beautiful, lit up streets of this magnificent city. 

We stopped at my yoga studio and I showed my friend some poses, we chatted about being business owners, we listened to music and just enjoyed being in the greatest city ever (and the best yoga studio!) Then we walked some more and stopped for a falafel sandwich at Pitopia...like yum! Who doesn't love falafel?? Then finally we got home and I just thought of this recipe. I'm leaving to go home for a week and I wanted to use my apricots in a recipe with my leftover oat milk. So here I am! This is yummy and refreshing and I added a spice that you wouldn't think would go great in this recipe; however it worked well!

           


Recipe:

2 apricots (they can be frozen)
8 oz of non dairy milk (I used oat, coconut would make it super creamy)
2 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of turmeric
2 tbsp of almond butter
A few ice cubes (if the apricots aren't frozen)

Blend everything in your high speed blender until everything is smooth. Serve in your favorite glass or mason jar! Buy organic apricots if you can. To make it nut-free, use sunflower seed butter. Freeze the apricots to avoid using ice cubes. Add chia seeds for an extra boost of energy.

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!
