Let’s start by featuring a smoothie recipe, shall we? I have a bag of walnuts sitting prettily in our pantry. Hmmm… surely, I can make that into a smoothie, right?
And then, in the Mercury Drug Store near our place, there’s these line of ice cream flavors I’ve been meaning to try. It’s Nestle’s Zero % Fat, No Sugar Added Ice Cream. They have it in Vanilla Flavor (there are still more) and I definitely want to add this to my smoothie recipe. Vanilla Walnut Smoothie sounds good but having banana’s in it will make it even better. I know, trust me.
We start by grinding the walnuts until they are almost in powder form in a blender.
Add in milk, I used low fat for this one.
Then I added the ice cream and the bananas. Use very ripe bananas for a more deliciously fruity smoothie. Blend until smooth.
Oh before I forget, make sure your ingredients are cold before blending, okay?
