Maple syrup and walnuts, if you haven’t tried this combination before, now is your chance! It may taste like a dessert, but there is nothing stopping you enjoying this for breakfast, and we 100% recommend that you do.
Roasting the walnuts is optional, but if you have the time, it truly takes this smoothie to the next level.
375 mL unsweetened almond drink
35 g walnuts lightly roasted (save 1 Tbsp for garnish if desired!)
1 handful ice cubes
1 to 2 Tbsp maple syrup (depending on the ripeness of your banana)
1 scoop vanilla Vega Essentials
- Preheat your oven to 180° C/ 160° C fan/gas 4 and spread the walnuts out onto a small baking tray. Roast the walnuts for 5 to 10 minutes, until just fragrant. No need to wait for them to brown. Once you can smell them, remove from the oven and let them cool slightly.
- Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour into a tall glass and enjoy! If you really feel like treating yourself, roughly chop the one tablespoon of reserved walnuts and sprinkle on top with a pinch of cinnamon.
