Snickers Bar

An incredible dessert-like smoothie that tastes reminiscent of a snicker's bar. One of our all time favorite smoothie recipes.

This recipe is also great because you learn how to make homemade almond milk in the process of creating this recipe. Try a sip of it when you're on step #5 to taste what un-sieved homemade almond milk is like! Don't stop there, though, this recipe turns out amazing.

Before making this one, be sure to soak your almonds in water overnight for an extra smooth and creamy texture.

We like using raw cacao in place of the cocoa powder, but we understand it's not the easiest thing to find. Use what you can get!

Directions

  1. Soak the almonds in a bowl of water overnight or up to 2 days.
  2. Drain and rinse the almonds. (It's important not to use the water that the almonds have been soaking in, because it contains phytic acid, which inhibits the body's ability to absorb nutrients.)
  3. Combine the almonds and water in blender.
  4. Blend on high for 2 minutes.
  5. Congratulate yourself, because you just made home-made almond milk. (If you were to strain it with a nut bag or cheese cloth, it would be silky smooth. It's not necessary for this recipe, though, we want the almond fiber.)
  6. Make sure the dates are de-pitted, then combine the rest of the ingredients in the blender and blend on high for another minute or until smooth.
