Healthy Elvis Smoothie

 

My husband and I went to Duluth for our anniversary last year and went to this delicious diner. They had this shake that was so delicious, that I just had to make it at home. Their recipe had yogurt and honey in it, which they subbed out for me, and I also changed in my recipe.

This recipe is more of a dessert smoothie; however, you can lighten it up by using unsweetened almond milk in place of the coconut milk, or by thinning it out with almond milk.

INGREDIENTS

– 1 can light coconut milk (4oomL)
– 1 tablespoon chia seeds
– 3 tablespoons natural peanut butter

I'm a plant-based distance runner and mother of two young girls. I enjoy making healthy recipes and experimenting with food. I also love to garden, so you will see many seasonal recipes that use what is currently growing in my backyard. I have a HBSc. in Nutrition and a Doctorate in Education and this background provides me with the skills necessary to pursue my passion - educating others on healthy eating. I don't count calories, so you won't find any nutritional information in my recipes. However, I strive to make each recipe healthy enough to fuel you and your family through the day.
