Mmm who doesn’t love a yummy Bakewell tart?!
The combination of cherries and almonds in this recipe are as close as I’m going to get to the real thing in the foreseeable future (need to get my healthy act together again after ‘birthday week’), but that’s not too unfortunate since this is a really tasty and filling smoothie.
I’ve written about the health benefits of almonds before (all-round fab nut providing great nutrients for skin and overall health) but did you know that cherries are packed with antioxidants? They’re also high in potassium which is brilliant for heart health.
I used the Harvest Morn linseed which is a milled linseed with sesame, blueberries and raspberries but a plain linseed would work just fine for this recipe.
Pum’s ‘Bakewell’ Cherry Almond Smoothie
- 1 cup frozen cherries
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds
- 1 tbsp. almond butter
- 1 tbsp. linseed
- 1 tbsp. ground almonds
- 1 cup water
- Combined all ingredients in a blender and whizzed up until smooth.
A good tip for this one is to drink immediately for a smoothie or leave for 5-10 mins in the fridge to have as a smoothie bowl as the chia seeds and linseed will thicken quite quickly.
I absolutely love the flavours in this smoothie, so delicious. I hope you enjoy.
