We’ve been trying out different kinds of nut drinks around here.
We’re big on almond milk…and coconut water. So when we had a chance to try out macadamia nut milk, we were all over it. Which is good, because macadamia nut milk is really healthy for you. Like most nuts, macadamia nuts are full of antioxidants that can lower your risk of heart disease and keep you feeling full longer. For this recipe, we did receive some free macadamia nut milk to try out, but I was not compensated for this post.
And our smoothie was pretty darn good. Great for breakfasts or an after-school snack.
You can adjust the liquid a little, if you find your drink too thick or too watery. Add more macadamia nut milk to thin it out, or add more Greek yogurt to thicken it up, depending on how you like it. The honey sweetened things up nicely for us — you could leave it out if you like a tart drink, but my kids have a sweet tooth and a little touch of honey was just the thing.
- 1/2 c macadamia nut milk (we used Royal Hawaiian Orchards vanilla milk)
- 1 c unsweetened Greek yogurt
- 2 c whole frozen sweet cherries
- 1 Tb honey
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth. Serve.
