Cacao Banana Pick-Me-Up Smoothie

Make your own Brazil nut milk first!

  • 2 cups Brazil nuts, pre-soaked in water over night
  • 4 cups purified water

Place the soaked nuts and the purified water in a high speed blender. Blend well. Pour through a nut milk bag or cheese cloth. Refrigerate. This will only last a few days in the fridge.

Brazil nuts have a mild flavor that makes a beautiful nut milk, they can be substituted for almonds in many recipes, and they are on the less expensive side. Nutritionally speaking, they have a high selenium content which qualifies them as a “complete” protein. The fat in nuts are monounsaturated, or the “good” fat that is heart healthy. They also have copper, niacin, magnesium, fiber, and vitamin E.
