Sometimes you feel like a nut… I’m dating myself (again), do you guys know this tune? Remember that commercial for Mounds and Almond Joy candy bars?

Back in the day, I always preferred the mounds, I didn’t really like almonds. Actually, I’m not sure we were even a nut family. Let me just clarify~ we were a little ‘nuts’, we just didn’t eat them much that I remember. Sometimes Spanish nuts on an ice cream sundae, and maybe some mixed nuts that my parents had for parties. But I’m not sure I liked them then.

I remember my Grandmother always had whole nuts in the shell at Christmas time, and we loved cracking them, but mostly the walnuts. Anyway, I digress, my point is, now that I’m an adult, I would choose the Almond Joy. I heart almonds! Raw, toasted, ground into butter, almond paste… you name it.

Which one do you prefer?

Now, also, as an adult, I don’t really eat candy bars anymore. If you’ve been around here at all, you know this. Mostly we eat healthy. I won’t just buy a candy bar. But I LOVE creating something sweet and delicious that actually is good for you. And this Almond Joy Smoothie– It’s the bomb!

It might be my favorite one. I really really really like the chocolate covered cherry one too. The best part? My kids think I’m giving them a treat, and actually I’m giving them super food. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Don’t get me wrong, my kids like healthy food. I don’t really need to trick them. But, I know there are picky eaters out there and people that just don’t like ‘health food’. But I dare them to try my healthy almond milk smoothie (or any of my healthy protein smoothie recipes) they will be converted. ๐Ÿ˜€

For super extra extra creamy and smooth smoothies, I highly recommend the Vitamix or a Blendtec blender. Not only will they rock your smoothies, but so many other things!
