Five Healthy Pecan Smoothie Recipes To Jumpstart Your Day
Posted by wernuts2 on 18th May 2018
1. Butter Pecan Smoothie
When we think of butter pecans, we tend to think of a candy treat and not a healthy smoothie. However, this recipe uses caramel flavored protein powder to get that candy sweet taste, but with healthy pecans, bananas, and almond milk, it’s still a very healthy option. Perfect for when you want a milkshake, but need a healthy smoothie.
2. Green Apple Pecan Smoothie
When we first saw that this recipe uses homemade pecan milk, we were definitely intrigued. This tangy, but sweet smoothie turned out delicious. A mix of apples, pecans, and spinach, make it an incredibly healthy treat. Plus, we are now inspired to add pecan milk to some of our other favorite smoothie recipes!
3. Strawberry Pecan Oatmeal Smoothie
This recipe can be made ahead and stored in the freezer until use, making it even easier for a quick meal. Using a blend of pecan meal, oatmeal, and strawberries, this smoothie is so thick it could be eaten with a spoon. It’s hearty, buttery, and sweet, and loaded with protein and fiber.
4. Paleo Blueberry Pecan Smoothie
Those of you following the paleo diet, this smoothie is a great option. Pairing the superfoods of blueberry and pecan, this smoothie would be perfect before a workout. The recipe calls for almond or coconut milk, but we think using homemade pecan milk would be even better!
5. Pecan Banana Spirulina Smoothie
Spirulina is an incredibly healthy superfood, but it doesn’t taste that great. Paired with pecans and bananas, you won’t even notice it’s in this smoothie. This smoothie is loaded with potassium and magnesium, so it’s perfect for after a workout for recovery. These are just some of the great smoothie recipes using pecans out there. If you have a favorite smoothie using our Natchitoches pecans, we’d love to hear from you. We are always interested in how our customers are enjoying our Louisiana pecans.
