So, you all know, that I only recently created a fabulous easy vegan spelt pecan pie,…and now, I wanted to recreate that pecan pie in a smoothy aka dessert aka breakfast! You even can name it a glorious dessert because it is spoonable,…or drinkable,…Check it all out for yourself, right?
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients!
Recipe: For 2 smoothies or 2 desserts
1 cup home-made unsweetened almond milk ( 250 ml)
1/2 cup pecan halves (125 ml )
2 tablespoons maple syrup, grade C! (30 ml )
1 + 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon home-made vanilla extract
To garnish on top: a pecan half
Step 2: Method! Blend!
Take your Vitamix & add all ingredients in this order in it. Put the tamper in the lid & blend on high-speed for a few seconds, about 20 seconds, by pushing your ingredients into the running blades. Open the lid & remove tamper & scrape the sides & re-blend on high-speed for a further 15 seconds. Pour or spoon into glasses or dessert glasses. Top each surface with a pecan half! Enjoy instantly or put into the fridge to cool down a bit. :) MMM! The Verdict is: Yummy,…Healthy,….Very Nutty,…Just right! xxx
