Maple syrup and walnuts, if you haven’t tried this combination before, now is your chance! It may taste like a dessert, but there is nothing stopping you enjoying this for breakfast, and we 100% recommend that you do.

Roasting the walnuts is optional, but if you have the time, it truly takes this smoothie to the next level.

Servings

Ingredients

375 mL unsweetened almond drink

35 g walnuts lightly roasted (save 1 Tbsp for garnish if desired!)

1 banana

1 handful ice cubes

1 to 2 Tbsp maple syrup (depending on the ripeness of your banana)

1 scoop vanilla Vega Essentials

Directions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180° C/ 160° C fan/gas 4 and spread the walnuts out onto a small baking tray. Roast the walnuts for 5 to 10 minutes, until just fragrant. No need to wait for them to brown. Once you can smell them, remove from the oven and let them cool slightly.
  2. Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into a tall glass and enjoy! If you really feel like treating yourself, roughly chop the one tablespoon of reserved walnuts and sprinkle on top with a pinch of cinnamon.
