Almond Joy Candy Bar

almond joy smoothie recipe nutribullet

I recently had the pleasure of reuniting with a few friends from my youth and it was requested that I bring a dessert to our potluck. Well, since I no longer eat sugar and prefer not to encourage consumption of sugary foods, but respect those who wish to enjoy them, I decided to try something a little creative with my NutriBullet. I received great feedback and I am happy to report that my friends enjoyed the drink so much, they have joined the NutriBullet family of Blasters!

Back in the day when I used to eat sugary foods, one of my favorite treats was the Almond Joy candy bar. There is something magical about the combination of coconut, dark chocolate and almonds!

Now that I am a devoted NutriBullet Blastinista, I have come up with a recipe to help me relive some of my favorite childhood treats while gaining the nutritional benefits of the ingredients. Not only is this a delicious drink for adults and for entertaining, I think this one will be a great way to expose the younger crowd to the nutritional benefits of NutriBlasts.

What is a tablespoon of coconuts? Also just 1 teaspoon of chia is so little, I wonder why. I usually use 2tablspoons?

"Coconuts" refers to 1 Tbsp of unsweetened coconut flakes. Also, feel free to use more chia seeds...just note (as I'm sure you are aware) that the more chia seeds used, the thicker the Blast will end up!

Good comment on the thicker the blast from chia seeds Krista. Would making a gel from chia and water for about 15 minutes before adding it, reduce the thickening?

This is good; chia seeds are still a little crunchy bits, but I'm good with that! Filling and satisfying ~
