This smoothie is simply amazing, she loves it and I do too. You need to give it a try, it’s extremely yummy!

Consume along with our Vegan Dreamy Whipped Cream, made in only 5 minutes. So simple, so delicious 🙂
Ripe bananas provide us with a natural sweet flavour without having to add any kind of sweeteners.
We use frozen bananas to get a quick creamy effect. A high-speed blender is needed in order to handle the blending of frozen bananas. If you do not have one, then you should use non frozen ones.
If you have never frozen bananas before, here is a quick guide on how to do so:
Wait a few days until the bananas are ripe enough (the more ripe they are, the sweeter the smoothie will become).
- Peel the bananas.
- Cut them in small pieces.
- Place them into a freezer-safe container or bag.
- Place the container in the freezer overnight.
We are aware that to make a more realistic liquid nutella, we are supossed to roast the hazelnuts, but due to new and important information provided by Doctor Michael Greger, we found out we absolutely shouldn’t.
Very recently, we found out that raw nuts and nut butters have about 30 times less glycotoxins than roasted ones. Michael Greger says “Because of AGEs I no longer toast my nuts or buy roasted nut butters. Such a bummer, because they taste so much better. But, as Dr. McDougall likes to say, nothing tastes as good as healthy feels”. This is very important information because glycotoxins shorten lifespan! So, now we try to eat all our nuts and nut butters raw. Find more info here.
Eating nuts has been associated with plenty of health benefits — from increased cognitive function to protection from Alzheimer’s, as well as keeping your heart healthy. Now, scientists have added more benefits to that list: People who eat a lot of nuts might have a lower risk of mortality and developing chronic diseases, including respiratory disease, neurodegenerative disease, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease, according to a new study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology.
It’s been known for some time that nuts — which are rich in essential nutrients like fiber, protein, minerals, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, and antioxidants — have plenty of health benefits. One 2010 study notes that “by virtue of their unique composition, nuts are likely to beneficially impact health outcomes. Epidemiologic studies have associated nut consumption with a reduced incidence of coronary heart disease and gallstones in both genders and diabetes in women,” and “studies consistently show that nut intake has a cholesterol-lowering effect.” (extracted from www.medicaldaily.com)
