Having fun with our Christmas present, the new Vitamix! Here’s a yummy dairy free smoothie that will satisfy your sweet tooth, but don’t worry, no candy bars required.


1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

7 whole almonds

1 tsp coconut oil

1 tsp chia seeds

1 cup ice cubes

1-2 scoops chocolate protein powder
(I use pea protein based powder- soy/dairy/gluten free)


In a blender, combine coconut milk, almonds, chia seeds, & coconut oil. Whirl until fully mixed. Add ice, whirl again and add protein powder last so it doesn’t stick on the side of the blender. Pour and serve-YUM! I like my smoothies icy–if you prefer yours with more liquid, reduce ice to half cup.
