I’ll let you in a little secret. We at Good Stuff Maple enjoy drinking… welllll three quarters of us do.
Ok, that sounds like we enjoy getting fall-down-can’t-feel-my-face drunk. Not true. But we really enjoy wine, beer, and the occasional cocktail. That’s why we decided we were going to come up with a few signature maple cocktails.
While we were scouring the internet for inspiration we came across a TON of maple smoothie recipes and we started trying them all.
While you wait for the signature maple cocktail recipes I thought I would gift you with a the best maple smoothie we came across and modified it to our tastes.
Fr this recipe you are going to need some sort of blender. We subscribe to the magic bullet (yeah, we were enthralled by those crazy infomercials) but if you have a Vitamix or a Blendtech all the power to you! Also, I am insanely jealous, I want a vitamix sooooo bad!!!
Banana Maple Smoothie
We found a ton of banana maple smoothie recipes. This is kind of a blend of all of them. The version I preferred my daughter hasn’t tried with the pecans because she has a nut allergy. Poor thing will never know the beauty of pecans, oh well! I like to call this one banana bread smoothie.
1 over ripe banana
3/4 cup of vanilla greek yogurt
3/4 cup of milk or soy milk or almond milk
2 tblspoons of chopped pecans (also optional)
2 tablespoons of dark (no. 3) Maple Syrup
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 cup of ice
1/4 cup of oats (very optional. Depends on your love of oats. If you do add the oats up the milk to 1 full cup)
Do you really need to me to tell you about the method? Put all this shit in a blender and blend it until it is the consistency you like. If you add the oats or the pecans you are going to have to blend it longer. Unless you have a vitamix.
MAN, do I ever covet the vitamix.
