Macadamia nuts are so underutilized. They have the highest fat content of all the tree nuts, so we want to be mindful about how many we eat; however, they also have the best Omega 3:6 ratio.
High in fiber, antioxidants, and manganese, it's a shame they are overlooked.
Now you have a good reason to get them into the mix. This smoothie also has a ton of protein and not a lot of sugar, so it makes for balanced and sustainable fuel all morning (or evening!).
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon hemp seeds (or a scoop of hemp protein)
4 macadamia nuts
1/2 small banana
1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup filtered water
fresh thyme or mint, to taste
Blend with water and enjoy :)
Add a few tablespoons of full fat canned coconut milk to make creamier if you like.
