Strawberry-Almond Smoothie

  • TOTAL TIME: 25 MIN plus overnight soaking

The Good News Although coconut water is low in sugar, it imparts a lovely sweetness to this dairy-free smoothie.

  1. 2 tablespoons raw almonds, soaked overnight and drained
  2. 1 cup coconut water
  3. Pinch of salt
  4. 1 cup frozen strawberries
  5. 2 dried white figs, coarsely chopped
  6. 1/2 teaspoon agave nectar
  7. Pinch of ground cinnamon
  1. In a blender, puree the almonds with the coconut water and salt until smooth. Strain the almond milk through a fine sieve. Rinse out the blender. Add the strawberries to the blender with the figs, agave nectar, cinnamon and the almond milk and puree. Pour into a tall glass and serve.
