I stumbled upon this amazing concoction one day almost by accident. I love to put together strange combinations in the kitchen, but who would have thought about nutritional yeast in a smoothie?
Years ago I discovered the secret of mixing nutritional yeast with peanut butter when making homemade peanut butter cups. Apparently the nutritional yeast gives the peanut butter a more full flavor.
So, why not try it in your morning smoothie? It might not be everyone’s, um, cup of tea — but I think it works! Go ahead and see for yourself.
1 cup almond milk (or coconut milk, or whatever milk you like)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbs nutritional yeast
½ – ¼ C peanuts (or about 2 T peanut butter, depending on what your blender can handle)
ice – as much (or as little) as you like
½ tsp tumeric
1 Tbs maple syrup (optional)
Place all ingredients in the blender and mix until smooth. Pour into a cup and enjoy!
