Cherry Bakewell tart smoothie (cherry almond) – the traditional British tart in wholesome smoothie kind!
Have you ever ever had a Bakewell tart? They’re an absolute traditional tea time deal with in Britain however I don’t know whether or not they have made it over the pond to the US or not. Should you haven’t heard of them then in short it consists of a shortcrust pastry base topped with a layer of jam, almond frangipane and both a sprinkling of flaked almonds or a layer of icing and a glacé cherry.
It’s nicely price looking for one out, or simply making your personal, as they’re extremely tasty and the cherry and almond flavours work so nicely collectively. It isn’t precisely the healthiest deal with although, so I made a decision to show the traditional flavours right into a wholesome smoothie so as to take pleasure in one any day.
Clearly, this being a smoothie recipe it’s barely a recipe in any respect – simply bung every thing right into a blender, blitz and luxuriate in! I take advantage of frozen cherries partly for comfort and partly as a result of that implies that you don’t want so as to add ice which might water down the flavour. I add oats, chia seeds and almond butter for protein and to make the smoothie extra filling so you may fortunately have one for breakfast. I like to make use of almond milk as clearly it is a cherry almond smoothie, and this additionally implies that it’s appropriate for vegans.
To provide just a little little bit of sweetness I take advantage of a contact of maple syrup, you may use honey as a substitute should you like, although in that case the smoothie would clearly not be vegan. I like so as to add a drop of almond extract to amp up the almond flavour a bit; 1/eighth tsp is sufficient to make it almondy with out overpowering the cherry however you may up it to ¼ tsp if you need extra of an almond punch.
