  1. If you have soaked your nuts, great! Rinse the nuts and add them to the blender along with the rest of the ingredients. Blend until smooth and pour into bowl. You can top with chopped nuts, chia seeds and fresh fruit if you'd like!
Recipe Notes

If you haven't soaked the nuts, no problem. You can allow them to sit in the blender with water for 5 minutes to make them softer. Soaking nuts helps to make them easier to digest and allows for better absorption of nutrients.

Bursting with Energy Smoothie
