Summer of Smoothies (week 10): Almond Joy Smoothie

Almond Joy Smoothie | Very Culinary

Do you have a favorite candy bar? Mine are Twix, Snickers, and Almond Joys.

At Halloween, we remove all the Snickers and Reese’s PB Cups because of the kids’ peanut allergy, without any fuss. But I pretty much have to fight Haley for the Almond Joys. 

Since Trevor got his Strawberries and Cream Smoothie, I thought it only fair that I create something to make Haley as equally excited.

The perfect use for the leftover coconut milk I seem to always have!

I’m not a big fan of coconut, but this looks good!

Maybe I should tell my future kids that they have peanut allergies just so I can steal all their Reese’s…YES. Good thinking.

I might have to steal all the almond joys too though…they are a new favorite!

Stop fighting Haley for the Almond Joys and buy your own.
