Sinful Candy Bar Almond Joy Ice Cream Smoothie
As far back as I can remember, I have always loved chocolate, coconut and nuts too for that matter. I mean who doesn't love a good chocolate candy bar? One of my favorite candy bars is an Almond Joy. So when I got my now infamous smoothie maker, I set out to find a few good recipes. So far I have shared one for a Pina Colada Smoothie and another for a Black Cherry Smoothie. Recently, a question was asked by another Hubpage's author about favorite smoothie recipes and thought I would share another, because of this question.
Today's Smoothie is for Almond Joy and was born out of the need for a chocolate bar fix one day for both my husband and myself. We searched online for a recipe and came up with one for an Almond Joy smoothie, but many of the ingredients we had truly never even heard of. So we wrote them down and went to our local grocery store, where we found some that resembled the ones we were unsure of. We made it and thought about what we liked and what we would do differently.
Of course, we added ice cream (the original called for ice cubes), because what is a smoothie without ice cream! Then we also added chocolate chips too so as to make it taste more like a chocolate bar of course. The original recipe called for almond milk, but we found the coffee creamer that was flavored like a toffee bar by Bailey's and actually liked that better for this one too. Also we perfected the measurements a bit too for our taste buds.
And what was born was an absolutely sinful Almond Joy explosion. I do hope you try this one, because it is truly without a doubt so yummy and just to die for.
