5 stars from 1 rating of Sinful 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.

      Sounds really rich..I'm not used to eating so much sweet so I think I would make it with the ice cubes instead of ice cream. Thanks for the recipe :-)

      Teresa, the ice cubes worked just fine, but the ice cream is just so damn irresistible. Either way it is delicious and hope you do get to try and enjoy this one too.

      Ruchira, if I don't see the calories then they don't exist. Seriously not sure how much calories are added when you put ice cream in, but oh my god it is so delicious!!!

      This sounds like the perfect milkshake! We can't get almond joy candy bars here, but maybe a Snickers would work? I'm all for anything and everything chocolate. : ) Voted up!

      Wow! Another delicious smoothie recipe from you! Like you, I am very fond of chocolates, coconut & nuts. I would like to buy Almond Joy chocolate when I have the chance. I have eaten chocolate with coconut (Bounty) and chocolates with almonds (Cadbury) - so amazing! A wonderful hub with a tasty photo, easy-to-follow instructions and an engaging video! Rated your tasty recipe 5 stars! Well-done!

      Thanks for SHARING. Useful & Awesome. Voted up, socially shared & pinned

      Ishwaryaa22, I am glad to share a delicious smoothly here and do hope you get to try. I have had Mounds (which just has coconut and maker of Alomd Joy too), but never had Bounty. I have had Cadbury Eggs, but not with almonds and that too sounds very yummy. I do hope that you will be able to find Almond Joy at some point, but if not trust me this smoothies tastes so much like it and will satisfy that craving. Thank you seriously for your continued support and kindness. I honestly am humbled and do appreciate it greatly!!

      Docmo, so happy to share and when we first made this one I too was had at coconut and almond. I absolutely love both flavors and was just told tonight that oreos come in coconut flavor now and will be hunting those down just because! So do hope you get to make and enjoy. Thank you also for the votes and share :)
