This salted caramel smoothie recipe makes for a delicious breakfast, midday snack or even a better-for-you treat after dinner. It’s packed full of nutrients and will keep you feeling satisfied for hours.
I’ve always been a huge smoothie drinker – I have at least one smoothie every single day, sometimes two. Every morning, I start my day off with a big, fruit and vegetable packed smoothie, and if I’m feeling like something light for dinner, I might have a smoothie then, too.
Recently, I’ve been enjoying making dessert smoothies for those times where you just feel like something sweet after dinner. A dessert smoothie is also a great way to treat my toddler without overloading on refined sugar, artificial flavors, etc.
There’s something so decadent about salted caramel, so I decided to see if I could create a salted caramel smoothie recipe that was healthy but managed to capture that incredible sweet and salty flavor.
Let me tell you – this salted caramel smoothie is SO good.
There’s one member of my family (who shall not be named!) who has a strange aversion to smoothies.
I managed to convince said family member to try this (I think the words “salted caramel” were a big factor) and she’s now a smoothie convert. Well, a salted caramel smoothie convert, at least.
I don’t drink cow’s milk, so I used almond milk in this salted caramel smoothie recipe.
I recommend using almond milk in this smoothie (because I can guarantee it tastes incredible with almond milk.)
If you don’t drink almond milk then you can try substituting it for cows milk or another plant-based milk, however I can’t guarantee the flavor profile won’t change significantly.
