Anzac Smoothies


IMG_4075There's nothing like baking fresh Anzac cookies. Warm, fresh, a little soft in the centre... that delicious nutty flavour with the sweetness of golden syrup...

And now before I get carried away, I'll tell you why I didn't actually bake Anzac cookies for this post: last week was Easter and like many of us, I consumed my body weight in chocolate eggs. Although I've spent the week cleaning up my act, I couldn't let the day go by without trying to recreate a little Anzac cookie flavour in smoothie form. This recipe is vegan, clean and seriously delicious.

Lest we forget.

Note: You might need large straws. This smoothie is thicker than your average!
