  1. I came across a recipe with nuts and was not sure, how they would work, but it seems, they work well. This looks yummy.

  2. Not a big fan of walnuts, but I think I’ll have to go see what other smoothies got featured. This monthly challenge is a neat idea.

  3. I would never have thought to use walnuts in a smoothie, but what a great idea and a great way to add in some protein!!

  6. This just reminded me that I have blueberries and strawberries plus ice cream and soy milk in my refrigerator! Am allergic to walnuts, so I can’t add those!

  7. Hi Vicki,

    I am a huge fan of nuts (not good for the diet, mind you), but am not really a smoothy person. I think that’s because visually, they remind me of milk shakes and I hate milk. Some of the flavour combinations that you highlight are pretty amazing though, so I might well be persuaded to give the smoothy a chance!

    Great colourful post,

    Yvonne

  8. Never had walnut in my smoothie but will try it out next time.

  9. This sounds so delicious!

  10. I used to put walnuts in smoothies, not sure why I stopped. Yours looks wonderful.

    If you haven’t already, I’d love for you to check out my CCC entry: Mango Melon Banana & Chia Smoothie.
