Cherry Bakewell Smoothie

What if you could have a smoothie that tastes just like a dessert? This Cherry Bakewell smoothie is so simple to make, with just a few ingredients, but tastes exactly like a Cherry Bakewell tart! If you haven't had one before, they're little shortcrust pastry tarts filled with jam, frangipane, and icing, topped with a glace cherry. 

I absolutely love a smoothie but I am a little guilty of only making the same handful of recipes time and time again, so I'm kicking off a new series of dessert-inspired smoothie and breakfast recipes, following on from these carrot cake overnight oats. Perfect for breakfast, with just a few simple ingredients, coming together in just a few minutes.

The secret to the Bakewell flavour here is almond extract, a little goes a long way in delivering that frangipane flavour and makes it taste incredible. I also used fresh bananas, but frozen will also work, for a thicker smoothie. The almond butter delivers a roasted, deeply nutty flavour, whilst adding some protein and healthy fats, along with the yogurt.
