You know all those recipes that call for costly ingredients that you can only find at Whole Foods? Or those smoothie recipes that have 10 ingredients, which, honestly, kind of defeats the purpose of the usually simple smoothie?
This is not that recipe.
It is a sweet, creamy (yet vegan) and tasty smoothie that is a perfect post-workout drink. It’s got potassium from the bananas and a myriad of healthy vitamins, minerals and plant fat from the almonds.
Three Ingredient Banana Almond Smoothie
- 1 frozen banana
- 2-4 Tbsp almond butter (to taste)
- 1/2-3/4 cup cold water
Add all ingredients and blend until smooth. Add more water if needed to get desired consistency.
Optional 4th, 5th, 6th (etc) ingredients:
- dash of cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- dash of nutmeg
This recipe is also good if made to be really thick, served in a bowl and topped with granola.
