Recipe Fridays: A smoothie with nutritional punch
1 frozen banana (cut into chunks and freeze the night before)
1 cup frozen strawberries
1-2 tablespoons almond butter
1/2 cup almond milk (or other milk), add more to reach desired texture
protein powder if desired
Place the banana chunks and strawberries in the blender and cover with almond milk. Allow to sit out for 10 minutes (this will make blending much easier). Blend until chunky, then add almond butter, and more almond milk as needed to reach blendable consistency. Blend until smooth.
Seriously, this tastes like strawberry ice cream and makes an oh-so-satisfying breakfast. Replace strawberries with any kind of frozen fruit or a mix to change it up, but keep the banana because this gives the smooth texture.
