Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or milk of choice - (Note 1)
  • 1 cup frozen banana slices (~1 large banana)
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter (or peanut butter; I prefer almond butter)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • scant 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon, optional

Instructions

  • THE NIGHT BEFORE: Peel the banana and slice it into coins. Place the coins in a sealed bag in the freezer. If the banana isn't frozen solid, you'll want to add some ice to your smoothie.
  • DAY OF: Combine the almond milk, frozen banana, almond butter, vanilla, and cinnamon in a large, powerful blender. Blend until completely smooth (about 60 seconds in a high-powered blender).
  • Enjoy immediately.

Notes

Note 1: You can use a different type of milk; just check and make sure it's dairy free if that's a concern.
