Smoothie time: Banana Almond Protein
This delicious and filling treat is a perfect smoothie for meal replacement or for a good protein boost.
It tastes of almond butter and banana and is packed full of vitamins, minerals and protein!
1 1/2 bananas, frozen
1/3 cup spinach, loose not compact
1 Tablespoon Almond butter
1 tablespoon raw oats
1 teaspoon honey
1 Tablespoon slivered almonds (separate a few for garnish)
1 teaspoon flax seeds (set aside a pinch for garnish)
1 teaspoon chia seeds (set aside a pinch for garnish)
3/4 cup- 1 cup hazelnut milk
2 teaspoons plant based protein powder
1 teaspoon peanut butter powder
Place all dry ingredients in a blender, frozen bananas at the bottom.
Add the milk, as much or little as you'd like. The more milk you add, the thinner the smoothie will end up. The less milk you add, the thicker it will be. If you would like to make this a smoothie bowl, only add enough milk to cream all the ingredients together.
Pour in glass or bowl and top with garnish.
Pictured here are the ingredients I used to make this recipe.
I highly recommend bulk bins for things like chia seed, oats, flax seed, almonds, etc.
You can purchase them in large quantities, generally cheaper than their already packaged counterparts.
Glass jars are perfect for storage and can be recycled from other products like salsa, marinara, jarred peaches/ pears, and more. You can also get some jars at most $1 stores.
