Sometimes I come up with a really delicious recipe right off the bat and I have to immediately write it down. This Green Banana Almond smoothie recipe is one of those. It’s just simply fantastic.
You may remember a couple months ago how I received a Nutribullet as a thank you for volunteering at the 2014 LA Marathon. I love it. I actually recently sold my Magic Bullet (which I was also obsessed with) and now only exclusively use my Nutribullet. It’s just that good. It does everything the Magic Bullet can do and then some.
I use my Nutribullet for making a lot of my morning green smoothies. When I made this Green Banana Almond Smoothie I knew it was an immediate winner. What is my secret ingredient? Almonds! The Nutribullet is strong enough to blend them right into a smoothie which is still so amazing to me. And now here is my recipe for this yummy green banana almond smoothie:
Here’s What You Will Need:
- 1/2 Coconut Milk (I use the kind from Trader Joe’s)
- 1 Banana
- Heaping Handful of Spinach
- 1 Scoop Protein Powder (I used one that is unflavored so it didn’t change the flavor of the smoothie. This is what I used.)
- 1 Handful Raw Almonds (only about 7-8)
- 1 tsp raw honey (optional)
- 3-4 Ice Cubes
Take all the ingredients and put in the Nutribullet (I used the large cup). Blend until smooth.
After I made my Green Banana Almond Smoothie, I poured it into a mason jar and enjoyed with a straw. It was gone in literally less than a minute. I am so excited to have discovered this new delicious green breakfast smoothie and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
