Equipment

  • blender

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Banana frozen
  • 2 Tbsp Almond Butter
  • 1 cup Almond Milk unsweetened
  • 1 Tbsp Flaxseed ground (optional)
  • 1 tsp Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Instructions
 

  • Blend all ingredients, until smooth.
  • Garnish with cinnamon, if desired.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Keep frozen bananas on hand in your freezer (store in a BPA free container). They give the smoothie a nice texture and keeps it cold, so there is no need for ice.
  • No flax seed on hand? No problem! You can substitute flax oil, hemp seeds or chia seeds, if desired.
  • I like to use organic, pure maple syrup (avoid those with high fructose corn syrup).
Enjoy!
