Light Banana Almond Smoothie

Happy New Year!  I hope that 2016 is starting off well and that you have a very fruitful year.  And speaking of fruit, I wanted to talk about bananas – which is a main ingredient in this quick and easy recipe.  They constantly get the bum rap on whether they are good for us or not.  I too fell into the trap a while back to ditch the bananas due to high carb load.  Well, that’s ridiculous, because there are too many other beneficial nutritional values that they offer, and I’m here to stand up for this fruit once again.  This smoothie is incredibly simple to make, and will do a nice job filling up the tummy all the while, giving heavy benefits on nutrients.  If you find it’s not sweet enough, you can always add a hit almond butter or peanut butter to give it more depth.  I left it out, as my husband prefers this variety of recipe!  Happy 2016!

 

For what it’s worth – BitStrips did not note that I created this cartoon.  I am the original creator of this strip. Thank you!

Banana Almond Smoothie

 

For those that like written recipes rather than the cartoon:

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1/3 cup of raw almonds
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Blend!! (I used a food processor but a good blender will work fine.)  If you like more depth or sweetness, hit it up with a little peanut butter or almond butter!
