I am so excited to bring to you today this smoothie! When my friend Cate from Chez Catey Lou asked if I wanted to join her and a couple of other bloggers in giving away this book Almonds: Recipes, History, Culture I said of course! So Cate sent over a list of recipes and of course I had to pick the smoothie. It was just perfect for our family. We love to whip them up at breakfast time or for their afternoon snacks.
- 1 large frozen banana, cut into chunks
- 1 cup 250 ml unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tablespoon unsalted creamy almond butter
- 1 teaspoon honey or light brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pinch of cinnamon
- Combine all ingredients and puree in a blender until smooth.
- Add additional honey or sugar if desired.
- Serve immediately
The recipe was super easy. I just had to make sure I placed my bananas in the freezer ahead of time so they would be nice and frozen when it was time to actually make the smoothie. It was creamy and full of almond flavor! I can’t wait to try other recipes from this cookbook about Almonds! Don’t forget to enter to win a copy of this fabulous book!!I
