almond banana flaxseed smoothie

A new juice joint opened up in our neighborhood and their almond smoothie is amazing and the inspiration behind my version. It’s dairy free, really healthy, and tastes like dessert for breakfast minus the guilt and the stomach ache.

Almond Banana Flaxseed Smoothie

serves 2 in tall glasses, or 3 in smaller glasses

2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4 cup almond butter*
2 frozen ripe bananas [I break each banana into pieces, wrap in freezer-safe foil, and freeze overnight]
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons honey or desired sweetness

Blend and enjoy.

*Tip: Use an ice cream scoop [this is my favorite] to prevent almond butter from sticking to spoon.

  6. [...] In my life, flaxseeds are like kale: if I can in any way include it in what I’m eating, I will. It should be that way in your life, too, because of the immense health benefits to be had. Contrary to popular belief, they are delicious – even more delicious when paired with a little honey and cinnamon. Recipe and image via Ink Lemonade. [...]
