Health Rating
High antioxidant, potassium packed breakfast smoothie!

Ingredients


1 medium Banana (s) (organic, ripe)
1 cup Almond milk, unsweetened (organic)
1 tbsp Almond butter (organic)
1 tbsp Cocoa powder, unsweetened (organic)

Instructions


1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and serve immediately.


 

Notes:

For a sweeter drink, you can add 3 to 4 pitted dates and blend for 1 minute.

Using a frozen banana makes the drink cold and extra thick, but an unfrozen banana works well too add ice cubes for a colder thicker consistency.


Cocoa Powder

is a great source of protein and dietary fiber, it contains iron and magnesium

(cocoa is high in saturated fat so please limit consumption) 

Bananas

are high in potassium and low in sodium, and may help to lower blood pressure

    If you are going to try banana, make sure it is green tipped and freeze it for better consistency. If not banana then simply add 1/2 c frozen berries in its place.Add 1 -2 scoops vital proteins collagen. Feel free to add ice for thicker consistency.
