Ingredients

  • 1 cup Almond Milk (240ml) or other non-dairy milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Almond Butter
  • 2 Medium Frozen Bananas (200g)
  • 1 cup Fresh Blueberries (150g)

Instructions

  • Add almond milk to the blender jug followed by almond butter, frozen banana and fresh blueberries.
  • Blend very well until completely smooth and creamy.
  • Pour out into glasses and serve immediately.

Notes

  1. Almond butter - can be replaced with a different nut butter. Peanut butter works great, but any nut butter will do!
  2. Frozen banana - should ideally be frozen at least 12 hours in advance. Whenever you have extra ripe bananas on hand, peel them, break them into quarters and freeze them. This way they'll be ready for smoothies anytime you like. If you don't have frozen bananas on hand then you can use fresh banana.
  3. Fresh blueberries - can be replaced with frozen blueberries.
  4. High powered blender - use a high powered blender if possible for the smoothest, creamiest consistency. If you don't have a high speed blender feel free to add a bit more almond milk to make it easier to blend.
  5. Frozen fruit really helps to keep your smoothie ice cold without diluting the flavors with ice. If you don't use frozen banana then use frozen blueberries and vice versa, so that you have at least one frozen fruit in the mix.
  6. Enjoy immediately - since everything in this smoothie is fresh it will oxidize if you don't drink it right away. Fresh is best.
