There are an almost endless number of great and healthy smoothie recipes that use almond milk in their creation. And many more that don’t but might well taste better if they did! That said, we call this an “almond milk smoothie” because there aren’t a lot of competing ingredients to steal the show. We like this almond milk smoothie a lot, it’s a snap to make, is very satisfying, and won’t add inches to the waistline.
Hopefully, you will enjoy it too.
In your favorite blender mix:
- 2 cups almond milk (or use whole milk if you prefer. But, then its not an Almond Milk Smoothie!
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 peeled and sliced frozen bananas (HINT: Peel and slice BEFORE freezing!)
- 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. Chia Seed
- Ice to taste
If you don’t freeze the bananas first and still want a cold smoothie, then you’ll probably want to as many as two cups of ice cubes.
For a smoothie with more substance (thicker) try adding a quarter to half a cup of plain (or vanilla) yogurt.
Once blended and served, add a finishing touch with a pinch of ground nutmeg or a cinnamon stick!
