Recipe credit: Jennifer's Kitchen

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/4 cup raw almonds
  • 1/3 cup vanilla almond milk, vanilla soy milk, or canned coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons carob powder
  • 1 teaspoon Teeccino Vanilla Nut Naturally Caffeine-Free Herbal Coffee – optional
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 frozen bananas, cut into 1” to 2” chunks – divided

METHOD:

  1. Place almonds, milk, carob powder, Teeccino (optional), salt, vanilla, and approximately 1 1/2 frozen bananas in blender. (A heavy-duty blender works best for this recipe; other blenders may not get the mixture smooth enough.) Blend until bananas are mostly blended.
  2. Add remaining banana and blend until fairly smooth. Mixture will be thick; I find it blends best by alternating between cycle 1 and cycle 9** on my blender. Do not over blend or mixture will lose its frostiness.
  3. Serve immediately.

 

Notes:
Don’t skip the step of freezing bananas – this step is essential for a rich, creamy, sweet smoothie and we recommend not adding ice cubes.

For a sweeter smoothie, add 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup (or Carob Syrup).

** If using a Nutri Bullet reduce ingredients by half; makes one.
