Ripe banana and almond butter give this delicious smoothie body and a light sweetness without the addition of sugar or other refined sweetener. For a sweeter drink, you can add 3 to 4 pitted dates and blend for 1 minute. Using frozen banana makes the drink cold and extra thick, but an unfrozen banana works well too with the addition of an ice cube.
- 1 banana sliced and frozen
- 1 cup unsweetened plain almondmilk
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond butter
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and serve immediately.
