Almond Butter Banana Smoothie

I am completely obsessed with nut butter, particularly almond butter. Readers will remember my post on the banana almond butter mug cake that I used to eat for breakfast. Given the weather is now warmer and warm cake-like foods are no longer craved at breakfast, I have converted this little beauty into a smoothie and it is divine! I was inspired to make this smoothie by a small but rapidly growing chain of stores in New York called Juice Press, which makes a range of organic cold pressed vegetable juices as well as other raw, vegan super food treats. This smoothie is quick, easy, packed with protein and extremely filling. Give it a go!


1 ripe banana 

½ cup of ice

2 tablespoons of almond butter

1 - 2 teaspoons of raw cacao

Pinch of cinnamon or to your liking

½ cup of homemade almond milk


Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
