I heart almond butter.
I didn't used to think it was that big of a deal, but now I am most definitely obsessed. Step aside, peanut butter. You just aren't that cool anymore.
I love it on Ezekiel cinnamon raisin toast, on a spoon, and in smoothies like this one.
You wouldn't think unsalted, un-roasted almonds would blend into something so sweet and perfect, but trust me, they do.
Since I've been really sick of fruit smoothies and not sick at all of cookies, I decided to combine the two. I've been drinking this combo for three days straight now and I'm still not sick of it. It tastes like a cinnamony snickerdoodle sans all the saturated fat (no offense, coconut).
- 1 sliced and frozen banana
- ½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or any milk)
- 1-2 tbsp almond butter
- ½ tbsp ground flaxseed/chia seeds
- ½ tsp cinnamon
No pre-heating the oven or mixing wet and dry here. Just blend and sip!
I hope this smoothie makes you snicker. I'm off to class, where I'll probably doodle.
