Banana + Almond Butter Smoothie
This is my go to breakfast smoothie!!!, I prepare this Banana + Almond Butter Smoothie both at work and home. One of the key benefits of this Banana + Almond butter smoothie is it’s high content of both potassium and protein. Potassium as we all know is a key mineral in the regulation of blood pressure and a plant -based protein.I like to use a good quality organic, non- fat, plain or vanilla -flavored greek yogurt.This ensures a smoothie that’s not only low in saturated fat and added sugar,but also one that provides much needed live and active cultures.
A few tips :
Bananas | Make sure to use ripe bananas,this will ensure a sweet end product.
Almond Butter | Feel free to experiment with different nut butters.I alternate between almond and peanut butter.
Greek Yogurt | Results vary greatly, depending mostly on the type of yogurt used. If you use a vanilla -flavored greek yogurt the result is usually a less acidic smoothie.Just make sure to read the label so that it doesn’t contain any added sugar.Using a plain flavored yogurt
Customize your smoothie according to your specific dietary needs :
For constipation and omega 3 fatty acids add flaxseeds
For immunity boost add turmeric powder

For hay fever add bee pollen
