Banana + Almond Butter Smoothie

Jan 5, 2021Breakfast, Snack

This is my go to breakfast smoothie!!!, I prepare it 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 provide.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 :  

Make sure to use ripe bananas,this will ensure a sweet end product.

Feel free to experiment with different nut butters.I alternate between almond  and peanut butter.

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.
