Banana + Almond Butter Smoothie
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.
