Spiced banana almond smoothie


Description

A classic smoothie combination is given a new twist with the use of fresh ginger and cinnamon.  This vegan smoothie is a great anti-inflammatory smoothie and is packed with protein from the almond butter.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 large banana (frozen first for a creamier smoothie)
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1/2 cup-1 cup coconut water, water, or almond milk (coconut water is my favorite here, but they all work)
  • ~1/4″-1/2″ piece of fresh ginger, peeled and cut into pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup of ice

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth.  Enjoy!

 

Notes

Edit:  I have been making this smoothie almost everyday since posting the recipe, and I keep changing the liquid amount I use, so I edited the recipe to reflect that.  Use 1/2 cup for a thicker smoothie, and add more for a thinner smoothie.
