I have been getting a lot of requests for smoothies, I am not a huge fan of powdered protein. It just doesn’t seem all natural to me, I would rather use ingredients that naturally have high protein like Almond Butter and Almond Milk. Both these ingredients also boost metabolism, score! I’m sure there is a protein powder out there with no chemicals, preservatives or fake sweeteners but what works for me is all natural ingredients, period!
The night before you make this, peel and cut a banana into three pieces. Place in a Ziploc bag and place in the freezer until the next day and while you do that whip up a batch of my Fat Free Chocolate Syrup. It only takes 10 minutes and it has no chemicals, preservatives or chemical derived thickening agents (Hershey’s has all this).
Makes 2 smoothies (or one BIG one)-
1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 frozen Banana
1 tbsp Almond Butter
1 large handful ice
In a blender combine the frozen banana, milk, chocolate syrup, almond butter and ice and blend… That was easy!
Move to 2 cute glasses or travel cups and enjoy. By all means if you are super hungry have the entire thing and it will only be 302 calories. Watch out for the brain freeze!
