Almond Banana Protein Smoothie

This is a weekly occurrence, and although it may seem simple, sometimes the simple things are the best things. 

Making smoothies is all about feel - try to not measure any of the ingredients and use your best judgement. I promise, it will always be yummy and you will learn as you go. 
 

PARTS
⁃ 1/2 cup of almond milk (start here.. you can always add more if it's too thick. I like to add the milk first, it keeps the smoothie flowing) 
⁃ 1 banana (super ripe and frozen is best)
⁃ 4 ice cubes
⁃ 2 heaping spoonfuls of peanut/almond butter
⁃ 1 scoop of protein powder
⁃ 1 small spoonful of cocoa powder
⁃ 2 scoops of Vital Proteins collagen (improves digestion, promotes joint health and enhances skin and hair cells)
⁃ A few dashes of cinnamon 

Optional: add in a little cold brew for some caffeine, a little honey if your banana is not ripe yet, a teaspoon of maca powder or moringa powder or chaga for added health benefits.

 

CLUES
1. Add all ingredients into your blender
2. Blend on setting med-high setting until it looks and sounds smooth, about 1-2 minutes. 
3. If it's too thick, add more almond milk. If it's too thin, add more ice cubes.
