This recipe is easy peasy. Kind of like our Easy Peasy Tortilla Chips, but tasting like a milkshake. I mean, really, is there anything wrong with this picture?
Believe it or not, sometimes I don’t want green stuff. As I’ve mentioned, I am 100% a recovering sugar addict, BUT living this clean lifestyle has helped me understand why I was so addicted. White refined sugar is like a drug–it actually makes your brain remember the feeling you had (as does MSG) and then reminds you that you need it over and over again.
For me, once I got educated, I was DONE. I wasn’t gonna let some white powdered mess rule my life.
All this confession is for a reason, I promise. One of my first thoughts along this journey was, “Well, what the heck am I going to eat then?” And then it turned into, “Will I ever get to eat sweets?”
I will say that I eat sweets every single day. Lots of my recipes come from some favorite blogs like Detoxinista or Oh She Glows, but some are just from experimenting in the kitchen. You can check out our whole desserts tab to see what we like, plus many of our smoothies taste like desserts too, like this recipe!
This one’s so simple, it feels odd putting it on paper. But, it has a protein punch (from the almond butter) and has a milkshake consistency. It’s guilt free–so I don’t feel bad drinking it for breakfast, although I usually drink it mid-afternoon for a boost!
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 T almond butter
- ¾ cup vanilla almond milk
- ½ cup ice
- maple syrup to taste, optional if your almond milk is unsweetened
- Put all ingredients in the blender and blend until creamy!
