Almond butter, banana and coconut milk blend together beautifully in this simple shake that my kids also love. If you are a food combiner, leave out the almond butter. However, I find the added protein beneficial in stabilizing my blood sugars while pregnant or nursing. Play around with the ingredients. Some will like more banana and ice to make it thicker, while others prefer more coconut milk or almond butter. Add garnish for extra nutrients and beauty.
- 2-4 tbls almond butter
- 1-2 frozen bananas*
- 1 1/2 cups coconut milk
- ice (optional)
- optional garnish: coconut flakes and cacao nibs. I also enjoy a few goji berries with mine
Blend together, garnish and enjoy.
*Freezing bananas: I always like to have frozen bananas on hand for banana ice cream or smoothies. Cut a nicely ripened banana (brown spots are a good sign your banana is at it’s peak ripeness) into chunks. Freeze them separately on a cookie sheet or in a bag. Be mindful of how many chunks one banana equals for you. It will help you know how many to use in recipes.
