A quick and easy breakfast - a tall glass of high fiber banana almond smoothie.

After all the comfort food, sweets, and cocktails I’ve been ‘testing, I figured that it might be time for something healthy.  I have to say that this doesn’t taste as healthy as it really is.  

The bananas, full of potassium, are great to treat leg cramps.  The protein will provide energy to fuel your day.  Then the fiber, which is slow to digest, will keep your tummy full and get things moving (you know what I mean).  This is a great quick, easy, and healthy breakfast or mid-morning snack.

WHAT DO I NEED FOR THIS RECIPE?

  • Protein powder – Use your favorite brand or even a ½ cup of Greek yogurt.
  • Unsweetened almond milk – I like using unsweetened so that I can control the sugar content.
  • Banana – for potassium and flavor.
  • Rolled oats – you can use quick oats as well.  Steel-cut oats won’t blend smoothly and will leave your smoothie with a gritty mouth feel.  This adds some healthy carbs and tons of fiber.
  • Raw almonds – another source of fiber and protein…plus, they’re delicious and full of nutrients.
  • Sweetener – you may or may not need to sweeten depending on your protein powder and if you use sweetened or unsweetened almond milk.
  • Almond extract for flavor.
  • Cinnamon for flavor and it’s also a natural appetite suppressant.

A quick and easy breakfast - a tall glass of high fiber banana almond smoothie.

VARIATIONS TO THIS RECIPE

  • Peanut butter is amazing in this smoothie and feels so decadent.  The peanut butter powders taste great, add additional protein with less fat and calories than regular peanut butter.
  • Try using chocolate protein powder.
  • Honey is a delicious sweetener option.
  • Swap out flavorings, like vanilla extract, banana extract, or nutmeg.
  • Use different kinds of milk like oat, soy, or coconut milk for a different boost of flavor.
