I look forward to drinking my morning smoothies every day. I guess it’s just that sweet, delicious creaminess that keeps me addicted! Sometimes I’ll blend them a bit thicker so it’s almost like an ice cream consistency or a little thinner like a milkshake. This smoothie in particular tasted like straight up dessert…but for breakfast!!
I broke down my first Thai Coconut the other day (not an easy feat for a novice) and drank the nourishing coconut water immediately… so delicious! I scooped out the meat and saved it in a glass container… or what was left of it anyways; I was munching on it with every scoop hehe.
This particular morning I had just made some fresh almond butter in my Vitamix and right after I do that I usually make a smoothie to get all of that butter goodness stuck on the sides of the pitcher. When I whipped up this heavenly smoothie I truly felt like I was drinking a creamy ice cream milkshake, but so much healthier for you! This one made a lot and pretty much filled up my 28oz Weck jar. You could be kind and share, or be greedy like me and drink it all down by yourself 😉
Banana Almond Coconut Shake
*my measurements weren’t completely exact, you can mess with it depending on the consistency you’re looking for.
-2 frozen organic bananas (organic is soooo much sweeter, trust me!)
-1/4-1/2 cup fresh coconut meat
-1/2-1 cup almond milk (homemade is best, if not then look for a GMO free brand without carrageenan in it)
-1 spoonful of fresh homemade almond butter (my butter was simply raw whole almonds blended with a spoon of coconut oil and about 1/2 tsp ground flax)
-1 cube of ice
Blend and transport yourself to heaven!
