Nutty Banana Smoothie

Gluten Free | Vegan | Fructose Friendly

I love having this smoothie for breakfast when I'm on the run or as a quick, lighter lunch option.

I always chop up my bananas, place in a zip lock bag and put in the freezer so they are ready to go when it's smoothie time. The benefits of frozen banana opposed to fresh a thicker, fuller smoothiue texturre and reducing food wastage if the banana is over ripe.

Serves 1

Ingredients

½ banana, frozen

¾ cup unsweetened almond milk

¾ cup water

2 tablespoons coconut yoghurt

1 tablespoon flaxseed

1 teaspoon natural peanut butter

1 teaspoon maple syrup

Handful of ice cubes

Optional:

Sprinkle of crushed almonds or peanuts

Method

Place the banana, almond milk, water, yoghurt, flaxseed, peanut butter, maple syrup and ice into a blender.

Blend until the ingredients have reached a desired consistency.

If you don't want your smoothie too thick, add 2 additional tablespoons of water.

Pour the smoothie into a glass and sprinkle with crushed nuts. If the smoothie is prepared ahead of time, pour it into a bottle so it can be easily transported and enjoyed later.
