ADD A FROZEN BANANA

Nourish and Fete Banana Smoothie

Nourish and Fete

A not so well kept secret of vegans is that frozen banana makes an excellent base for any smoothie. It’s adds a creamy texture without an overpowering flavor.  It’s an excellent substitute for dairy items like ice cream or yogurt. They are a healthy and beneficial addition to any smoothie! Bananas are high fiber potassium rich food with a resistant starch that has prebiotic effects.

A favorite smoothie of mine is quite simple with only 3 ingredients:

  • 1. Add 1.5-2 sliced & frozen bananas to a blender
  • 2. Add almond milk
  • 3. Add a pinch of cinnamon
  • 4. Blend all the ingredient until desired consistency.

Tips: Try different amounts of almond milk and cinnamon until you reach your preferred consistency and taste.

Variations:

    4. Throw in some oats and almond butter like in Vegan Banana Butter Almond Milk Smoothie
