Want a delicious creamy smoothie that tastes like American milkshakes without dairy milk or empty calories? Then you have to try this recipe.

Usually I like to go all out adding various fruit and superfood powders to my smoothie. But not this time!!

I’ve created a super creamy smoothie with a slight caramel biscuit taste. Sounds naughty and tastes naughty but the ‘creamy’ taste comes from the frozen bananas, rice milk and protein powder. The ‘caramel biscuit’ taste comes from almond butter, vanilla and a tiny bit of coconut sugar. The great texture comes from ice.

The almond butter provides healthy fats, a dose of protein and lots of vitamins. For example, vitamin E which is great for your skin. The protein powder makes this smoothie more filling and satisfying.

Banana & Almond Butter Protein Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1.5 frozen bananas
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1/2 cup vanilla rice milk
    (or your favourite non-dairy milk + 1/4 tsp vanilla powder)
  • 1/2 cup coconut water
  • 1 heaped tbsp almond butter
  • 1/2 – 1 scoop brown rice protein powder*
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar
  • Toppings
    • carob nibbles
    • grapes

Method

  1. Blend all of the ingredients until smooth.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and add your toppings.

*If you use a different kind let me know in the comments how it turns out. This would probably be good with vanilla or chocolate flavour protein powder, but I haven’t tried it.

Did you know….

Apparently there are 6 almonds in a table spoon of almond butter.

 

What’s your favourite flavour milkshake? and have you ever tried to recreate it?
