I’ve always loved smoothies. There’s just something so enjoyable, even comforting, about sipping a cold, creamy, and satisfying smoothie. It’s basically a treat in beverage form, and this recipe for a Pick-Me-Up Smoothie is exactly that: a treat!
Made with banana, creamy almond butter, almond milk, espresso, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon, this smoothie has a wonderful, slightly sweet almond and coffee flavor to it. It almost tastes like dessert, but for less than 250 calories per serving, you can enjoy it guilt-free whenever you need a natural boost of energy!
- 1 small frozen banana
- 1 tablespoon creamy almond butter
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 ounce espresso or strong coffee
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2-3 ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth.
