(Almost) every time I see a shake or smoothie recipe posted on my favorite food blogs or on the pages of a magazine, I think, “I should try that.”
Yet, I rarely make it past this shake.It tastes rich and unwholesome but really is made from a few simple good-for-you ingredients with no dairy or sugar in sight and was inspired by this recipe over at Healthy. Happy. Life.
Enough said. With summer is in full swing and school starting in less that one month for us, I’m keeping this post short and sweet…
Smooth and creamy, this shake is a perfect combination of salty and sweet.
- 1 banana, pre-sliced & frozen
- 3 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- dashes cinnamon
- 1/2-3/4 cup unsweetened, dairy-free milk
Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender, starting with ½ cup of almond milk. Blend until smooth, adding more milk as needed to produce a thick but pourable shake.
I love using unsweetened almond milk for this, but suspect it would be yummy with unsweetened coconut milk too! For a peanut free version, try walnuts. To keep the recipe raw, use a raw nut butter.
