I have been loving this smoothie for breakfast lately! I love oatmeal or pancakes for breakfast, but sometimes I just want something sweet and creamy.
This smoothie takes 2 minutes to make in the morning (no cutting fruit or anything!) so its ideal for when you’re in a rush but want something good for you too. It has tons of healthy, filling fats from the almond butter and antioxidants from the berries.
I equally love this smoothie made with a frozen banana instead of the berries. It is seriously like a milkshake this way- the banana makes it super creamy and sweet.
The hint of almond extract in this is so delicious. It elevates the other ingredients and makes a basic smoothie a little more fancy. If you’re not a fan of almond flavor (like my husband), try vanilla extract instead.
Almond breakfast smoothie. (serves 1)
1c unsweetened almond milk
1/2 c frozen berries OR 1 large-ish frozen banana

Blend all ingredients together and enjoy!
P.s. Kids are into it too 😉
