Banana Bread Smoothie

Here is another great smoothie recipe!  The addition of the walnuts, dates, and spices gives my usual Banana Protein Shake a new twist in flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 tbsp walnuts
  • 2 dates
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
  • Optional: 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Sunwarrior)
  • Optional: 1 tsp maca powder

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy!

I bet if you add 2-4 tbsp of oats, this smoothie would be even thicker, giving it a really good banana bread flavor and texture.  I may have to try that next time! You can also add a handful of spinach to make a green smoothie!

This recipe, with both optional ingredients, yields approximately 365 calories and 13g protein.
