Banana Almond Chia Smoothie

  

 

I recently purchased a Nutri Bullet.Mom…wow. I am saving approximately $7 a day since I am not getting my smoothies from Whole Foods now.  Juiceris next on my list for sure.

 

I have friends that packed a juicer for a two week long vacation to Costa Rica. It was used a total of zero times. They did buy some parsley at a grocery store though. Oh… their car was also broken into when they were purchasing this parsley. The juicer was left behind. This is a true story.

 

I love you 2 Brown.

 

Banana Almond Chia Smoothie

makes 1 serving

 

1 banana
1/4 cup oats
2-4 tsp chia seeds
1 1/2 – 2 Tbsp almond butter
1/2 cup milk or almond milk
6 ice cubes

 

Place all ingredients in a blender or Nutri Bulletand buzz away for 2-3 minutes. You want it super smooth.

 

Enjoy and be healthy!

 

DANI’S NOTES:
  • You can easily switch out almond butter for any other nut or seed butter. The butter is what flavors the smoothie.
  • Any type of oats will do the trick.
  • Soy milk or even water can replace the milk or almond milk if you have a different taste preference.
  • This recipe is extremely versatile so be creative. Add a teaspoon of cocoa powder for a chocolaty smoothie!
  • I actually use close to 2 Tbsp of chia seeds in my smoothie because I sadly have digestive issues. A lot of them. *eye-roll*

    Whoa. You’re blending for 2 whole minutes?? I wouldn’t have the patience for that.

    Tell Tas to buy you a Vita-Mix…you will not be disappointed and you will not have to blend it for that long, the machine is a joy. We used it for baby food and turned steak into a liquid and that didn’t take more than a minute if that.
