Banana Carob Smoothie

Prep

Total

Yield 1 to 2 servings

Most smoothies are best eaten fresh, but this one can be frozen and eaten another day.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place almonds, milk, carob powder, Teeccino (optional), salt, vanilla, and approximately 1 1/2 frozen bananas in blender. (A heavy-duty blender works best for this recipe; other blenders may not get the mixture smooth enough.) Blend until bananas are mostly blended.
  2. Add remaining banana and blend until fairly smooth. Mixture will be thick; I find it blends best by alternating between cycle 1 and cycle 9 on my blender. Do not overblend or mixture will lose its frostiness. Serve immediately.

Notes

1. Don’t skip the step of freezing bananas – this step is essential for a rich, creamy, sweet smoothie. And definitely don’t add ice cubes – it doesn’t work.

2. For a sweeter smoothie, add 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup.
