Smooth Sundays

I was craving a smoothie, something thick and satisfying.  No surprises with the combination here but it just tasted sooooooo good I had to post it.  I love the vitamix to make smoothies as it makes them taste just like out of a diner.  I also like this desert / snack as it has no sugar in it and a tonne of protein.  The raw almonds also give it a lovely blush tone to the mixture as well so it feels very Sunday Stylish to me too.  

You will need:

  • 2 bananas
  • heaped big spoon of peanut butter (no sugar)
  • 2/3 cup of raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • heaped teaspoon of cocoa powder
  • cup of ice

Put everything into the vitamix / blender and wizz up to make a creamy smooth mixture.  Serve with a straw.  You could make it more chocolaty if you added more cocoa powder, or more nutty with more peanut butter, you can make it thicker with less almond milk if you want a real thick shake.  It totally depends on your cravings.  Call me Goldielocks, I got this one JUST right...
