Here’s a delicious and really good for you protein smoothie recipe from the author of The Goddess of Raw Foods. She was my guest this week on Food for Thought. While she was there she told us how to make a protein smoothie with great topical flavor using cocnut milk or almond milk. Almond milk can be made at home if fresh almonds are available, but nothing gives you that sunny tropical feeling like a protein smoothie recipe using coconut milk.
1 banana (frozen or fresh)
1/4 – 1/2 cup almond or coconut milk (depending on how thick or thin you like your smoothies)
1 teaspoon of almond, cashew, or peanut butter (preferably raw)
dash of cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
fresh or frozen berries or peaches (optional)
Blend all ingredients in a blender and enjoy!
This tastes like a classic milkshake without the bloating and its full of protein.
You can also make it a recipe for green smoothies by adding spinach it. It will only change the color of the smoothie to green, without changing the taste. Thanks to Nwenna Kai
