Serving and Storing - Serve your smoothie immediately! Do you have any leftover smoothie? Freeze it in popsicle molds for a healthy midday snack.
Variations - For a smoothie bowl, simply reduce the almond milk by ½ cup and you will have a thicker consistency to be enjoyed through a spoon. Top with bananas, chocolate shavings, and extra hemp hearts, and enjoy with a spoon.
- Make sure your bananas are completely frozen to ensure the right ice cream-like consistency. To freeze the bananas, peel and chop ripe bananas into 1″ pieces. Freeze in a single layer on a baking sheet. When frozen all the way through transfer the banana pieces to a ziplock bag. Return to the freezer and store for up to three months. When ready to use, just toss them in your blender with the rest of your smoothie ingredients.
- Make sure to blend your ingredients until they are completely smooth. If your smoothie is too thick, add additional almond milk, 2 tablespoons at a time, until you have a pourable consistency.
- This smoothie allows for a lot of variation. For more protein, add your favorite protein powder, chia seeds, or nut butter. Almond butter works well! You can also consider adding Maca Powder and Ashwagandha Powder for mood and energy-boosting properties.
