Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 2 large smoothies

Ingredients

  • 2 large spotty bananas frozen
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 3 tablespoons almond butter*
  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts
  • 3 tablespoons ground flax
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk see variation
  • 4 soft medjool dates
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Weight Gain Variation:

  • Substitute 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk for 1/2 cup almond milk*
  • Add 2 tablespoons hemp oil
  • If not vegan you can also add 1/2 cup full-fat yogurt

Instructions

  1. Toss everything in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve chilled.

Notes

1. I prefer almond butter to other nut butters because it doesn't overpower everything else, but use whatever you have on hand. Sub sunflower butter for nut allergies.
2. So you'll have 1 cup of almond milk and 1/2 cup of coconut milk. It's just too much to use all coconut milk (a whopping 36 grams of extra fat!)
