  • 1 large frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup Almond Breeze Chocolate Almond Milk, plus more if necessary
  • 1 scoop your favorite protein powder (I recommend plain, vanilla or chocolate)
  • 1 packet instant coffee, if desired
  • 1 cup spinach (if you want a superfood boost)
  • A few ice cubes
  • Toppings:
  • Almond Butter
  • Toasted Almonds
  • Chia seeds
  • Low-fat Granola, gluten free if desired
  • Sliced Bananas
  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Carob chips
  • Unsweetened Coconut flakes


  1. Add all ingredients except desired toppings to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. If necessary, add more almond milk and/or ice to reach the desired consistency. The smoothie should be fairly thick so that you can eat it with a spoon.
  2. Pour into a bowl and top with desired toppings such as chia and granola. Serves 1.
