Creamy Almond Butter and Banana Smoothie

In This Article

Active time: 5 minutes Total time: 5 minutes

This creamy smoothie tastes like a good-for-you milkshake that is totally acceptable for breakfast or, better yet, after a workout. Ground flaxseeds up your fiber intake without sacrificing taste (making it great for kids or picky eaters). For this recipe you’ll want unsweetened and unsalted natural almond butter so can control your sugar and sodium levels. We also like to use an almond butter made with roasted almonds for a more toasty, nutty flavor.

To make this a great post-workout meal, add a scoop of protein powder or eat an egg on the side to round out to 20g of protein — the recommended minimum for a post-workout snack.
