I made several smoothies in San Diego on FOX TV including an Almond Buttered Banana Freeze.
Almond Buttered Banana Freeze + Açaí Recipe (adapted from Ani’s Raw Food Essentials) Makes 4 servings
Almonds provide calcium, protein, and vitamin E, bananas are loaded with potassium, and açaí is full of antioxidants and healthy omegas. This easy smoothie is a great post workout fuel – it helps increase circulation and blood flow to stressed muscles, while building lean tissue.
- 2 bananas, sliced
- 1/4 cup raw almond butter
- 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
- 3 to 4 cups Organic Sambazon Açaí Juice
Combine the banana, almond butter, and organic Sambazon Açaí Juice in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. Best served immediately, but will keep for a couple days in the fridge.
