1 smoothie


  • 1 cup almond milk

  • 1 banana

  • 1 scoop whey protein powder (Optional)


  1. Combine almond milk, banana, dark chocolate, and protein powder in a blender; blend until smooth.

Cook's Notes:

To make homemade almond milk: Soak 1 cup raw almonds in a bowl with 2 cups water, 8 hours to overnight. Transfer almonds and water to a blender and blend until it reaches a pasty consistency. Pour mixture through a cheesecloth-lined strainer into a bowl, squeezing excess liquid out of the almond meal. The remaining almond meal can be used in baking after it has been dried out a bit.

If making homemade almond milk, total time increases to about 10 hours to allow almonds to soak completely, so start the night before.
