Vegan Breakfast Smoothie

Smoothies are a great way to get in a quick meal while sticking to healthy goals. This particular smoothie is one of my favorites for breakfast because it is a great source of protein that keeps me full until lunch. It’s nice too because it only requires 5 ingredients (or less) and blends up quickly. Cocoa powder is an added ingredient that you can leave out if you wish. My husband and I like the cocoa because hello, chocolate. This smoothie would even work great as a dessert, you can even leave out the chia seeds. I like to use almond butter for this recipe because of it’s high protein content and also because it has less fat than peanut butter, but any nut butter will work. Same with the almond milk – if you prefer soy or a different non-dairy milk feel free to use that as well. Another added step is to freeze your bananas. This removes needing to add ice to your smoothie to make it cold. I prefer this method because the consistency of a frozen banana is better to me than using crushed ice. Just toss all of your ingredients into a blender and enjoy!
