Simple Banana Smoothie

simple_banana_smoothie

This might be the most simple-to-make smoothie on the planet, but boy is it yummy, and it packs a potassium punch*. Potassium is one of the most powerful electrolytes in the body so this smoothie is great right after a strenuous workout, since it contains so many nutrients for recovery, including potassium, B vitamins, fatty acids and vitamins C and E. It’s also perfect for dessert!

*One banana has 440 milligrams of potassium, and that half of avocado also has about 400 milligrams of potassium.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 avocado, pitted and peeled
  • 1 teaspoon raw cacao powder (I like the Navitas brand)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Makes 12 oz / about 1 serving
