Ingredients

  • 2 large organic bananas, frozen (See Notes!)
  • 1 cup Almond milk (I use Califia Farms; You can use your fave plant-based milk!)
  • 1/3 cup Rolled oats, gluten-free if preferred! (I use Bob's Red Mill)
  • 2-3 Tbsps peanut butter, Vegan-approved! (I use Earth Balance)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric (See Notes!)
  • 1-2 Ice cubes, if needed!

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender (adding the frozen bananas, then the rest following) and blend until smooth.
  • Adjust the amount of milk, depending on desired consistency, adding 1 Tbsp more at a time, if needed.
  • To serve—grab one or two prepared glass(es) and pour smoothie into each and grabbing a straw. Top with banana slices and a dollop of peanut butter.
  • Sip and enjoy!

Notes

STORAGE: Store any leftovers in the refrigerator, tightly sealed or in a covered mason jar, ensuring that you drink it within the same day for best taste and consistency.
NUT BUTTER: If preferred, you can always substitute peanut butter with Almond butter, SunButter (perfect for allergy-free needs!), Tahini (Sesame Seed Butter), Hazelnut Butter, etc.
SWEETENER: Instead of using maple syrup or Agave, you can ensure that Bananas are well ripened to create more of a sweetness.
TURMERIC: While adding turmeric is optional, it definitely has benefits: powerful medicinal properties, natural anti-inflammatory ingredient, increases antioxidant activity in the body, and more.
FROZEN BANANAS: After peeling + slicing bananas, be sure to store them in a freezer-friendly zip loc or container and freeze for about 2-3 hours (minimum); the longer the better.
