By far, this is one of my most favorite combinations — bananas & almond butter or peanut butter! Yum! This Banana Almond Smoothie is super delicious, healthy and incredibly easy to make. I hope you guys like it just as much as I do! Let’s check it out…
Food For Thought — I used East Wind Almond Butter. It is made from Mission variety almonds. Their buyers secure the best tasting almonds from mature groves in northern California. They never purchase almonds sprayed with PPO and their growers provide certificate of analysis to ensure the quality of the almonds.
After dry-roasting and cooling, they mill the unblanched almonds into Smooth or Crunchy Almond Butter. With the skins left on, East Wind Almond Butter has a dark, rich color and flavor. Their Almond Butter has no added ingredients— just fresh-roasted almonds. No stabilizers, preservatives, artificial flavors, or colors. Almond butter is wonderful on sliced apples and pears. And, it works great as a peanut butter replacement in your favorite recipes. You can order East Wind Almond Butter in 16-oz. jars (4-pack), 16-oz. glass jars (case) or bulk, in 15-lb. tubs or 35-lb. tubs.
