1 large frozen banana (approx. 140g of frozen banana with the skin off*)
1 heaped tbsp almond butter
1 tsp cacao powder
1/2 cup almond milk (or other milk of choice)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
4-5 ice cubes
For the crunch:
2 tsp of either activated buckwheat groats, cacao nibs (or a mixture of the two!)
Or you could even try some slightly toasted chopped pecans
*The riper the banana is before you freeze it the sweeter it will taste in the smoothie
1. Put everything except for the 'crunch' ingredients in a blender and mix until all ingredients are combined - only 30 seconds to a minute or so (I like it to stay somewhat icy) .
2. Choose your crunch ingredient and add it in before a final blend for another 10-20 seconds.
