Soothing Smoothie recipe

posted on: 12.03.2012

Finals week: Hate them, can't skip them & your brains fear them.
If you're like me, then the previous statement resonates within your own soul.
I've found that this recipe tends to soothe me & help me get things done stress-free.
It's creamy but light, making every sip a delight! (see what I did there? I was taking a sip when I wrote it ;)

Banana Almond Smoothie
servings = 1 cup

  • 2/3 of a cup of almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract
  • 6 ice cubes
  • half a teaspoon of sugar (or sweetener of choice)*
  • cinnamon*
    *optional ingredients
  1. Add the almond milk, banana, vanilla extract, & ice cubes to the blender.
  2. Blend. Add sugar (or sweetener of choice). Blend again.
  3. Serve in a cup and sprinkle the top with cinnamon according to your taste preferences.
  4. Sit back & enjoy! I wish you the best on your finals :)

This smoothie will be very thick; for a smoother consistency, feel free to add a few more tablespoons of milk.
If you're allergic to almond milk, substitute it for soy milk or regular milk. 
If you're not allergic, be warned—it may become your newest obsession!
