What you need to make this refreshing Iced Coffee Protein Smoothie
• 3/4 cup unsweetened plant-based milk of your choice (177 ml)
• 1/2 frozen banana
• 3 ice cubes
• 1 tsp. cocoa
• 1 tbsp. almond butter
Only a few ingredients are required for this recipe, it is quick to make and inspires a healthy lifestyle.
Plant-based milk – Use your favorite, or for a richer version, you can use a vegetable cream like Belsoy… Super creamy!
Banana – We recommand using frozen bananas for maximum freshness. Freezing tip: If you freeze your own, peel them before putting them in the freezer. Once frozen, just put them in a blender and that’s it !
Cocoa – We like the flavor complement to coffee, creating that rich mocha experience and the added antioxidants are a healthy bonus!
Almond butter – Gluten-free and rich with vitamins, minerals, fiber, AND protein… almond butter is a healthy addition to this recipe. And because almond butter is rich with monounsaturated fats, it’s good for your heart and your blood sugar.
