I'm not a huge smoothie person: I like to chew my food. I'm also not a fan of bananas. Something about the smell, the texture and even the taste turns me off. But this post is about a smoothie made with bananas! See, I'm full of surprises!
I accidentally got a bunch of bananas in my latest produce delivery and instead of forcing myself to eat them as is or trashing them, I decided to make a few smoothies. The one below was by far my favorite because it had the added natural sweetness from dates and the lovely "let's kill the banana flavor" addition of Nutella!
Banana And Almond Butter Smoothie With Dates And Nutella
1 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 tablespoon Nutella
1. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend till smooth.
Let's talk a bit about paper straws: they are gorgeous, right? Sometimes you can buy really cute paper straws at Target for $1....but they are disgusting to drink from!!!! Do you agree? They tend to disintegrate in whatever you are drinking and feel weird in my mouth....but they do make for cute props.
