Sometimes, I just crave something sweet in the mornings and sometimes I go for it. I don’t feel bad consuming this smoothie because of the quality of ingredients and all of the healthy fat included in it. If you haven’t checked out my post on roles of fat in the body, see it here. Additionally, see my recommendations for fats to fill your cupboard. So important and often overlooked! This smoothie is especially great for mornings on the go as it can be easily transported. Although I do still recommend eating it with a spoon if possible to get those carbohydrates broken down! You may think I sound crazy right about now but once you learn the process of digestion, you never look at eating the same way again. I mean that in a good way!
Anyway, let’s get on to the recipe. I love the simplicity of it and that I can just throw it all in my high powered blender, press the smoothie button, and voila, a delicious and healthy snack or breakfast.
1 frozen banana*
1 T carob powder or cocoa powder (choose carob for AIP)
2 T collagen hydrolysate
1 T raw honey
Directions: Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until combined and creamy. Serve and enjoy!
*If your banana is not frozen, add 1/2-1 cup of ice. I like it much better with a frozen banana however and bananas freeze rather quickly.
