BANANA CREAM VANILLA SMOOTHIE




Sometimes you just want something simple, like you would vanilla ice cream. This is a super simple smoothie that I love to make when I am craving just that.  I hope you enjoy it too!

BANANA CREAM VANILLA SMOOTHIE


1 cup almond or coconut milk
1 to 1-1/2 banana, frozen chunks
2 dates
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Yes, that's it!  Blend all the ingredients together in a high speed blender.  Note:  I like my smoothies to be thick and creamy, especially this one.  Start off with 1 frozen banana and then if it looks too thin, slowly add more frozen banana, piece by piece, until you get the desired thickness.  Top your smoothie with chia seeds and raw cacao powder, or whatever your heart desires!  Yum!

Enjoy!

Can't wait to try this tomorrow. Found a vanilla protein powder I am going to try to add to mine.
