This ABC (Almond Banana Cinnamon) Protein Smoothie is my go-to smoothie.

Almond milk, almond butter, frozen banana, organic ground cinnamon, and vanilla protein powder make up the main ingredients, with a few other extras thrown in for yumminess. Here’s I put together my ABC (Almond Banana Cinnamon) Protein Smoothie.

Frozen bananas are a staple in my freezer, as are frozen pineapple chunks. That said, you’ll need a high-powered blender to whip up all the frozen components of this smoothie. I use a Vitamix.

Rather than throwing all the ingredients in the blender at once and then hitting the switch to blend, I’ve found that blending in stages yields the best consistency. Here’s how I blend mine:

ABC (Almond Banana Cinnamon) Protein Smoothie

In your high-powered blender, add almond milk, protein powder, ground spices (cinnamon, cloves, ginger) and blend until combined.

Then add flax seed oil and almond butter; blend again. (This is my favorite flax seed oil. I like to use oil rather than flax seeds because it’s more easily digested and I can also use the oil to make healthy salad dressings.)

Finally, add frozen banana and pineapple chunks and blend on high until frozen bits are obliterated.

Pour it into your favorite smoothie glass and enjoy!
