Strawberry Banana Almond Smoothie

It’s National Nutrition Month! and this year’s theme is “Go Further with Food.” What I love about this theme is that it has many different meanings outside of just making healthy food choices.  To me, going further with food means making meals fun and creative, experimenting with different ingredients especially those my kids havent tried, storing food properly to reduce waste and using food as a way to help prevent disease and illness. .

This morning, I created this strawberry banana almond smoothie and it’s definitely on my list of favorites! It’s gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free!  I’ll admit my kids are still hesitant to try smoothies but I always offer it and let them decide on whether or not they want to try it.  Here are the details on this smoothie: .

✨3/4 cup Ripple Foods unsweetened vanilla pea milk (one of my fav dairy alternatives)

✨1 small frozen banana 🍌.

✨4 frozen strawberries🍓.

✨and 2 tablespoons almond flour (which is basically skinless almond that are pulverized to a super fine texture).

Not only is almond flour great in baking but it also adds some protein and healthy fats to smoothies! In an effort to peak the interest of my kids, I topped it off with a strawberry flower, banana star + sprinkled with my homemade granola (recipe on my blog!) it was SO goooood!! The entire smoothie provides 10 grams of plant based protein! 🙌.
