Banana Bread Smoothie

8 WWPP Posted by 9 months ago 0 Comments

Ever since I got my NutriBullet I’ve been a little smoothie happy, especially at night. My new strategy to fight the nighttime munchies is to come up with a fun, nutritious smoothie. Something tasty, filling and satisfying.

Well, yesterday, I hit a home run with this banana bread inspired creation. It is simply fantastic! And uses just a handful of pantry items…

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to get on the nuts-in-smoothie bandwagon. They add a wonderful flavor and creaminess. And, for me at least, a great way to get my nuts in as I tend not to enjoy them too much as a snack.

Here’s what I did…

  • 1 ripe banana (mine was 115g once peeled)
  • 6 tbsp pasteurized egg whites (92g)
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Dash of nutmeg
  • A drop or 2 of almond extract
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 oz (28g) shelled walnuts
  •  5 or so ice cubes

Put everything in your blender and blend until smooth.

(If you have some baby spinach this would be a good one to add it to. Yes you’ll end up with green banana bread but you won’t even notice the taste of the spinach. I was actually sad I was all out.)

Leave it go for a good 30 seconds at least. Just walk away and come back to this creamy awesomeness!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.
