recipe: banana nutella smoothie

This is one of my FAVORITE things to have for breakfast. It's good by itself when you're rushing out the door or with a bacon and smoked gouda grilled cheese sandwich if you're making it a lazy morning at home. I usually only have them on mornings I have to work, but caved and had one Sunday morning. So fucking delicious!
  • 1.5 frozen bananas
  • 1 cup milk (almond, rice, soy, regular, your choice)
  • 15 whole almonds
  • 1 tbsp Nutella
Throw everything into a blender and blend. Easy as that. Recipe is adapted from fellow fellow's Nutty Banana Smoothy.

I like to prep these to make it quicker in the morning by grabbing a bunch of plastic containers (usually cottage cheese containers) and dropping in the almonds and cut up bananas and throwing them in the freezer. In the morning I pull one out, add the milk and let it set for a minute or two to sort of thaw the bananas. Then I throw everything in the blender and give it a good blend. It yields about 2 cups depending on how big your bananas are. And sometimes I'll throw some milled flax seed in too.
