Smoothies are a staple in my diet. Blend, pour, go - that's how I roll. I am not what they call a "morning person." However, I have found that I need more protein in my mornings to keep me from bottoming out or eating my body weight in zucchini noodles at lunch.

And so this recipe was born. It's easy- almond flour is just blanched almonds that have already been ground up super-fine for you- so that's one less step. This recipe is also mild on tummies (I still sometimes struggle with a bit o'naus when I wake up) and the perfect way to ease into your day. It's like a smoothie with a hug built in.

1 cup of milk (almond, soy, cow, whatever you prefer, if you choose coconut you'll be sacrificing some protein but it'll taste awesome)
1 banana
1/8 cup (2 tbsps) of almond flour made with just blanched almonds
(I like Bob's Red Mill Almond Flour)

Put all the ingredients in a blender, mix well until its' the creamy dreamy smoothie texture and enjoy!
