Description

Healthy enough for breakfast, but indulgent-tasting enough for dessert. That’s the perfect balance.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Milk, Any Kind You Like (I Used 1%, But You Can Use Whatever You Like)
  • 1 Tablespoon Peanut Butter (I Used Creamy, But You Can Use Crunchy If You Like)
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Golden Flaxseed (see Note Below)
  • 2 teaspoons Honey (preferably Raw, Local Honey)
  • ½ teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • ½ teaspoons Organic Raw, Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 pinch Sea Salt
  • 1 whole Large Banana, Peeled, Chopped Into 6 Pieces, And Frozen
  • 1 teaspoon Raw Cacao Nibs, For Garnish (optional)

Preparation

Add all ingredients into a blender and process until smooth.

Pour the smoothie into a glass and sprinkle the cacao nibs on top, if using.

Serve immediately, while it is super thick and creamy.

Flaxseed Substitution: You can use 1 tablespoon rolled oats instead of the ground flaxseed, or if you have flaxseeds on hand but no ground flaxseed, you can grind it yourself in a coffee grinder or food processor.

Vegan Option: Use a non-dairy “milk” (like soy, almond, etc.) and use pure maple syrup instead of honey.

This recipe sounds wonderful but had a question about the vinegar? Do you have to include it? Does it change the flavor if I leave it out?

This was very yummy! If I don’t have frozen banana slices, I just add a couple ice cubes. I was also able to sneak in some spinach which did not change the flavor at all! Love this shake!

Super delicious! I was a little hesitant to make it because the ingredients list is longer than my typical smoothies, but it is well worth it! I will be adding this to my regular breakfast list for sure.
