This banana almond butter smoothie is super easy to whip up with only 4 simple ingredients! It’s refreshing and guaranteed to be a hit with both kids and adults!

Summer brings out the smoothie lover in me. I mean, I’m always a fan of smoothies but I’m less likely to crave a cold, refreshing smoothie in the middle of winter. Now that it’s blazing hot outside, I could go for a smoothie all day, every day.

I kept it super simple with this banana almond butter smoothie made with Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla almondmilk. It’s made with just four ingredients, three if you don’t count the ice, and it’s really delicious. This smoothie isn’t super thick or heavy, but it still has some healthy fat and protein, so it makes for a filling snack, for both adults and kids.  

I’ve always loved the combo of banana and almond butter (especially on toast), but it’s so amazing in smoothie form too! 

If you have kids, this is a great recipe to get them involved with! They can help pour the almondmilk in the blender, scoop the almond butter, get ice from the freezer and/or press the button on the blender!

Ingredients in a Banana Almond Butter Smoothie

Why Almond Milk?

Whether you’re lactose intolerant, vegan or just trying out dairy-free milks, almondmilk is a great alternative to cow’s milk. My go-to is Almond Breeze almondmilks and I typically reach for their Unsweetened Original or Unsweetened Vanilla flavor. One serving of their unsweetened varieties has only 30 calories and no added sugar, plus they are an excellent source of calcium (no you don’t need to drink cow’s milk to get your daily dose of calcium!) and is gluten-free. I also prefer this brand because of its texture and taste – rich and creamy with a hint of almond taste. Also what I love the rich history behind the brand. Did you know Blue Diamond Growers is the world’s leading almond marketer and processor? It led the development of California’s almond industry since it was formed as a nonprofit, grower-owned cooperative over 100 years ago. Today, Blue Diamond has over 3,000 growers across California! 

As I shared in my recipe up above, Almond Breeze is perfect in smoothies and even in baking or on its own. If you are using it in a recipe, it’s a simple 1:1 swap for any dairy or liquid. 

If you’re looking to shop for Almond Breeze, good news is it’s available nationwide in many local grocers. You can find them at Publix, Kroger, Walmart, Target, and more. Score! They have a handy product locator on their website if you want to search your neighborhood.

How to Make a Banana Almond Butter Smoothie

It doesn’t get much easier than this. Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend on high until smooth! You can use a frozen banana or a fresh one, but I personally like the texture that frozen bananas give smoothies. Of course, feel free to play around and add in extra ingredients like chia seeds or a handful of spinach to make it a green smoothie.

    I made a 12 oz creamy drink using a generous 1/2 cup of the vanilla almond milk, a small fresh banana, 2 tablespoons of unsalted cruncy almond butter, 4 ice cubes, and added a pinch of cinnamon, pinch of unsweetened cocoa powder, and 20g of unflavored protein from protein powder. It was so yummy. Thank you for the inspiration!
