Coconut Butter-Banana Smoothie

Coconut Butter-Banana Smoothie: a satisfying smoothie that's gluten-free, dairy-free, and free of added sugars

Whether it's for breakfast, or a mid-morning snack, or a midday pick-me-up, this smoothie is in my regular rotation. No exaggeration, I probably have it 4 times a week. Yeah, it's my new favorite. 


This coconut butter banana smoothie is simple to make - no chopping fruit required - and it's insanely satisfying. In case you're wondering, it's dairy-free, gluten-free, and has no added sugar. What???

Let's make it! You'll need rice milk. (Remember we made some last week?) The other players: a ripe banana, coconut butter, cinnamon, sea salt, and ice.

If you've never tried coconut butter, well, you're in for a treat. It's like coconut-flavored peanut butter. It's all-natural, spreadable, thick, luscious...and perfect in this smoothie as it adds a bit of fat and great texture. I've found coconut butter at Whole Foods and on Amazon. Stock up because I have more coconut butter goodies coming your way. 


Put everything in the blender and blend away! (I like my smoothies not-so-icy, so if you like more of a brain freeze consistency, add more ice than is called for in the recipe.)
