Vanilla Smoothie

vanilla milkshake smoothie

What if I told you that this smoothie tastes like a vanilla milkshake, but is packed with fruits and veggies? What if I told you that it’s only made with five ingredients and can be made in less than 5 minutes?! If that sounds good, then you’re going to love this Vanilla Smoothie!

Smoothies are a great breakfast option for busy mornings. I love making smoothies because they can be made in less than five minutes and you can take them with you on the go. Smoothies are also a great option because they can be made with frozen fruits and vegetables. Frozen produce lasts longer and tends to be less expensive than fresh produce. I personally love keeping frozen produce stocked in my freezer to toss into smoothies.

What You’ll Need to Make The Vanilla Smoothie:

Frozen Banana: You will need 1/2 to a full frozen banana for this recipe based on your taste preference. I definitely recommend freezing the banana. I think frozen bananas taste like ice cream when blended in a smoothie and are so delicious!

Frozen Riced Cauliflower: This may sound a little bit strange, but I love adding frozen cauliflower to smoothies. It makes the smoothie thick and creamy and I can’t even taste it!

Vanilla Protein Powder: You will need a good vanilla protein powder for this recipe. Some vanilla protein powders taste chalky and unappetizing. I personally love the Four Sigmatic and Livwell Nutrition protein powders and think that they taste great.

Peanut Butter: Try to use a natural peanut butter with no added sugar or oils.

Almond Milk: Use an unsweetened almond or unsweetened milk of your choice in this recipe. You can use store bought or make your own nut milk. Check out my post on how to make almond milk.
