Banana Almond Smoothie to Help Beat Stress!


This healthy banana almond smoothie is a delicious, creamy treat that does wonders for both mental and physical health. Nuts and flax seed are great sources of omega-3s, which may help effects of  stress and anxiety

INGREDIENTS

·   1 medium to large frozen banana (break your bananas into one-inch chunks before freezing)

·   1 heaping spoonful of almond butter (or peanut butter)

·   2 spoonfuls flax seed (grind in a clean coffee or spice grinder for best results)

·   ½ cup almond milk, yogurt or regular milk  (almond milk offers most calcium!)

·   drizzle of honey, agave nectar or maple syrup - or try it without added sweetness

·   tiny drop of almond extract (or vanilla extract, but the almond extract makes the smoothie taste almost like candy!)

INSTRUCTIONS

1.       Toss all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.

2.      Pour into a glass and enjoy.
