A Fueled+Fit member shared a yummy smoothie recipe in our Facebook group last week. It sounded tasty, but my concern was the lack of calories. It would be great for a little snack, but surely didn't provide enough substance for a meal. I couldn't get the cinnamon goodness out of my brain, so I decided to make my own enhanced version. And now...I can't stop eating it. It sort of tastes like graham crackers to me. We've had it every day at my house for the past week or so. We drink it as a smoothie, or make it a little thicker and eat it with a spoon as a "smoothie bowl". Try it out!
Graham Cracker Smoothie
- 1 banana
- 1/2 avocado, pitted
- 1-2 pitted medjool dates (depending on how sweet you like it)
- 1.5 cups unsweetened coconut or almond milk (use 1 cup for a smoothie bowl)
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch ginger powder
- 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon coarse ground sea salt (I use 1/2 teaspoon, but this may taste too salty to you)
- 2 Tablespoons collagen peptides (optional - for added protein)
Serve in a glass, or reduce liquid and serve in a bowl. Top with dried coconut, chopped dried figs - or even graham crackers!
