Breakfast Smoothie- Blackberry-Mango Banana Almond

Here is my trick for making smoothies, the night before I gather the fruit in a plastic bag and place in the freezer overnight.  This way I don’t have to deal with watering down my smoothie with ice.  Sometimes I forget and do add ice, but the taste with all fruit is just way better. Last night I cut up a banana and placed in the freezer along with a few blackberries.  I had purchased frozen mango as well.  This morning I blended together the banana, mangos and blackberries along with homemade almond butter and almond milk. Refreshing, not overly sweet and nutty.  Who needs coffee when you can have this for breakfast?

Blackberry-Mango Banana Almond Smoothie

1 frozen banana

1/2 cup frozen mango

5 blackberries

3 TBS almond butter

11/2 cups almond milk

1. In a blender combine frozen fruit, almond butter and milk.  Blend until smooth.  Its thick but not super thick, I added a little more milk but that’s just my preference. Play around with it and enjoy!
