Chocolate Almond Dream Smoothie
Adapted from Whole Foods Market
This smoothie is called a “dream” because it’s made from a delicious and nutritious combination of bananas, creamy yogurt, rich soy milk, almond butter and cocoa. A little chocolate protein powder adds even more punch to this refreshing drink. Enjoy it for breakfast or as a snack. When making fruit smoothies, adding ice to the blender is a matter of personal choice. If you are using frozen fruit in place of fresh fruit you may choose to omit the ice.
