Dairy Free Banana Smoothie

Peeled, whole, and longitudinal section

My very first post will be simple.  My goal is to inspire your gluten and dairy free cooking, whether you are dairy free, only gluten free or both.  Be creative and substitute.  I love the new tastes we’ve discovered!  I find it exciting!

Breakfast can be difficult purely because it’s hard to get those teens in the kitchen when they would rather have every last minute of sleep possible. Literally!  As moms, we know how important it is to eat breakfast.  Here’s a tasty and nutritional breakfast! Robbie and I love to drink these anytime of the day.

Dairy Free Banana Smoothie

1 banana

1 1/2 cups vanilla soy, rice or almond milk

3 large ice cubes

1 teaspoon of ground flax (I keep the Costco size bag in the freezer)

3 small drops of almond extract (optional)

1 scoop of soy based protein powder

(peanut butter is optional if you want added protein and flavor, but don’t mind the extra calories)

Blend all the ingredients in a blender on high.  Scrape the sides to make sure the protein powder is blended through.  Blend again to make it nice and fluffy.

Makes 1 large serving.
