Go-To Smoothie

Southern California seems to be in a juicing craze; I'm pretty sure everyone and their grandma has a NutriBullet. And I totally understand the trend. Juicing is quick, tasty, slimming and healthy. But for me, a good old fashioned smoothie-in-the-blender is all those same things, and it keeps me full. I have a few smoothie recipes I like, but here's my basic go-to:

Summer Breakfast Smoothie

1 cup cold almond milk
1 frozen banana, pre-sliced into chunks
1 small handful fresh coconut meat (I buy the little containers at Whole Foods)
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 tablespoon honey (optional, but better with it)

Combine in a blender until smooth. Summer breakfast is served.

You could dress this baby up with berries, cocoa powder, flax seeds, etc. but I like it just like this.
