Sneaking healthy proteins and veggies into your diet can be a challenge, but this delicious smoothie recipe fits the bill, and it tastes delicious, too. Not only is it filling, but this power smoothie provides great energy for your day when you have it for breakfast or lunch, or as a dessert substitute. Made with banana, nut butter, carrots and yogurt, this smoothie is rich in protein, calcium, fruits and veggies! I love this power smoothie as a dessert substitute!
- 1 cup of vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 banana
- 2 Tablespoons nut butter (I used almond)
- 4 baby carrots
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Mix It Up
Toss the yogurt, milk, banana, nut butter, carrots, and cinnamon in the blender. Blend all ingredients together until mixed, and serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top for a garnish. You may use your favorite dairy-free milk or yogurt as a substitute, or change out the almond butter for peanut or any other nut butter.

This store carries tons of unique gifts made from recycled and/or upcycled materials, and they support artists by selling loads of handmade goods, most created in the USA. You can see the Pop Top Six Pack set of drinking glasses here.
