Banana Bread Smoothie

Yum, you can probably consider this smoothie a quick treat.  Sometimes when I didn't want to make the full recipe of something, I just make less of it in a more simplified way.  You can do that with smoothies or even cheesecake.  As crazy as it sounds, you can make a smaller amount of cheesecake just for you.  I have those days where I am too tired to make anything or don't have the time.

After making lots and lots of foods vegetarian style, I've come to realize that certain nuts taste like certain foods.  Pecans taste similar to gram crackers, cashews taste like they could be related to dairy, and macadamia oil tastes like butter.  It's weird and cool at the same time!

Banana Bread Smoothie

  • 1/3 cup walnuts
  • 2 + 1/2 tbsps buckwheat groats
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 ripe banana
  • 1/3 cup kefir or any nut milk of your choice
  • 1/2-3/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 packets stevia powder
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tbsp ground flax seeds

In a blender, blend all of the ingredients until smooth; enjoy!
