  • If you can’t find cinnamon almond butter (or don’t want to buy it for just this one recipe), feel free to substitute plain almond butter + 1/4 tsp cinnamon. 
  • Frozen bananas: I keep a gallon size zip top bag of peeled (overripe) bananas in my freezer at all times. Just break in half before adding to you blender. It makes for a really creamy consistency and adds natural sweetness to smoothies.
