30 Second Smoothie! (Sugar Free & Vegan)



You know that feeling when you are absolutely starving and just need something to eat FAST?! I know it very well. After running errands with the kids, I often like to make this quick smoothie. It helps me get through to the next meal.


What I love about this smoothie is that it is made up of only a few ingredients and contains no refined sugar. This drink provides a protein boost and satisfies my sweet tooth. I like to throw in a probiotic boost to keep my gut healthy and boost my immune system.


Bananas are a great source of prebiotics which support the probiotic bacteria in our colon, allowing vitamins and minerals to be better absorbed. Bananas are also a good source of fiber, Vitamin B6 and potassium. Almond butter offers up calcium, iron, magnesium and protein.





Add to Vitamix or Blender:
2 1/2 cups water
1/3 cup almond butter
2 bananas, peeled
1/8 tsp. liquid vanilla stevia
1 tsp. probiotic powder (optional)


Place all ingredients into Vitamix and blend on high for 30 seconds. Pour into 2 glasses and enjoy!


Serves 2.

  11. You can make it with Peanut Butter for sure. Bananas and PB are amazing together aren't they?! I bet the smoothie would be fabulous with PB.

  12. Thanks so much for linking up. Hope to see you next week.

  13. What probiotic powder do you use??

  14. Hi Hilary,

    I really like this probiotic powder: http://www.iherb.com/Sedona-Labs-iFlora-Multi-Probiotic-2-1-oz-60-g-Powder/7408

    Another option is to open a probiotic capsule or two and pour it directly into the blender before blending. A great brand I like is: http://www.iherb.com/Jarrow-Formulas-Jarrow-Dophilus-EPS-5-Billion-Organisms-Per-Capsule-60-Veggie-Caps/124

    Have a great weekend!

  15. I have to try this… I didn't know you could blend almond butter. Thanks for sharing this on foodie friday, if you haven't grabbed a button already do so and remember to come back next week.

  16. Fun! I do a peanut butter, soy milk, banana smoothie, but I've never thought of trying almond butter. What a fun variation! Thanks!

  17. That sounds yummy too Erica. Hope you have fun making it!
