Almond and Banana Smoothie

There aren't many drink-recipes on my blog. And that's because we don't drink anything except milk. Smoothies, juices, soups etc are a rarity at home. And so, I made this simple smoothie for the blog! :) But we loved it. Its an extremely energizing drink. Excellent post workout drink

To make 1 glass
You'll need -
Almonds - 30 grams (8-10 pieces)
Cold Milk - 120 ml
Ripe Banana - 1 small
Sugar - 1 teaspoon (optional)
Vanilla Essence - 1/4 teaspoon
Ground Cinnamon Powder - a pinch

Method -
STEP 1: In hot boiling water, soak the almonds for 1 minute.
STEP 2: Remove & peel the skin. Alternatively, you can use with the skin too.
STEP 3: In a food processor/blender, grind it finely. (a smooth paste)
STEP 4: Add banana, sugar & vanilla extract to this & blend again coarsely.
STEP 5: Add the milk & blend blend blend away~~~ until creamy!
STEP 6: Pour into the glass & sprinkle some cinnamon powder on top. Decorate with a small piece of banana!
