Almond Milk Based Smoothie [Matt]

throw the following into a blender:
- 1 ½ cups unsweetened almond milk
- 1 ½ frozen bananas
- 6 frozen strawberries (i suggest slicing them in half before freezing)
- ¼ cup almond butter
- 2 tbsp raw honey
- 1 tsp cinnamon

i've come to a great epiphany. i was influenced while devouring an overpriced smoothie from a juice shop in west hollywood - stop using yogurt in smoothies, and start using almond milk.

unsweetened almond milk is low calorie, low fat, low sugar and creates the perfect base (also lactose and soy free!). i additionally borrowed the idea of adding almond butter (the almond version of peanut butter, not actual butter - that would be gross). the recipe above will blow your mind and ensure you never have to slump back into some artificial-everything joke-of-a-juice shop again.
