This creamy, vegan breakfast drink will keep you going for hours, with no caffeine or sugar crashes. It's adaptable, too-just see the variations below. To freeze the banana, peel and slice, then freeze in a Pyrex container or Ziploc plastic bag.

Variations:

  • For a lighter smoothie, eliminate the avocado, and add 5 ice cubes before blending.
  • For extra brain-boosting antioxidants, add 1/2 cup frozen blueberries.
  • For an even creamier, denser smoothie, use 1/2 cup coconut milk in place of 1/2 cup of the almond milk.
  • For a gentle caffeine boost, add 1 tsp. matcha green tea powder.
  • For extra calcium and vitamin K, add 1 cup baby spinach leaves.
