Enjoy this smoothie as a delicious and super healthy alternative to chocolate which contains caffeine and can be over stimulating for the adrenals. If you’re allergic to peanuts – just leave the butter out for a carob-banana smoothie.
2 Frozen, Ripe Bananas
1 tbsp. Carob Powder
2 Medjool Dates, Pitted
1 tbsp. Jungle Peanut or Almond Butter (raw & organic)
1-2 Cups of Almond, Coconut or Seed Milk
Blend together on high speed for 30 seconds or until creamy and serve. Garnish with fresh fruit or cherries if desired!
What is Carob?
Carob is technically a legume, rich in Fiber, B Vitamins, Vitamin E & Antioxidants. Some use it to improve digestive health, lower cholesterol, or just value it as a chocolate replacement. Carob powder is simply the pod ground up, you can likely find it in the bulk section at a health food store or order it online from a health food website like RawGuru or another local website that ships to your place.
What are Jungle Peanuts
Jungle peanuts are non-toxic, as they are grown without the naturally occurring aflotoxins normally found in regular peanuts. Regular peanuts should be avoided all together if this is a concern for you. You can normally find Jungle peanuts at the health food store or order them online at RawGuru. If you don’t have Raw Jungle Peanut Butter just use a raw almond butter or other seed butter of your choice, just note it will change the flavor a bit.
