Don't be put off by the odd-sounding combination of ingredients. The texture is cool, creamy, and refreshing, the taste is warm, sweet, and delicious.
I adapted this recipe from a raw food cookbook. The vast majority of calories and sugar come from the banana, and the banana with the almond butter means it's quite filling - making it a great drink for kids who are busy and don't want to stop to eat, but still need energy to keep them going.
Note: I always make this recipe with 1 cup of water and 1 Tbsp almond butter, rather than 1 cup of almond milk and the nutritional information reflects this.
