spicy chocolate banana smoothie

If it weren’t for seasonal allergies, spring would truly be a flawless time.

But if you’re a sufferer, there are other options that can help. Cayenne pepper is a favorite for many who like to try and clear their sinuses by enjoying something spicy.

To counterbalance the heat, add a little sweet (and of course, the double ground exquisiteness of our Almond Butter). We’ve struck the perfect balance with our Spicy Chocolate Banana Smoothie*: an amazing start to a day spent in the sunshine!


½ cup MaraNatha® No Stir Almond Butter (Creamy)
1 banana
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 Tbsp. dark chocolate
½ cup Almond Dream® Almond Drink
6 Ice Cubes
