The Southside of Morocco Smoothie

Cooking time: None

Difficulty: Easy
Chef's Note

Breakfast, commonly known as the most important meal of the day, can be forgotten in the early morning rush. But taking a few minutes each day to eat something nutritious isn't hard.

Matthew Biancaniello, Mixologist at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles, loves to serve up a nutrient-packed, drinkable breakfast to hotel guests..

"A refreshing smoothie takes no time at all to make,” says Biancaniello. “Just add and blend some wholesome ingredients, and the result is a satisfying drink to take with you on the go.”

"I always have almonds, in all their forms, on hand because they’re so versatile,” he says. “Almond milk is the perfect base for any smoothie, while almond flour acts as a thickener; almond butter is great for toasty flavor, and sliced and slivered almonds add a crunchy topping to your drink,” he says..

For a slushy texture, blend ingredients with ice or substitute with frozen strawberries.
