Coconut, Vanilla & Almond Butter Smoothie

I don’t tend to make many smoothies during the Winter, but I came across this recipe and I mean, is there really a better combination of flavours? It keeps me full for so long and it’s perfect for breakfast on the go. You could even throw in some vanilla protein powder and serve it as a post-workout treat!
