1/2 medium frozen banana (can freeze 1/2 portion in slices ahead of time)

2 tbsp almond butter or nut/seed butter of choice (recipe to make your own here)

Topping:

    Can you use water or coconut milk in place of the almond milk? I don’t have the means of making my own almond milk and I’m never sure which brand to buy
