Magic De-Puffer Smoothie


  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Makes: 2 servings

➜ A vacation or work travel can result in eating saltier food than usual or drinking more booze than you normally do. This can leave you with puffy eyes and a general feeling of being bloated. You can look and feel better quickly with this Magic De-Puffer Smoothie. Potassium-rich bananas counteract the puffing effects of excess sodium, while coffee, a natural diuretic, helps flush fluid. Almond butter adds a dose of satiating fiber and protein to help you get back in balance.


  • 1/2 cup refrigerated unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup coffee, chilled
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 frozen banana


  1. In a blender, combine almond milk, coffee, almond butter, cocoa powder, peppermint extract, and banana until the mixture is smooth and frothy.
  2. Serve in 2 glasses.
