Almond Butter Smoothie

This smoothie is sweet, creamy and deliciously satisfying.  It’s filled with minerals, antioxidants, protein and healthy fat.  One of my favorite snacks used to be peanut butter.  I would eat peanut butter and jelly, spread it on apples, celery, toast. I just loved the creamy taste of peanut butter.  I guess it was kind of comfort food for me.  Then I learned that peanuts naturally contain high levels of mold on them and are heavily sprayed with fungicide, so I replaced it with raw almond butter.  It took a little getting used to at first because I was used to the highly processed, refined version.  Now after eating the raw almond butter in its natural form  I absolutely love it and I could never go back to the artificial peanut butter.

Almond Butter Smoothie

Almonds are an excellent source of calcium, magnesium and phosphorous essential minerals for strong teeth and bones.  They also contain fiber which keeps things movin in your colon to help prevent constipation and the back up of toxins causing colon cancer.  Just ten almonds contain 2.5 grams of protein so if you’re wondering where you get your protein on a plant-based diet almonds are a good source.

Almond Butter Smoothie

What you start your day off with makes a difference in how you’ll feel during the day and what you crave.  Making a healthy, dairy-free smoothie made up of nothing but fresh, whole ingredients is the best way to start your morning.  It will infuse with you with a quick punch of energy that will get you through your morning feeling light, clear-headed and ready to go! It literally puts a kick in your step. 🙂

Almond Butter Smoothie

This peanut butter smoothie can easily be made into a green smoothie simply by adding a handful of spinach. You won’t even taste it, I promise!  Also if you wanted to make this a chocolate peanut butter smoothie you can always add a tablespoon of carob.  Yum!
