ALMOND BUTTER ENERGY SMOOTHIE


Want to start your day with a smoothie that won’t spike your blood sugar and will keep you full for hours? Look no further! I started making this smoothie when I realized how much sugar I was unintentionally drinking in my smoothies that had lots of banana and sugary liquids. This smoothie recipe is great fuel for your body and has a limited amount of fruit in order to reduce sugar intake. Plus, it’s so creamy and refreshing!


Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 handful fresh spinach
  • 1 heaping tbsp almond butter
  • 1/4 frozen berries
  • 3-4 ice cubes
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tsp chia seeds

Instructions:

  1. Start by putting your almond milk directly into the blender. Then, add the spinach and almond butter and press down into the blender with a spoon.
  2. Add the rest of your ingredients (berries, ice, hemp seeds, and chia seeds) and blend on high speed until desired texture is reached. Add more almond milk for a thinner smoothie and more ice for a thicker one.
  3. Pour and drink immediately to keep you full all day!
