Almond Butter and Berry Smoothie
This morning I woke up craving a refreshing and filling smoothie. But, oh no! Out of protein powder… What is a healthy foodie to do?!
My protein powder is what gives my smoothies their thick texture so I had to think quick for a substitution… So, I’m thinking thick and then it comes to me: almond butter and oats!
The result was something entirely natural and much more delicious! I may be obsessed with this new creation (even though I will warn you that it sounds… different). Here we go…
- 1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
- 1 cup ice
- 1 cup mixed frozen berries, unsweetened
- 2 tbsp almond butter, unsalted
- ¼ cup old fashion oats (helps with thickness)
Puree ingredients in blender and serve immediately.

This all-natural recipe features fruit, whole grains and almonds. We know almonds are “nuterrific” because they are high in fiber, the antioxidant Vitamin E and heart-healthy monounsaturated fat that won’t raise your cholesterol.
This breakfast is incredibly filling and full of natural energy – Now all you have to do is “bring it”!
