Almond Butter Blackberry Smoothie
I like mixing together similar colors to create a bright smoothie recipe. This recipe is a play off of peanut butter and jelly, using blackberries and almond butter together. I thought chia seeds, plums, and broccoli would also support the "purple" theme. You can substitute out the almond butter with peanut butter or any other nut butter. I like to stick vegetables in my smoothies for fiber and to keep the sugar/fruit content low. The healthy fats like avocado make it creamy instead of a high glycemic banana. Kids will love this too!
Tip: If you use frozen berries, they will keep longer in the freezer and then you won't have to use ice in the smoothie.
Healthy tip: Packing your morning smoothie with protein from nuts and a protein powder will keep you full for hours prior to lunchtime.
