This almond milk smoothie is so decadent, yet it only has three ingredients! It's filling and perfect for breakfast!
Whether you are vegan, vegetarian, paleo, keto, or doing the Daniel Fast, this smoothie fits your lifestyle. It's so delicious, you might just be making it every day.
Almond Milk Smoothie
Almonds have such a great flavor, whether in almond milk, almond butter, or straight from the bag. I'm pretty sure I've gone a month straight eating almond butter and banana on Ezekial bread, to the point that I bought the individual packs of Justin's Classic Almond Butter and carried them with me when I travel.
The most important thing about choosing almond butter is to look at the labels! I'm always telling people who ask about the Daniel Fast to please read labels. There is added sugar in so many things!
Canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, fruits, veggies, some brands of almond milk and many nut butters have sugar. This Justin's almond butter doesn't have added sugar, but they do make other flavors that do add sugar so, again, read the label.
If you are keto, you know the worst thing you can do is go out of ketosis. Sugar is your enemy!
How to Make an Almond Milk Smoothie
Add the almond milk, almond butter, and half of a banana to the blender with ice. Blend until smooth.
Top with sliced almonds. How easy is that?
This is such a nutritious way to start the day. Almond milk is low in calories and it doesn't raise blood sugar. It's also lactose-free and rich in good fats. There is a lot of goodness in almond butter.
You may not know that almond milk is also really good for your skin, nails, and hair. Yay for a beauty boost!
The benefits of almond butter are also amazing! The fats in almond butter have been known to lower the risk of heart disease. Almond butter also curbs your appetite. This almond milk smoothie will get you through the morning by filling you up and starting your day with deliciousness.
Other Additions to an Almond Milk Smoothie
You can add just about any fruit to this smoothie. Raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries would all be delicious. Walnuts would also add another healthy boost.
You could also toss in a handful of spinach for more nutrients and fiber. Try different variations until you find your favorite. You may love it as is, but it's good to switch things up now and then.
