Blueberry Almond Milk Smoothie
This blueberry almond milk smoothie is loaded with all good things: blueberries, almond butter, almond milk and a little bit of maple syrup. Add in a little bit of protein powder and you are good to go.
- and vegetarian.
Always a hit with the kids, and really filling thanks to 2 nice big spoonfuls of almond butter.
Can I Make This Nut Free?
Smoothies are the perfect vehicle for using your imagination and trying something different. Try these in place of the nut milks and butters:
- cow’s milk
- oat milk
- rice milk
- soy milk
- coconut butter
Don’t be afraid to change things up and make it your own, you really can’t go wrong.
What Do You Need For The Perfect Smoothie?
Smoothies are so much easier to make if you have a really good high powered blender.
This is especially so when you move to green smoothies, as you really want those greens pulverized, as there is nothing worse than bits in your smoothie (unless those bits are granola!)
I have had my Vitamix for years and highly recommend it. My mum has a Ninjawhich I use when I stay at her place, and it is pretty good too (but I love my Vitamix.)
You will also need some reusable straws for slurping that goodness up! Especially if you are giving the smoothie to kids as you don’t want them spilling bright purple smoothie everywhere – that stuff stains!!
