Almonds have a wonderful nutritional profile and are a great addition to your “fit-focused” diet.
As a throwback to your favorite childhood snack (a PB & grape jelly sandwich) this smoothie includes both almond butter and fresh grapes for an awesome flavour punch. But it’s not just about the flavour here: Almonds have calcium, which aids in muscle function, and magnesium, which helps with bone health. It’s also packed with one of my favourite superfoods, spinach, to give you a hefty dose of protein, iron, and many other nutrients. Satisfy yourself and your body’s needs after a workout with this yummy green smoothie!
1. Using a Blendtec blender, blend almond milk and spinach until smooth.
2. Add the remaining fruits and almond butter, and blend again. Pour and enjoy!
Bonus tip: You can freeze your grapes overnight to chill this green protein smoothie. You can also top with sliced almonds for added crunchy texture!
