4 Almond Butter Smoothies To Fuel Your Mornings

4 Almond Butter Smoothies To Fuel Your Mornings

One of our favorite go-to breakfast ingredients this summer has been raw almond butter. Raw almond butter is an absolute essential while you are cleansing because it helps you feel full and is a great source of protein. While you can make a healthy snack with raw almond butter, either by dipping apples into it or putting it in celery stalks, it makes for a great smoothie addition. Smoothies with almond butter give you that energetic boost you need to start the day, and the best part is that they are creamy like milkshakes!

 

Smoothies are a classic breakfast for people who are cleansing. They only take about 5 minutes to make, especially if you prepped the ingredients the night before. One tip we do have for smoothie lovers is to cut up certain fruits and freeze them. That way your smoothies can be cold and thick. If you don’t want to prep a lot of fruit, cut up some bananas at the beginning of the week and freeze them because they make your smoothies creamy; just make sure to peel them prior to freezing them.

 

Disclaimer: If you are cleansing and are going to use almond milk in these recipes, it has to be homemade almond milk. Click here for that recipe. Store bought almond milk, even if it says “unsweetened,” can still contain preservatives. And make sure the almond butter is raw too!

 

For all of the smoothies, blend all of the ingredients together until you get your desired consistency.
