If you're looking for an energizing, pick-me-up, this Almond Butter & Jam smoothie is the thing for you! I call it that because the flavour reminds me of eating a peanut butter and jam sandwich, which I used to do A LOT as a kid. This is a healthier version of that nostalgic sandwich without the added sugar, table salt and hydrogenated oil - all things that your body does not need.
When I make smoothies, I aim to include all 3 macronutrients - protein, carbohydrates and fat - so that they are nourishing and filling. This one is great for after a workout, or first thing in the morning, as it also has coconut water to help rehydrate the body and replace electrolytes lost in sweating, or fasting all night.
To make it, toss the following into a blender:
Blend on high until creamy, and drink up!
