Almond Butter and Jelly Smoothie Recipe by Green Blender

Almond Butter and Jelly

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz spinach

  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Oh yes, this is an old childhood favorite. Step away from the Wonder Bread and cozy up with your blender. Adding a dash of acai powder and almond butter (instead of peanut butter) elevates the PB&J -or in our case, AB&J- smoothie to superfood status. Acai is a powerful anti-oxidant. Additionally, it is high in oleic acid and linoleic acid with may help to reduce LDL-cholesterol level and raise good HDL-cholesterol levels.

Can’t get enough of acai? Try the Super Berry and Banana Smoothie.
