Maple Almond Glow

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz collard greens
  • 1 pear - chopped
  • 1 banana - peeled
  • 1 tbsp mesquite
  • 1 packet maple almond butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

While many people think of mesquite as a savory ingredient connected to BBQ, it’s actually quite sweet, and has been used for centuries as a natural sweetener. Native to South America, mesquite has a caramel-like taste, and includes a good amount of fiber and protein per serving, which keeps blood sugar from spiking and inflammation low. Add in some almond butter for healthy fats, a banana for potassium, and collard greens for more fiber and vitamin A, and you’ve got a high fiber smoothie that will keep you satisfied and energized all day long.
