Strawberry Banana Almond Smoothie

This Strawberry Banana Almond Smoothie is our new favorite smoothie!

I love smoothies for so many reasons. First of all, they’re delicious and so satisfying when they have the right ingredients in them. Second, they are a great way to sneak in extra vitamins and proteins at meals or in between them, and let’s not forget how easy they are to make! As a working mom of two that’s constantly on the go, the simple and fast factor is a big one for me and I know many of you can relate!

As is the case with most of my recipes, I created the Strawberry Banana Almond Smoothie while experimenting in the kitchen with whatever ingredients we had on hand at the time. It contains four ingredients – bananas, strawberries, Barney Butter smooth almond butter and unsweetened almond milk – and no added sugar. The bananas and strawberries combine to give an antioxidant rich natural sweetness, the Barney Butter almond butter gives it a rich protein-fueled creaminess, and the almond milk kicks the protein up another notch. What results is a smoothie that is energizing and totally satisfies hunger cravings – what more could you ask for!

You and your kids will love it and you’ll feel like you’re getting an A+ in parenting when you feed your kids this healthy “treat.” You can make it with fresh fruit or frozen fruit, but we prefer the extra refreshing ice cold taste of frozen fruit after exercising or playing outside.
