Almond Butter & Jelly Smoothie

Sometimes, you just need a good smoothie. Nine times out of ten, when I decide to whip up a smoothie, it’s the same combination of fruit, nut butter, and my favorite protein powder. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s my favorite and it comes out great every single time.

I usually don’t do smoothies as a full meal replacement, but there are times where nothing else sounds good and I just go with it. The trick to not feeling hungry after you drink a smoothie is to make sure that it’s packed with enough protein and healthy fats.

Most smoothies are just fruit and juice which can leave you feeling hungry and even a little sick after you drink them. Even though you may be drinking it, your smoothie still needs to be a balanced combination of healthy fats, protein, and carbohydrates. A balance of all three of those things will leave you feeling great!

This Almond Butter and Jelly Smoothie has a healthy balance of healthy fat from the almond butter and coconut milk, carbohydrates from the fruit, and protein from your favorite protein powder. Go ahead and give this a try for breakfast one day this week!
