Almond Butter Spinach Smoothie

You guys!! I’m so excited to be kicking off my partnership with the Almond Board of California today. I’ve been working with them for the past few months and I’m beyond excited to share the recipes I’ve created using all forms of almonds.

In honor of summer being right around the corner, we’re kicking it off with an Almond Butter Spinach Smoothie!

Almond Butter Spinach Smoothie

It’s one of the most important parts of my day and it’s so delicious it really does help me get out of bed in the morning.

Almond Butter Spinach Smoothie

Loaded with almond butter, fresh spinach, a few pieces of frozen pineapple and some vanilla almond milk, it’s not only delicious, but it will also keep you going until your next meal!

  1. I soooooo need this in my life!!!!!! I hate snacking on junk during the day and this is just the smoothie that’ll keep me going without even wanting to look at all the processed stuff. I loveeee that it has almond butter in it! Delicious!!!! :)

  2. Thank you so much for this! I am lactose intolerant and this will be the perfect substitute! And green is my favorite color!!

  3. Two things I don’t use enough in smoothies: almond butter and spinach. Literally have them both on hand always, but never seem to use them in my daily morning breakfast smoothie…always think about it though! Going to have to try this! Thanks, Gaby :)

  4. What a great idea! I absolutely love almonds so why not add them to my morning smoothie along with my almond milk! Thanks for the recipe :)

  5. I really need to get my blender dusted off, and start making smoothies. Besides loving almonds, I like the pineapple in this recipe!

  6. Made it exactly as directed. I think 1 cup of spinach would have been better. I think the spinach flavor was a little too strong, so either use half the spinach or double all of the other ingredients. I have a similar recipe which is my favorite that calls for 2 cups spinach but 1/2 cup frozen pineapple and 1/2 cup frozen mango plus a full banana. I loved the almond butter in this recipe, though. I tablespoon really added a ton of flavor.

  7. I made this for breakfast and it’s delicious! I usually do almonds, but the almond butter was a nice change. Thanks! I’ll be making this one often!
