My kids love smoothies! We often have them on Friday night movie night. I love that I can make a smoothie for my daughter (dairy, egg, peanut allergy) that is safe AND tasty! My recipe is super simple. I use frozen fruit, unsweetened soy milk, and almond butter. I was looking for a way to add more protein to the smoothies (although, soy milk is a great source of protein) and I decided to add almond butter. To my delight and surprise, the almond butter I used (Barney Butter) made the smoothies super creamy and silky. Who'd have thought?!?
This recipe is kid-approved, mom-approved, and dietitian-approved. Make sure to try to use plant-based milk with good protein and no added sugar. If you or your child is allergic to soy or tree nuts, other plant-based milk and nut butter are easily used as a substitute!
1 1/2 cups of any frozen fruits (try a combination, we love cherry and mango)
1 tbsp almond butter
3/4 cup soy milk (unsweetened)
Add all ingredients to a blender. Blend away! You may need to add more soy milk or even water to loosen the ingredients in the blender. Enjoy! -Meghan
