Okay, so there isn’t actually any peanut butter in this smoothie, but it does use raw almond butter. You are more than welcome to substitute actual peanut butter though if you so desire, but since becoming a raw food fan I have converted to almond butter. This delicious smoothie has already become on of my favorites, and was my fiancées idea! Last, night while we were grocery shopping I asked her for an idea for a Smoothie Tuesday post. I was hoping for something not containing bananas this time, since a majority of the smoothies I make contain them. The resulting smoothie consists of mostly delicious berries, and goes down smooth!
- 4oz frozen strawberries
- 4 0z frozen black berries
- 4 oz frozen raspberries
- 2+ TBSP of raw almond butter
- 2-3 TBSP of raw honey (or agave to make it completely vegan)
- 1.5 cups of almond milk
Process all contents in a blender. Yields, two servings, or one for a very hungry individual! I could have easily drank both this morning.
Also, I have set up an email distribution list to send out updates about Adventure Naturals. Updates will include information about the start of our new business, special offers, healthy tips, and more. We plan on launching or raw food energy bars and seasoned nuts early next year.
In other news, I had an MRI yesterday on my knees, hip and low back. I have still had a lot of pain from my bicycle accident. My chiropractor thought it would be a good idea to have everything checked out since the swelling still hadn’t gone down all the way, in addition to the pain. I should get the results back today, and will be posting an update here as well as on Twitter.
I also plan on heading out to Enchanted Rock this weekend. I’m itching to get outdoors. I don’t think I will be able to get any climbing in because of my condition, but I still hope to hike around a bit. Regardless of how much activity I actually get to do, it will be worth getting outside and enjoying some clean air, away from the city.
