DR. OZ ALMOND BUTTER AND JELLY SMOOTHIE RECIPE
This is one of our FAVORITE smoothies with almond butter recipes! You can even make your own almond butter first if you own a high powered blender, such as a Blendtec or Vitamix or other food processor! This nut butter and jelly smoothie tastes great and is FULL of nutrition between the healthy fats, carbs and protein, and will leave you satiated without feeling overly full. Perfect as a breakfast smoothie, quick lunch or snack! Depending on whether you add the optional cherries or not (we LOVE cherry season!) this almond butter and jelly smoothie by Dr. Oz comes out a beautiful purple hue. Fruity, creamy, and slightly salty, we’re sure that it will bring back nostalgia to anyone who loved a nut butter and jam sandwich growing up… and is just as easy to make as well! One of our testers added some spinach when she made this again (because she loved it so much!) and it was undetectable, so this is a GREAT smoothie to sneak in a serving of green veggies for your little ones! :)

BLENDER BABES RECIPE TESTER NOTES
“It smelled and tasted delicious- fruity and creamy and slightly salty (from the nut butter). I served some to my brother who is a huge PB&J fan. He loved the smoothie and drank it all right up!” and “I love almond butter and jelly, so it tasted like that which is a major thumbs up for me. One of my remakes I added a cup of spinach, didn’t even taste it in there.”
