I bought some almond butter at Trader Joe's over the break and was trying to find some ways to use it. My son suggested a smoothie, so we came up with this one and it is pretty yummy! Feels like eating a milkshake, but not so bad for you.
CHOCOLATE ALMOND BUTTER SMOOTHIE
In the blender, combine until smooth:
1 cup almond or soy milk (or your fav plant-based milk)
1 T. almond butter
1 t. cocoa powder
1 t. agave nectar (optional--I used it when we used unsweetened soy, but I left it out when we used the vanilla soy)
1-2 c. ice
