Classic Almond Butter & Raspberry Jam

Classic Almond Butter & Raspberry Jam Fab Four Smoothie

This smoothie delivers the nostalgic taste of PB&J with a majorly upgraded nutrient profile. It’s super simple and blends together in a jiffy (see what I did there?).

Grab your favorite clean nut butter. That means no added oils, sugars, etc. There should only be one or two ingredients. Dry roasted nuts, and possibly the addition of sea salt. I get my nut butters from Thrive Market, or for an extra treat, go with one of my Be Well Blends x Wild Friends (use code Kelly15). 

An ordinary almond butter and jelly sandwich or piece of toast would deliver two large blood sugar spikes (bread + jelly) and no protein. This smoothie, on the other hand, keeps blood sugar balanced with the magic of my Fab Four formula – protein, fat, fiber and greens.

One scoop of Be Well Vanilla Protein delivers 23 grams of protein. Chia seeds (or flax) offer healthy fat and fiber. And almond butter (or other nut butters) contribute additional healthy fat. Together, the protein, fiber and healthy fats work to blunt any blood sugar spike that might otherwise happen. Finally, in choosing a low glycemic whole fruit like raspberries, we’re significantly reducing our chances of a blood sugar spike.

Ultimately, this means you’ll come away from your smoothie feeling full, calm and energized for hours. No need to snack in an hour. No hangry cravings or shaky hands. Enjoy the magic of the Fab Four!
