A Stupid Good Morning Smoothie







This is a massive smoothie packed with calories, but good ones.  And it's crazy good!
I used my homemade almond butter, but any will do.
 So lets get to it!  I shared this with my kids, but you could drink it yourself.  However it's 800 calories.  But it is a healthy 800 calories.  Not all calories are created equally.  You get lots of vitamins, 21 grams of protein, and 60% of your daily fiber.  So depending on your activity level and amount of calories you want to consume in a day, you can decide how much you want to have.  You could also cut the ingredients in half or so for a single serving.  I like to have a really big calorie filled breakfast to get my day started!

Also, for anyone following a Fodmap diet, you would want to remove the hemp seeds, date, and change the almond butter to peanut butter or cashew butter, and switch to coconut or rice milk.  you would then be all set for tasty smoothie goodness






Serves 2-3

Ingredients:

1 tbl hemp seed
2 tbl chia seeds
2 sliced frozen bananas
1/4 cup frozen cherries
1/2 fresh blueberries
3 chopped dates
1/4 cup raw almond butter
1 tbl cocoa
unsweetened almond milk, enough to blend
I'm not sure how much I use, somewhere between 1/2 cup to 1 cup





                                                                                                                   

My kids definitely loved it!  Give this smoothie a try, and let me know what you think!

Nutritional Analysis

Good points
Bad points



            I don't post these normally, but I wanted you to see.  I also posted the analysis.  The bad point it says it lots of saturated fat which would be from the almond butter.  But, I made it myself so that my be inaccurate.  But even so, some saturated fat is good for you depending where it comes from.  Things like unrefined virgin coconut oil, raw nuts, avocados, and unrefined virgin olive oil are good sources of saturated fat.  You can also see it's low in sodium, and importantly all the sugar and everything else is from real food.  It's natural, not added or processed!  That's what matters, not the calories!  The more plant based your diet it, the healthier you will be!!
