Almond Butter and Strawberry Smoothie

Although this weird looking smoothie may not look attractive, it is however delicious, energizing and will leave you wanting more. This concocation has everything your body needs on a slow Sunday morning or right after a workout - it has abundance of protein and healthy fat that will fill you up and keep you satisfied, all of this nutritious benefits comes from one ingredient - Almond Butter. As always this smoothie contains no sugar, but tumeric which I often used a substitute for sugar. Turmeric arehighly known for their Anti-inflammatories qualities. For those with a sweet tooth like myself I find that turmeric is a great substitute for sugar.

This is a simple, natural and minimal recipe that takes less than 10 minutes to do, especially if you have a busy morning or day that doesn't allow you to cook breakfast. For those like myself that may not consume as much protein or calories in the morning, this recipe is fantastic and a great way to get those needed nutrition benefits in a single serving.
