This Vegan Raspberry Almond Butter Smoothie Bowl is a perfect way to kickstart a busy morning. Loaded with nutrition and full of flavors, it's ready in just 5 minutes.
Did we just skip spring? At least here in NC, it seems like we barely had a week of spring and it's hot already. The last few days were like 92 degrees F. I mean, come on I didn't even do my favorite springtime activity - Berry Picking. I love going to the farms and picking berries, getting dirty and enjoying some fresh air and farm fun. Honestly, I am looking forward to go on a berry-picking farm soon. That being said, doesn't mean I am not enjoying the seasonal berries, especially raspberries. So on crazy weekday mornings, I beat the heat with a good ol' smoothie. You know I love smoothies. Another addition to TBRTM smoothie list is a delicious Vegan Raspberry Almond Butter Smoothie Bowl with some seasonal raspberries and my new find at Walmart, the Maranatha Creamy No Stir Almond Butter. Yum yum!!!
I love Smoothies.
You know that I love smoothies right? (From here).Guess what, as I am writing this post, it's raining outside. Seems like my complaint was heard and we will have thunderstorms for the rest of the week. Well, at least the temperature will cool down. So coming back to the Vegan Raspberry Almond Butter Smoothie, it's a great way to kickstart your day with a sweet delicious treat. It's ready in a jiffy, just toss the ingredients in a blender, a couple blitz and you're done. Breakfast can't get easier than that. Smoothies are a great way to enjoy seasonal fruits and veggies. Add a plant-based protein and it will nourish your body. So my first choice to add a plant-based protein is always nut butter. It's easily available and doesn't dilute the flavors. Sometimes I make my own, sometimes I just buy it off the shelf, like the Maranatha Creamy No Stir Almond Butter.
Vegan Raspberry Almond Butter Smoothie Bowl
This Vegan Raspberry Almond Butter Smoothie Bowl is a perfect cross between a smoothie and a nice cream. It's got the texture of a nice cream but the goodness of a smoothie. I cannot emphasize enough how easy it is to put this together. It's not the prettiest looking smoothie bowl, I admit but it sure is a bowl full of goodness. Raspberries, Maranatha Creamy No Stir Almond Butter, Almond Milk or milk of your choice & dates. Whip up a smoothie and then garnish it with your favorite choppings like seeds, granola, chocolate or coconut shavings, nut butters, nuts, dried fruits, edible flowers. Unleash the creativity in you (which obviously I didn't do a good job at, remember it was a rushed up morning). I really enjoyed the flavors and it was a great way to use up all the raspberries in my refrigerator before they went bad.
Honestly, I never paid attention to Maranatha Creamy No Stir Almond Butter until recently. Little did I know that Maranatha is one of America’s largest producers of high quality natural and organic nut butters. If you enjoy a healthy lifestyle, Maranatha Creamy No Stir Almond Butter is for you. Pair it with a fruit or a whole grain side, to make a delicious or better-for-you snack.
What I love about Maranatha Creamy No Stir Almond Butter is it's rich, spreadable texture that you can enjoy right from the jar without even stirring it, there is no oil separation. California almonds are perfectly roasted and double ground to get the perfect velvety smooth texture. You can totally skip the stirring.
If you are particular about added additives, sugar and salt then Maranatha No Salt or Sugar Added Almond Butter is an awesome choice to make. You can enjoy the naturally perfect taste of the finest almonds available. I could just dig in with a spoon to enjoy the rich, toasted flavor and ultra-smoothe texture. Yum!!!
So make sure you stop by your nearest Walmart and purchase your Maranatha Creamy No Stir Almond Butter or the Maranatha No Salt or Sugar Added Almond Butter. You can find it in the nut butter aisle.
