I am a lover of almond anything. This smoothie balances the almond flavors with the subtle taste of vanilla from the protein powder and wild blueberries. Toasted almonds always seem to add a little flare to dishes, and this smoothie bowl is no different. The beautiful texture of the toasted almonds, and the creamy almond butter taste in the smoothie are sensational.

Almonds have so many health benefits, such as reducing the risk for heart disease, supporting healthy brain function, nourishing skin, and balancing blood sugar levels. Almonds are also a great source of healthy fat and fiber to incorporate into your diet for increased satiety, which aids in healthy weight loss. This is a great post-workout snack, or a morning breakfast treat. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
