Energizing Smoothie Recipe!

Last week, I came across this amazing blog post with 20 summer smoothie recipes.  Naturally, I got super excited since I just love smoothies.  The one that sounded the least appetizing to me was actually the one I wanted to try the most. Weird right?  Well, it's because it contains almond butter! Eager to try what most heath-buffs claim to be the "better version of peanut butter", I bought some almond butter from Trader Joe's about one month ago. Alas, just like I dislike peanut butter, I dislike almond butter! I hate wasting things, so I have been trying to use the almond butter up, but to no avail.  When I found this recipe, I tried it right after an intense kickboxing session, and I LOVE IT. It has just the right hint of almond butter, yet it's not overpowering.  More importantly, it is very healthy and very energizing! Full of protein, light carbs and healthy fats, this is a great smoothie for after a workout! Recipe below.
