Strawberry Almond Green Superfood Smoothie

 This is my go to smoothie after I hit the gym.  I prefer to use Strawberries but any berry will work.  If you are unfamiliar with Spirulina you need to become familiar.  I wrote a post about why it should be added to your daily diet, check it out and pick up a bottle of this incredible stuff to add to your smoothies, yogurts, salad dressings, etc.  Click (here) to find out more.

The Almonds add a healthy fat and I like the boost of protein powder for muscle recovery.  One of my readers made my Avocado Spinach and Blueberry Superfood Smoothie and suggested using Chocolate Almond Milk in replacement of the chocolate protein powder.  Sounds yummy and could easily be used here as well.

I also wanted to share the Oster individual blender below.  Its a great alternative to pulling out the big blender each time you need to whip up a smoothie.  It comes with an individual sized bottle that you mix and drink from.  Its perfect for mixing up your shake before heading to the gym, add a bit more ice pop on the drink lid, throw it in your car cup holder  and then when you leave the gym your shake is waiting for you.

Thanks for the recipe!

‘m not a big fan of yogurt; I ate too much of it. What can you use as a substitute?
Also, what can you substitute for almonds? They give me a headache.

Amandah, Glad you are interested in the recipe. It doesn’t contain yogurt so you should be okay and you can substitute walnuts or coconut oil for the almonds.
