Just as parents are increasingly reaching for the almond butter over the peanut butter, AB&J (almond butter and jelly) sandwiches are enjoying a serious moment. After all, almonds have more vitamins, minerals, and fiber than their peanut cousins. So it’s no surprise that our AB&J Smoothie is a great choice for both taste and nutrition. Rich and creamy, this sweet breakfast smoothie is packed full of protein with a dose of honey for sweetness. Blend up a batch of our almond butter and jelly smoothie for yourself today or be generous and share this treat with the kids.
