Superfood Green Smoothie Recipe with Once Again Nut Butter

So I have mentioned a time or two that we have been on a healthy lifestyle since the new year and I have also been cooking at home more. Both were my new year resolutions, but since I have been cooking at home more we have been eating healthier anyways, but I digress. I have been looking for healthy snacks and did you know you can have TWO tablespoons of peanut butter as a protein packed, low carb snack?



I was recently sent this amazing review package from Once Again Nut Butter. They are an employee-owned business, located in upstate New York, that has been manufacturing nut butters, seed butters, and honeys since 1976. Their nut and seed butters are all gluten free certified, non GMO verified, certified organic, vegan, and kosher. Once Again Nut Butter follows Fair Trade and Sustainability standards for their farm partners, suppliers, and prices.



These are the nut butters I received:
- Once Again Sunflower Seed Butter is made by roasting organically grown sunflower seeds. The seeds are milled smooth with sugar and salt added to create a delicious sunflower seed butter.
- Once Again Peanut Butter uses organic peanuts that are dry roasted and milled. Oil separation occurs naturally. To prevent, stir and refrigerate or freeze. Very yummy straight from a spoon!
- Once Again Almond Butter uses only the finest organic almonds available. They are dry roasted and milled with nothing else added to produce delicious organic almond butter. I had never had almond butter before I tried just a spoonful and I didn't care of it as is, but it tasted in the smoothie recipe found below.
- Once Again Cashew Butter uses only the finest organically grown cashews to create a super creamy organic cashew butter. 5%-8% expeller-pressed organic sunflower oil is added to enhance the spreadability of this butter.



In my kit were a bunch of different recipe cards. For some reason, I had my eye on trying the Superfood Green Smoothie Recipe. This was my first green smoothie I have ever made or tried in my entire life. I was so nervous about it. I even gritted my teeth as I was about to try it, but it was so yummy. It tasted like the orange juice to be honest and I might consider about switching to a different juice next time, but if that's your thing then you will LOVE this recipe. I loved it and don't even care for orange juice normally!

Here's what you need:
1 packed cup baby kale (about 2 generous handfuls) - I used spinach
3/4 cup orange juice
1 small banana
1/2 of a ripe avocado
1 tbsp. ground flax seeds
1 tbsp. Once Again Organic Almond Butter
2 tsp organic honey
3 ice cubes

Here's what you do:
Places kale and orange juice in a blender and puree for 2 minutes.
Add remaining ingredients and puree until smooth.
Serve immediately in a chilled glass.

Note: It is best to use baby kale in smoothies. Standard blenders have a tough time breaking down kale completely. Baby spinach can be substituted.

I chose this recipe because I had everything already, but I am very excited to try more recipes with these nut butters. Keep in touch with Once Again on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest , and Instagram to see their latest products and special offers!
