Swirled with an easy homemade strawberry jam and creamy almond butter, this smoothie is the perfect reason to jump out of bed in the morning.
This smoothie is my jam (pun intended) at the moment. I’ve been slurping back glassfuls of it for breakfast over the last week to fuel productive days of work and evening book edits.
Swirls of a speedy strawberry jam are woven throughout a sweet, delectably thick almond butter smoothie. The result is reminiscent of a drinkable frozen pb + j, and it’s too good to miss.
If you’re looking for a smoothie with a special twist, give this one a go. The strawberry jam adds 15 minutes of time on top of the standard 5-minute smoothie routine, and it’s absolutely worth it. If ever there were a great reason to jump out of bed 15 minutes early, this is it.
So grab your juiciest, ripest strawberries, and let’s get to it.
Spoon most of the strawberry jam into the bottom of a glass (or two), top with the almond butter smoothie, and finish with the remaining jam. Then, use a knife or chopstick to swirl the strawberry jam, pulling it through the smoothie layer. Sink a wide straw in it and slurp yourself happy.Print
