You will 'fall' in love with this easy to make all natural smoothie. It's energizing and filling enough to enjoy for a quick breakfast. We often drink it to refuel our energy stores after a moderate-rigorous workout.

The Apple Almond Butter Smoothie provides a healthy balance of carbohydrates, protein, fat, and fiber while also offering a refreshingly sweet and nutty flavor.

We recently added chia seeds to the recipe. Chia seeds promote heart and brain health. The omega-3s, fiber, and antioxidants in the seeds help to regulate our appetite, blood sugar levels, and boost our immune system-essential for weight loss and weight management.
