Almond Butter and Jelly Green Smoothie

Almond Butter and Jelly Green Smoothie

Spinach and grapes are packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients— so this green smoothie is super healthy and yummy. No added sugar or water needed– this is a sweet take on a child’s classic sandwich filled with fresh fruit and leafy greens. Grapes are a low glycemic index fruit, so it has a better blood sugar balance. Almond butter is a healthy protein source and the better alternative for a paleo diet because almonds are true nuts that grow on trees (peanuts are actually legumes and grow underground, so not paleo-friendly). Spinach is a powerhouse leafy green packed with vitamin K, calcium, magnesium, manganese for bone health; and plenty of vitamin B2 and B6 for a perfect energy booster!

    I have turmoil with my blood pressure. Most generally always high, but once in awhile I get it lowered, still a bit on the high side. Is there a certain smoothie that helps high blood pressure?

      Hi Charlene,

      Thanks for reaching out! Looking to help lower your blood pressure? Some great smoothie ingredients are blueberries, fiber (Leafy greens (especially turnip greens and mustard greens), Raspberries, Cinnamon, Pear, Flax Seeds, Beets, Carrots, Oranges, Strawberries), watermelon, + bananas. Add them to your green smoothie, along with your doctor’s guidance to improve your heart health.

      Cheers!

      Hi SabChgo,

      Thank you so much for reaching out + letting us know. We’re updating all of our photos, so a few links are out of sorts. We’re working hard to have everything back to 100%.

      Cheers 🙂
