A Week of Smoothies With Once Again Nut Butter

A Week of Smoothies With Once Again Nut Butter

After my daily workouts, I love to relax with a good smoothie. Something sweet but healthy, cool and refreshing, and yummy. Plus I am told that protein after working out helps with continued muscle growth. When I got the chance to sample and review Once Again Nut Butter, I knew I wanted to use it in my smoothies.

They are located in upstate New York and have been manufacturing nut butters, seed butters, and honeys since 1976. Their nut and seed butters are gluten free, non GMO verified, organic, vegan, and kosher.

Also? Delicious!

Day 1 – Cashew Butter and Banana Smoothie:
1 Banana
1 Cup of Almond Milk
1/3 Cup of Cashew Butter
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1 Egg (optional)
Blend all and sprinkle nutmeg on the top.

Once Again Cashew Butter uses the finest organically grown cashews, creating a super creamy organic butter. Expeller-pressed sunflower oil is also added to enhance the smoothness of the cashew butter.

This smoothie tasted like banana and cashews. It has a good deal of the Cashew Butter in it, so it was pretty nutty tasting. It was also filling and I didn’t eat lunch after drinking this one!

Day 2 – Chocolate Almond Butter Smoothie:
1 Banana
1 Cup of Almond Milk
1 Tbsp Almond Butter
1 Pack of Chocolate Flavored Protein Powder
Blend!

Once Again Almond Butter uses the finest organic almonds available, which are dry roasted and milled with nothing else added to produce delicious organic almond butter.

I used the chocolate protein powder I got in my most recent Daily Goodie Box, ALOHA Greens. It went really well with the Almond Butter and I really enjoyed this smoothie!

Day 3 – Strawberry Almond Butter Smoothie:
1 Cup of Frozen Strawberries
1 Cup of Almond Milk
2 Tbsp Almond Butter
Blend!

I didn’t want all of my smoothies to have banana in them so this one was good for a change. It also had a thicker consistency because of the frozen strawberries. For a less icy version, I would have had to add more of the liquid.

Day 4 – Sunflower Butter Green Smoothie:
2/3 Cup of Milk
1 Banana
1 Tbsp Sunflower Butter
2 Cups of Spinach
Blend!

Once Again Sunflower Seed Butter is made from organically grown sunflower seeds, which are milled smooth with sugar and salt added to create a delicious sunflower seed butter.

My one and only green smoothie of the week came out pretty well! I love my blender, by the way. Also, the Sunflower Butter tastes great and I’ve been eating it with a few slices of apples in the afternoons as well.

Day 5 – Peanut Butter and Celery Smoothie:
2 Stalks of Celery
1 Banana
4 Tbsp Peanut Butter
1 1/2 Cups of Almond Milk
Blend the celery and banana first, then add the rest and blend.

Once Again Peanut Butter uses organic peanuts that are dry roasted and milled.

A unique combination, I wasn’t sure how I would like celery in my smoothie, but I liked how it turned out! This peanut butter has less carbs and less sugar than the kind my kids eat and I’m not sure they would appreciate the taste, but I like it!

Blend!

This one may have been my favorite! Pretty simple, but tasted so good!

Day 7 – Blueberry Cashew Butter Smoothie:
1 Cup of Almond Milk
1 Cup of Frozen Blueberries
2 Tbsp Cashew Butter
1 Tbsp Honey
1 Tsp Vanilla
Blend!

No wait, this one was my favorite! The blueberries just tasted so good with the Cashew Butter and the honey gave it just a bit of extra sweetness. I really liked the texture of this one too.

I plan to continue to use these nut butters in my smoothies and I hope you will check them out too! For more information, visit:
