As a busy Mom, I snack a lot! I find myself grabbing for something convenient and that doesn’t always mean that it is the best choice of items. I love snacks, that’s pretty much it. A new product from an amazing company is hitting shelves at your local Cotsco from Larabar. They are introducing two Cashew and Almond Nut Butters – banana nut and chocolate coconut! Yum, both of these products are delicious and definitely made a great snack food. You can add them to a bagel, add them to a recipe or eat it by the spoonful.
I am usually in a super big rush in the morning trying to get my son to daycare and myself to work. It was challenging enough to get myself out of the door but now a toddler is in the mix and he seems to hate mornings more than I do. Since I am in such a rush, I usually skip breakfast. However, I’ve been trying different smoothies recently and the cool thing is that I can make this in the morning before I leave quickly in my blender or even the night before and have it ready to go in the refrigerator in the morning. Then, I can easily drink it on the way to work or during the first part of my day! The new Lara Nut Butters certainly add some zing to my smoothies and I wanted to share a fantastic and easy recipe with you – Berry Nut Butter Smoothie!
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries
- 2 Tbsp. Larabar Cashew and Almond Butter – Banana Nut
- 1 Tbsp. real maple syrup
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
Add all ingredients to your blender.
Blend on high for about 1 minute.
Pour into glass and enjoy!
I told you it was simple!! Check it out:
I have made this a few times and taken it to work. It has a nice sweetness to it because of the berries and the maple syrup. I also love the texture that the Lara Nut Butter gives to it – a nice banana flavor with a delicious cashew and almond addition! I’m going to be adding this in a lot of my smoothies and giving the chocolate coconut a whirl too! Head on over to your local Costco to pick up your Lara Nut Butters. What will you make? I think I’m going to give banana bread a try!
