We like almonds not only for their nutritional value but also for their taste. I try to implement them as much as I can in daily snacks and breakfasts. That is the reason I made homemade almond butter solely from roasted almonds. It is very tasteful and healthy, kids use it instead of nutella on their bread and I also use it for smoothies like this one.
This mint infused banana avocado smoothie I usually make for kids on the weekends when they wake up a bit later than usual so it is too late for breakfast but still two hours to go before lunch. It is a quick fix which make them happy and fullfilled. Sometimes I add 1 tbl spoon of honey.
