nutter butter smoothies

afternoon snacks are a must in the phillips household. one of our favorites is the nutter butter shake! the kids and i love this shake and make it about once a week {we have other favs, coming posts}. i have used actual almonds in the past, but the kids could not get past the bits of nuts in the smoothie. kids and their textures….so i now use nut butter and they gulp it down and mama is happy to get the protein in their ever growing bodies!

i was given a ninja kitchen system pulse for christmas by my sweet mother-in-law and have not stopped using it. it is great. makes just the right amount for two people, or one husband. dishwasher clean-up, perfect.

i simply pour the almond milk {casein allergies for all}  in first, almond butter second, banana, agave nectar, then crushed ice. blend. and we have smoothies….and so will you! enjoy!

nutter butter smoothie


  • 1 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 Medium banana (broken up)
  • 1/2 cup ice (crushed)
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar


If you are using a traditional blender, reverse the order since your blade will be at the bottom. 


Step 1
Pour milk in first. Then scoop the almond butter in (you can use fresh or pre-packaged). Break up your banana and drop it in. Squeeze in the agave nectar for a sweet twang. Last top off with the crushed ice.
Step 2
Blend. Pour. Enjoy!

…and what’s your favorite smoothie using a nut butter? i’d love to know!
