Low Calorie Almond Butter Smoothie Meal Prep and Storage

Meal Prep

  • Individual Smoothie Bags – Add the almond butter smoothie ingredients (less any liquid) to a sandwich bag and seal. Store in the freezer (will hold for 1 month in freezer). 
  • Family Sized Smoothie Bags  – Add several servings worth of ingredients (less any liquid) to a gallon freezer bag. Place a 1/2 cup plastic measuring cup in the bag. Close and seal the bag, and store in the freezer (will hold for 1 month in freezer). 
  • Prepared Smoothies – these smoothies are best made fresh, but you can make them ahead of time and store in a clean jar (with a lid) in the fridge. 

Leftover Storage

  • Fridge Storage – Add any leftover smoothie to a jar (I actually serve them in jars so all I have to do is add a lid). Close and store in the fridge for 2-3 days. 
  • Freezer Storage – Pour any leftover smoothie into ice cube molds, and freeze solid (about 4 hours). Then pop out of the mold and move to a freezer bag to avoid freezer burn. Will hold for 1 month in the freezer.

How to Add More Protein to this Banana Almond Smoothie:

  • Greek Yogurt… is a great metabolism boosting ingredient to add to your almond butter smoothie recipe. Just add 1/4 cup per serving. Get unflavored and unsweetened to make a almond milk smoothie healthy. 
  • Protein Powder… we have supplied you with our favorite Orgain Organic Plant Based Protein Powder in vanilla flavor. It’s vegan and all-natural (plus it adds 21 grams of protein!)
  • Chocolate Protein Powder… if you love chocolate, Orgain Organic Plant Based Protein Powder also comes in chocolate peanut butter… YUM!
  • Collagen Powder… for our non vegan and vegetarian readers, collagen power is a great option. It has no flavor and 18 grams of protein. Plus you can add it to soups, tea… even your morning coffee!

    This smoothie is really good. I used 2/3 cup almond milk and it was still pretty thick, but this recipe will go on my “Faves” list.
