Beat the heat with this refreshing fruit smoothie. Frozen berries combine with fresh orange, ginger, and creamy peanut butter for the ultimate summer smoothie!
Anyway, every single time I went into Costco I’d see the huge display of Kirkland Almond Butter. Until I ran out and needed it. I’ve said it before that I have a love-hate with Costco, and let me tell you, this trip was a hate. No grass-fed butter to be found, no rotisserie chickens ready, and no almond butter. I’m pretty sure I walked around the whole store 3 times looking for it even though I knew where it should be.
I’m pretty sure I teared up a little over this. Yes, I’m aware of how dramatic that sounds, but it was a busy Saturday and the thought of going to another store to buy a small jar of overpriced almond butter was too much for me. So, I settled for the Kirkland Natural Creamy Peanut Butter instead.
Now I’ve been making my smoothie with the peanut butter instead of almond butter and it’s just as delicious. It’s also just as delicious by the spoonful incase you were wondering.
I love the combination of oranges and berries. The sweet orange gives the smoothie great flavor and the berries give it such a pretty color. The ginger though, makes this smoothie! If you think you aren’t a fan of fresh ginger give it a try here – it’s just so good! You can start out with the tiniest amount and work your way up from there. I also toss in some apple cider vinegar for a little extra tang and a handful of fresh kale or spinach.
You can use whatever your favorite liquid is for smoothies – I tend to alternate between coconut water and almond milk. I love coconut water because it’s so hydrating. It’s perfect for these hot days we have been having!
This smoothie is the perfect snack to cool down with by the pool or after a day in the sun!
