Hi, friends! I’m so excited to have Erin of The Almond Eater sharing a guest recipe today. Erin has always inspired me with her more-than-delicious food and unique recipes. Her creativity never fails and I guarantee her photos will make you drool. 

Take it away, Erin!

Hi The Blissful Balance readers! How’s it going? I’m Erin, author of the blog The Almond Eater, where I share quick and healthy 30 minute recipes. Todayyyyy I’m sharing a 5 (!!!) minute recipe that also has coffee in it.
Do I have your attention now? Excellent. I don’t know about you, but I absolutely require a cup of coffee every morning. Even on mornings when I don’tthink I need it, I do. While I love a regular ole cup o’ joe, throwing coffee IN a smoothie is a simple way to pack in more nutrients and keep you fuller longer. Sounds like a win-win to me!
Espresso Almond Butter Smoothie
This recipe was actually inspired by one of Christina’s recipes–her Vanilla Espresso Cashew Butter.
I knew I wanted to make a smoothie, and I knew I wanted it to have coffee in it, but I wasn’t sure what else. Then I remembered her brilliant recipe and viola–that’s how this bad boy was created.

You can use her homemade cashew butter or any store bought cashew, OR almond butter. I actually had almond butter on-hand so that’s what I ended up using, but either would be delicious (because almond butter+espresso AND cashew butter+espresso=amazing).

    This sounds so yummy. I’ve heard of putting instant coffee in my smoothie but I haven’t tried it yet. I’ve actually been off of coffee since February but I’m starting to think that I need it back in my life. And that I need this smoothie in my life.

    I can’t wait to try this! I love coffee flavored everything. Plus, this gives me my morning jolt of java with my usual banana nut butter smoothie combo — two birds & one stone! And that Vanilla Espresso Cashew Butter, OH MY!
