Almond Butter & Celery Smoothie | Raederle's Raw Recipe

I adore almond butter down the center of celery spines. The sticky texture of the nut butter is mellowed by the moist celery, and the stringy crunchy celery texture is enhanced by the rich nut butter. It's a wonderful complement. The result is more than the sum of its parts.
In a smoothie, I like them even better. This smoothie is particularly beneficial due to it's high levels of both naturally occurring sodium and potassium, allowing full cell hydration. Although I recommend it twenty minutes after exercise, not before. If you're having this before exercise, at least an hour should be allowed of rest for digesting.

Almond Butter & Celery Smoothie

Serves: 1 very hungry person or 2 marginally hungry people
  • 2 bananas (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 full celery ribs (also known as “sticks”)
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla powder
  • ½ cup drinking water (give or take)
Blend the above in your blender until smooth. I recommend blending the almond butter and celery until nearly smooth and then adding the banana. You may desire less almond butter, depending on your taste.

It is my pleasure to bring you this ad-free, completely authentic and original website. This entire site is a one-woman operation. I, Raederle, do the HTML coding, the writing, the photography, the artwork and more. Then you come along, view my work and make it all worth while.
Except that sometimes your viewership isn't enough. Sometimes a gal has got to get paid. So now I've set it up so that you can contribute a small monthly sum (as little as $1 a month) in exchange for getting exclusive, exciting, bonus content from me.
Patrons give me something priceless for a small price-tag: appreciation. Ever heard of the five love languages? It took me a while to realize this, but there is a different form of "gifts" as a love language, and it is called financial support. That's right – it makes me feel loved. I hope that isn't too much honesty for you, because my patrons read more personal admissions from me than that!
