How to Make a Low Carb Almond and Blueberry Shake
Add fresh blueberries, unsweetened almond milk (I prefer the vanilla flavors) and unsweetened creamy almond butter to a blender jar and use a stick blender to blend until smooth. You could also use a blender but I think the blueberry skins are finer with a stick blender (hand blender, immersion blender – whatever you want to call it!)
Note: Have you tried making your own homemade almond butter?!?
If you *did* want to add some extra sweetness, I'd recommend something like a tablespoon of either homemade simple syrup or Da Vinci Vanilla Sugar Free Syrup (you could even try the blueberry flavor!) – they're both zero carb and you shouldn't need very much!
The shake is refreshing yet thick and creamy all at the same time.Low Carb Almond and Blueberry Shake #lowcarb #sugarfree Click To Tweet
