Whole Foods Nutty Monkey Smoothie Copycat Recipe

Whole Foods Nutty Monkey Smoothie

  • Author: Mallory Austin


Bananas, almond butter and blueberries pair perfectly to create this delicious and fulfilling smoothie. It’s fruity without being too sweet with lots of nuttiness!


  • 1 cup almond milk, unsweetened vanilla
  • 3/4 cup frozen blueberries (Whole Foods uses frozen Wyman’s Wild Blueberries)
  • 1 cup frozen banana chunks
  • 12 tablespoons natural almond butter
  • Optional: Vanilla protein powder and/or Collagen Peptides
  • Optional: 1/2 cup crushed ice


  • In a blender, add all of the ingredients in the order they are listed (starting with the almond milk and ending with the ice).
  • Blend on high to ensure the ingredients are smooth and fully combined. I usually do two passes on my Ninja “Smoothie” setting.


I usually keep ziplock bags full of frozen banana pieces in my freezer at all times. As soon as I get the bananas home from the store, I break or cut them into 1-2 inch pieces and through them into a baggy. This way they are always ready to go! If they get stuck together, just give the bag a good whack.
