Amaranth Fruit and Nut Butter Smoothie

Since I have learned about Amaranth and the benefits we have been using in many recipes including our smoothies. 

I love using my Ninja blender!  I will be making this smoothie on Better Connecticut, Thursday, February 26th (my son Steven's birthday) and one lucky audience guest will be going home with one!  How exciting is that..   I just love giveaways...
