How It Works

My Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie

Peanut butter and jelly is a classic flavor, but most peanut butter is full of sugars, and the jelly is even worse. While it's not exactly a pop tart, it's still a long way from a balanced breakfast. The good news is, this delicious smoothy takes out all the artificial sweetness and fills your glass and your belly with the satisfying taste of PB&J. The peanut flour is an excellent source of protein, without all the sugars found in traditional peanut butter, and the fresh fruit packs plenty of sweetness all by itself.

Instructions

1. In a blender, blend Greek yogurt, milk, extract, and strawberries. Blend well till smooth.

2. Add in the peanut flour and ice. Blend completely. Give it a dash of Tabasco. Serve or store in the fridge.


What You’ll Need

  • 1 cup full Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of strawberries
  • Ice
  • Splash of Tabasco hot sauce to taste

Story

I love smoothies, who doesn't? They're quick and simple, perfect for a breakfast on the go, or a quick snack to pick up my energy in the middle of the day. But smoothies can't replace a meal, right? Sooner or later that mid-day craving's going to hit, and then your hard work and dedication to health go out the window. But what if it didn't have to?

I created this yummy recipe that proves it is possible to fill up on a breakfast smoothie, and the secret is protein. It's the protein that helps me keep me energy level up, and keeps me feeling full, which means I never feel the need to snack. I don't need to resort to expensive protein powders or filler, either. There are plenty of ways to get my fill of protein in my smoothie, from spinach to nut milk, even adding tofu into the mix.

I'm not really in the habit of suggesting diets. But if you're looking to get healthier, try my fav smoothie that will fill you up and keep you energized all day.

By the way, you don't need to add the Tabasco; I personally like a little 'kick' to my smoothies ;)
