1.) Get out your 6 simple ingredients and throw ’em in a blender. If you put the softer ingredients in first and the frozen in last, everything will blend much smoother.
2.) Blend until creamy. If you want to make your glass look fancy, heat some peanut butter up and drizzle it on the inside of the glass, then pour in your smoothie!
PB&J Smoothie (Prep Time: 5 minutes, Total Time: 5 minutes, Serves: 1)
Surprise surprise, I put peanut butter in another recipe! I’ll admit I was a little skeptical about putting peanut butter in a fruit smoothie at first, but I quickly changed my mind. The peanut butter adds a really nice nuttiness that is not too overwhelming, it’s not like you’re just eating a spoonful of peanut butter. (Although I do that all the time and it’s great.) In addition it adds an extra level of thickness, and in my opinion the thicker the better;) This is a great breakfast recipe because it’s filling and full of protein, but it doesn’t sit in your stomach like a brick. If you’re not a peanut butter fan, almond butter is also pretty tasty, and I assume other nut butters would do the trick too. If for some reason you’re a nut hater, this recipe still tastes good without the nut butter.
2/3 cup unsweetened greek yogurt
1 ripe banana
6-7 frozen strawberries
2 tbsp peanut butter
1/4 cup almond milk or regular milk
1 tsp honey, maple syrup, or 1 date
*Note: you can use frozen strawberries, or a frozen banana. Just make sure at least one of the fruits is frozen.
1: Place all the non frozen ingredients in the blender, then put the frozen ingredients on top. Start blending on low, then increase the speed and blend until smooth and creamy.
2: Drizzle a glass with a touch of warm peanut butter, or just pour it in and enjoy!
