Healthy Peanut Butter Smoothie

Super Peanut Butter Smoothie Recipe

The holidays are over and the New Year has begun.  What goals have you set?  Have you even thought about it yet?  Today is the First Day to get back into the swing of things for me.  My husband is back at work, the kids head back to school tomorrow but most of their friends are back today, schedules will start getting back to normal.

I normally start my day with a smoothies, I have been doing it for months and I have found that it’s a fabulous way to get in fruit, vegetables, and lots of goodness to get my day off to a good start.  If I start the day off right, my choices throughout the day happen to be better.

BUT, I haven’t day a smoothie regularly for about 1.5 months.  With family travel, the holidays, and everything else in-between I just haven’t had my blended goodness.  And TODAY I changed that.  It’s a New Year and I am dedicated once again to a New ME.  Better choices = results.

In less than 5 minutes I can have a meal that is filled with nutrition and makes me feel GOOD.  No more holiday cookies, no more peppermint bark, no more miscellaneous snacking because I never got around to actually eating breakfast.

Peanut Butter Smoothie

Today, I started my day with my Super Peanut Butter Smoothie.  As I was at Walmart last night getting the kids some staples for their school lunches, peanut butter, bread, cuties, etc., I made the decision to grab some staples for me too.  I got some fresh produce and Jif™ Peanut Powder.  I have always enjoyed adding peanut butter to my smoothies for the added protein, but the fact that Jif™ Peanut Powder has the same amount of nourishing protein as traditional peanut butter, but with 85% less fat had me grabbing for the powder!

It’s a great way to add delicious peanut taste to my daily smoothie with less calories and sugar.  And I don’t know about you, but I am all for LESS calories and LESS sugar!  In fact, Regular Jif™ Peanut Powder is made from just one ingredient – fresh roasted peanutsNo added ingredients that my body doesn’t need.

I put carrots and cucumbers in just about every smoothie I make, they are inexpensive and have little flavor, so they are easy to add to just about everything.  That being said, they are indeed in my Super Peanut Butter Smoothie.

When I think Peanut Butter, I think bananas.  So I added a half of banana in too.

Avocado.  Yes, I added avocado to this amazing smoothie as well.  Avocado is a Super Food and adds a creamy texture to your smoothie.

I will admit, I don’t have a fun explanation for the raspberries, I saw them in the store and they called out to me, so I bought them!  That’s the beautiful thing about smoothies, you can add what you feel like that day!

Here are the health benefits to the ingredients in this protein smoothie:

Carrots – The orange powerfood will give you vitamin A and is also linked to preventing cancer, giving you healthier looking skin and aids in digestion.

Cucumbers – These are great for rehydration. Cucumbers are also a great source of vitamin B, so that means they are a natural pick-me-up.

Avocados – Besides being loaded with the “good fat”, they help heart health, lower cholesterol and lower triglycerides. Plus, they make your smoothie extra creamy 🙂

Bananas – Besides tasting great, they are loaded with potassium which helps muscles recover and relax, and they have also been known to help you sleep better.

Raspberries – These beautiful berries are rich in vitamins, antioxidants and fiber.  They also have a high concentration of ellagic acid which has been said to help prevent cancer.

My favorite ingredient is the Jif™ Peanut Powder, the flavor added is peanut butter perfect and I don’t have to stress about the fat.  I used Silk Almond Milk for my liquid, which added another layer of creaminess.
