PB&J Smoothie

Since the beginning of October I've been on a serious smoothie kick, drinking up to two per day. Typically I have a smoothie for breakfast and lunch (M-F) then my regular dinner along with two small snacks. I love how much better I've been feeling energy wise plus losing inches in my waist has been a huge bonus. I'm pretty much hooked on smoothies, for me they are the perfect easy breakfast and lunch. I buy bananas and spinach fresh and all the other fruit frozen (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, pineapples, mango and cherries) For the protein in my smoothie I use either Greek yogurt, Almond milk, Fat free milk or Vanilla Protein powder. Here's one of my go to morning smoothies 

PB&J Smoothie 

What you'll need

2 Cups of Strawberries (frozen or fresh)
1 Banana
2 Teaspoons of Peanut Butter
4 Ounces of Non Fat Greek Yogurt 
(Greek yogurt makes the smoothie crazy thick so I use half yogurt & half milk)
1/2 - 1 cup of Ice 




When I'm blending my smoothie I always throw in my liquid first (milk, almond milk or yogurt) then I add in my fruit, peanut butter and lastly ice. This smoothie is super yummy and crazy thick. Most of my smootie recipes come from the book The Body Reset Diet and Pinterest! 

I hope you try this smoothie and better yet enjoy it!

Have you been making smoothies? What's one of your favorite recipes?

  2. That sounds like something my daughter would love! My daughter loves peanut butter, I don't care for it at all. That's one fact about Germans like myself, no limey limey peanut butter. My son is like me and my daughter LOVES it. Funny how tastes are so different in the same household.
