Happy first Monday of 2016! We made it through the weekend, mostly in one piece, and now’s the time that the majority of us (myself included) are kicking bad habits to the curb in lieu of making this year our best yet. First up on my #NewYearNewMe agenda is getting my butt back into shape. Low carb life isn’t as bad as I originally thought it would be, but the one thing that’s still holding me up a bit? Breakfast. Enter JIF Peanut Powder and this Peanut Butter Power Smoothie recipe to save the day.
My go-to breakfast up until last week was peanut butter toast with honey (thanks Grandma). It was quick and easy, and I ran through making it almost like clockwork. When I was out shopping for groceries at WalMart last week I picked up this JIF Peanut Powder to help make my breakfasts as easy as they were before my low-carb life.
Best part about this powder? It’s just that: peanut powder. No added salts or sugars. Even better than that? It still has all the protein of your regular peanut butter, BUT with 85% less fat making it it the perfect addition to whatever you’re cooking up in the kitchen.
- 2 chopped frozen bananas
- 1/4 cup of blueberries
- 1/2 cup spinach
- 1/2 cup kale
- 3 tbsp. JIF Peanut Butter Powder
- 1 tbsp. water
- 1 tsp. chia seeds
- 1 cup Silk Almond Milk
- Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.
- Top with additional bananas and blueberries (if desired).
- Additional Silk Almond Milk can be added to thin out smooth to desired consistency, or if you like your smoothies thicker add the almond milk 1/2 cup at a time until you reach the consistency you like.
Now that you’ve got the recipe, head over to Walmart to pick the powder up for yourself. Then let me know your thoughts on how the smoothie turns out.
