Peanuts. PB2. Greek Yogurt. Banana. Chia seeds. Honey. Vanilla. Almond Milk. All used to make a creamy, dreamy oh so smooth Peanut Lover’s Breakfast Smoothie! Great way to start the day!
Keeping with the peanut butter theme this week guys!!
When I was editing these pictures, I realized this smoothie looks almost identical to my Banana Almond Breakfast Smoothie I posted back in January….except it tastes wayyyy different, believe me!
If you’re a cool kid and follow my blog, you know I have a breakfast smoothie nearly everyday! They’re a breeze to make, addicting, and satisfying on multiple levels.
I’m a morning person and I NEVER skip breakfast. My stomach is always begging to be fed ASAP, therefore I usually eat within minutes of waking up! Literally. I remember when I was younger…heading straight to the kitchen right after I woke up and having a giant bowl of sugar smacks or lucky charms…still half asleep. The only thing that has changed now, is that bowl of cereal has morphed into a smoothie!
Peanut butter always seems to be on my mind, so I wanted a smoothie that was focused solely on peanuts.
No chocolate. No fruit. Just all that yummy peanut flavor!!
A frozen banana and plain greek yogurt is the base of this smoothie. Greek yogurt is packed with protein, which I opt for instead of protein powder. I also added chia seeds for additional protein and fiber. Instead of regular peanut butter I used PB2 (which I talked about in my last post – Peanut Butter Examination.) To save on some calories and also because PB2 is perfect for smoothies since because it comes in powder form so you don’t even notice a difference!
Whether or not you are a morning person, you should really be filling your body with nutritious fuel to start the day!! Take the time guys or plan ahead. Even if you aren’t making a smoothie, eat something. I really do not get people that skip breakfast. Or really any meal for that matter.
Here’s the recipe, Enjoy 🙂
Peanut Lover’s Breakfast Smoothie
- 1 Frozen Banana, sliced
- 1 C. Plain Greek Yogurt
- 2 Tbsp. PB2 (or 1 Tbsp Regular PB)
- 1/2 Tsp. Vanilla extract
- 1 Tsp. Raw Honey
- 1/2 Tbsp. Chia Seeds
- 1/2-3/4 C. Almond Milk (or any kind)
- 1 Tbsp. Peanuts
First place sliced frozen banana in the bottom of the blender. Add everything but the peanuts. Start with only 1/2 C. almond milk. Begin to blend. Add more milk if necessary until reached desired consistency. Throw in a few ice cubes if you want it thicker. Right before the smoothie is completely blended, throw in the peanuts for a few seconds. I put them in at the end so there are still peanut chunks, my favorite part! Serve immediately.
