Peanut Butter, Please

I accidentally bought crunchy (ew) peanut butter and opened it before realizing it. Bummer, right? Wrong. Crunchy peanut butter is great for smoothies- it adds the perfect amount of texture. Here’s my recipe (ok I may have stolen it from my sister) to a quick and easy PB protein smoothie that’s perfect for when you’re running late to class. Or when you’re too lazy to make dinner.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons of crunchy peanut butter (or creamy if you didn’t mess up like I did)
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla flavored protein powder
  • 1 banana
  • soy milk
  • 1 cup of crushed ice
  • cinnamon
  • blueberries
  • honey or agave
  • chia seeds

Prep

Add all the ingredients to a blender. I usually eyeball the soy milk so that’s all on you. Sprinkle some chia seeds and add a dash of cinnamon. I usually add about eight to ten blueberries and drizzle a small amount of honey (or agave) on top to sweeten. Blend that sh*t together and pour it in your cup of choice. Voila! A lazy girl’s dinner (don’t worry guys, we won’t tell anyone you’re skipping out on a #gainz meal) that’s packed with protein, omega-3, and deliciousness. I made this for dinner, but this is also a great option for breakfast on the go!

 

Happy blending,
