Peanut Butter Berry Smoothie

It is a new year and a new semester at school for me. Today is the first day back to school and unfortunately back to busy mornings. It is also a Monday, which aren’t my best days anytime of the year!  🙁  I don’t even want to think about the line up at the bookstore I need to stand in later this afternoon.

When you are making an effort to make better food choices, mornings can be really tough. A berry smoothie is my favourite quick and easy breakfast or snack. We make a lot of smoothies in my home! When I was asked to incorporate Jif Peanut Powder into a recipe I knew I would make a peanut butter and berry smoothie.

I find that adding protein to my smoothies keeps my stomach from growling by 10 am. The Jif Peanut Powder has as much protein as traditional peanut butter, but with 85% less fat – which is a good thing!

Note to self: When I eat like crap, I feel like crap.

I would typically put a tablespoon of peanut butter in a berry smoothie this size, so I used the same amount of the peanut powder.  The Jif Peanut Powder has just one ingredient – fresh roasted peanuts – so you don’t have to worry about any extra sugars or salt.

I have a full sized blender, but I used my Magic Bullet for this recipe.  Either would work though. In my recipe I used frozen fruit, but if you are using fresh fruit you will need to add some ice to the recipe that I have included below. If almond milk isn’t your thing, you can substitute regular milk or yogurt.

I picked up the Jif Peanut Powder at Walmart. It is where you find the peanut butter and other spreads. They also have Jif Chocolate Peanut Powder, which I bought but have not tried yet. It is the same but contains semisweet chocolate and a dash of sugar. Chocolate and peanut butter together is my weakness!

I can’t even reach the top shelf at the store. #shortgirlproblems

In case you missed them, check out my other smoothie recipes.  There is a Coconut Strawberry Kiwi Smoothie and a Tropical Mango Pineapple Smoothie. If you are looking for a different way to incorporate a smoothie into your diet, you can try making a Strawberry Banana Smoothie Popsicle or a Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl. All are super easy to make and so good!

I hope this first Monday of the year is not too tough on you! Have a great week.
