Protein smoothie made with peanut flour to help curb calories while still giving you all the delicious peanut butter flavor you crave.
Peanut butter is an all time favorite food for me. I can seriously put peanut butter on just about anything and it will taste better. Well, maybe not just about everything… but at least a few things. Protein smoothies just happen to be one of those things!
Of course regular peanut butter, albeit good for you, has a ton of extra calories in it that I usually don't like to add to my protein smoothies. I try and keep the calories of these babies down so that I can enjoy it but without it being a full meal… more like a snack. However, there are some times that I throw that logic out the window and go for the full fat, creamy goodness of regular peanut butter. But for this recipe, I used the good ole stand-by, peanut flour or PB2.
Peanut flour has the same amazing taste as regular peanut butter but without all the calories. Plus, it blends up just as well and you wouldn't even know it was a powder. This smoothie comes out luxuriously creamy and rich and tastes almost like a dessert for breakfast (or whatever meal/snack you're having it for).
