Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie

Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie

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 quite a few things – apples, celery, toast, sandwich, bananas – haha, you get the picture.

Protein shakes just happen to be one of the best things to add peanut butter to!

Especially when the base of the protein shake is chocolate because chocolate and peanut butter go together like peas and carrots. Like Jenny and Forest. Lol, I’m lame I know.

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 shakes.

Just two little tablespoons of peanut butter can have up to, or more than 200 calories, and I like to try and keep the calories of these babies down so that I can enjoy it like a treat instead of 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. Cuz there are definitely times, like right after my workout, or for breakfast, that I am in need of all those extra calories.

However for this recipe, I used the good ole stand-by, peanut flour or PB2. Peanut flour has the same amazing taste and flavor as regular peanut butter but without all the extra calories.

Plus, it blends up just as well and you wouldn’t even know it was a powder when you’re drinking the shake.

This shake comes out luxuriously creamy and rich, thanks to the addition of a half banana and tastes almost like a dessert for breakfast (or whatever meal/snack you’re having it for).
