This weeks smoothie is amazing and full of flavour. You can use either crunchy or smooth peanut butter, it’s totally up to you. It’s high in protein which is good for maintaining a lean physique, it’s also high in healthy fats. Fats provide a sustained energy source, so it’s great for breakfast as the energy from the smoothie will last longer.
Week 6 | The Peanut Butter Smoothie
Whilst I was buying my peanut butter, I compared different brands so I could choose the one with the lowest sugar count. Although there is sugar in it, there’s also fibre which is another great health benefit.
Flaxseed is another great ingredient as it’s high in protein and also in omega 3 fats. It’s also high in fibre, vitamins and minerals. You can add flaxseed to any smoothie if you prefer and also on your morning cereal.
If you’re running late in the mornings, you can make this smoothie a great breakfast substitute by adding a 1/4 cup of protein powder. I use vanilla sometimes for added flavour.
