One of my favorite ways to start the day is with smoothies! They are so easy to make and perfect for the whole family.
I love the smiles I get when I give my kids a smoothie like today’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie. I let the kids think I’m giving them dessert for breakfast all the while feeling good about giving it to them.
Of course, smoothies are great any time of day. I love a protein packed smoothie after my workout, and they also makes a great afternoon snack for the kids. (And this smoothie packs a whopping 20grams of protein a serving!)
Lately, I’ve been powering up our smoothies with Jif™ Creamy Peanut Butter and Dannon Vanilla Lowfat Yogurt.
I pick them up at Walmart.
I love that Jif is the perfect combination of creamy and the fresh-roasted peanut taste I love. I was so excited to learn that it is non-GMO and gluten free. With seven grams of protein a serving, it helps us get the protein we need.
Dannon Yogurt is made with natural ingredients and delicious by itself or with toppings. I love using it as a substitute in baking recipes!
A great blender makes whipping up smoothies so simple!
If you do not own a blender or need a new one to replace your wedding present you received 15 years ago, check out this Oster® Blend-N-Go® MyBlend®. You can just fill, blend & go!
This smoothie is so easy to make.
Just add the milk to your blender.
And then add the flax seed and cocoa powder.
Add Dannon Vanilla Yogurt.
And then Jif Creamy Peanut Butter. Blend it all together and then add ice to taste! So easy!
