It is a whole new year! New goals, new excitements, new adventures! I am so excited to tackle what this new year has in store. I have the freshest new hope for what can be accomplished this year. One of my hopes is to get out more. Bike rides, hiking trails, running.. you name it! I want to dive into being active outside of the gym. I am a gym rat with a foodie’s heart. I enjoy food immensely. It is the most delicious fuel! And that is exactly what I am sharing today; a delicious blueberry banana peanut protein smoothie that uses Jif Peanut Powder. It will fuel your body for all of this year’s new adventures!
One thing that I gravitative toward, when I do not have a lot of time on my hands, is a smoothie. You can pack a big punch with a smoothie, both in nutrients and flavor. I am a sucker for anything chocolate or peanut butter. ESPECIALLY peanut butter. When I have a hankering for something scrumptiously peanut butter, I turn to Jif peanut powder. It has all of the familiar rich flavor of creamy peanut butter, without all of the fat! I popped into Walmart the other day and picked up some Jif Peanut Powder for baking and smoothie making. There are other peanut powders out there but I prefer Jif over them all. It has no added ingredients ( salt + sugar ). It is simply roasted peanuts.
I try to eat as cleanly as possible. No preservatives. No added sugar. No added salt. Certainly no added ingredients that I cannot pronounce! I have used peanut powder for added flavor and protein in baking and smoothie making for quite some time. It is a great go-to for flavor that makes you feel like you are indulging.. minus the guilt. Hallelujah for that!
( sweetened, unsweetened, or flavor of choice )
You can have fun with this recipe. Jif also has peanut powder with a touch of cocoa so if you are craving that chocolate and peanut butter combo, that is a great option. The dark chocolate Silk Almond Milk would kick this recipe up a notch as well! If you prefer a more true peanut butter flavor stick with Jif’s plain peanut powder!
Okay, now it is your turn! What smoothie flavors do you love? What smoothie combo would you make with Jif peanut powder? Tell me all about it in the comments!
