This week, I wanted to try a smoothie inspired by my favorite childhood combo...peanut butter + jelly! I thought this would be a great flavor combo to use for a breakfast smoothie. I had also been wanting to try plain oatmeal in a smoothie because I'd heard it was really good, so I figured this was the perfect recipe to try it out on. What I ended up creating was the most delicious smoothie I have ever tasted. It was sweet, creamy, and packed full of protein and nutrients. The perfect breakfast to start your day!
- 1 banana, sliced and frozen
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 Tbsp peanut butter
- 2 Tbsp plain, uncooked oatmeal
- 3 Tbsp slivered, raw almonds
- 1 cup milk
- 1 Tbsp flax seed (optional)
- 2 to 3 squirts of liquid Stevia (optional, to taste)
I'm seriously having a blast making smoothies almost daily. They're a great meal replacement and a yummy way to incorporate a bunch of fruits and vegetables into your diet. These paired with clean eating have had huge impacts on my health already. I have so much more energy now than I used to, and I've lost 3 lbs! Yay!
Have you discovered any surprising smoothie/juice combos? Which ones are your favorite? xo, Mandy
