Summertime is Smoothie time around my house! Whether it's a delicious tropical blend or refreshing fruit and veggie infused drink, there's nothing better than a tall, cool smoothie on a warm summer day. Except, of course, maybe another!
With summer just around the corner and smoothies on our mind, we thought today we'd focus on one of our most amazing smoothie ingredients. No, I'm not talking about our delicious smoothie mixes (though they are very tasty). I'm speaking about one of the most important ingredients you can add to any smoothie -- Peanut Butter Powder. Yes, that's right, Peanut Butter Powder!
Peanut Butter is a healthy source of protein, vitamin B3 and fiber and, in powder form, dissolves perfectly into any shake or smoothie. Plus, our all new Organic Peanut Butter Powder has just 1 gram of fat per serving and 90% less fat than traditional peanut butter. That means you're getting a healthy, low fat boost to any shake or smoothie you're whipping up. How can you pass that up?
Today, we thought we'd focus on the perfect summertime recipe using our Organic Peanut Butter Powder. It's so perfect, in fact, that you can find it printed right on our packaging, under the title "Chunky Monkey Smoothie." Today's version has a bit of a twist on it, using our tasty Freeze Dried Bananas. Grab your favorite blender, it's time to create a Peanut Butter Powder Smoothie!
1 3/4 cups Almond Milk, divided
2 cups Honeyville Freeze Dried Bananas
2 Tbsp Honeyville Organic Peanut Butter Powder
1 Tbsp Honeyville Baker's Cocoa Powder
1/2 cups Ice
Soak Bananas in 1 1/4 cups almond milk until soft.
Pour bananas, remaining almond milk, peanut butter powder, cocoa powder, and ice into blender.
Blend until smoothie has a thick but smooth consistency. Pour into cup and serve.
This smoothie is packed full of all the chocolate and peanut butter flavor your heart can handle! Smooth, thick, and with the perfect consistency, this shake will leave you satisfied without all the guilt. That's because there's no added sugar! Serve this up for a quick after-workout protein boost, or just to cool down on a sunny day.
Summer is about smoothies, and thanks to our Organic Peanut Butter Powder, no smoothie has ever tasted so good!
