Strawberry & Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie.



It’s been a bountiful strawberry season for our garden.  Huge bowls of strawberries are being filtered into my kitchen daily.  So after my run this morning, I thought I would whip up a breakfast smoothie for my girls and I thought a peanut butter &  strawberry (a take-off of pb and j) would be a fun.  My girls loved it and drank them down in record time.  Packed with fruit, which provides necessary vitamins and energy, protein for muscles – its a great way to start the day.  A lower calorie option would be to replace the peanut butter with dried peanut butter (4 tablespoons) to reduce the fat/calories.

Makes 3 smoothies.


2 overripe bananas
3 cups or more of fresh strawberries
1/4 cup of creamy peanut butter or whatever nut butter you like
8 ice cubes
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
1 cup of milk – or more if you need to thin the smoothie out more.  I used almond milk.


Into your Vitamix or blender, add all of your ingredients.  Blend until smooth.  Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
