I know that I have already posted my peanut butter chia smoothie, which is Dr. Miller's favorite breakfast on the go. But I have really been enjoying the low fat peanut butter smoothie lately, so I thought I would share the recipe and video so that everyone can enjoy this delicious smoothie. I will mention that I use a defatted peanut powder in all of my recipes that take on a peanut butter flavor. I really love how versatile peanut powder is in baking, cooking and especially smoothies. This peanut powder contains 80% less fat than regular peanut butter, which is great for those of us on a high carbohydrate/ low fat diet who have always had an affinity to nut butters. I know I will get asked if you can substitute a regular peanut butter or almond butter in this recipe, and the answer is you most certainly can. It just won't necessarily be a low fat smoothie if you decide to use a full fat nut butter. I really love making this smoothie for mornings that I don't feel like making much after eating my breakfast celery or on mornings that I have got to be out of the house and on the go in a hurry. If you go ahead and give this recipe a try, let me know what you think and share a picture on my facebook page of how it turned out for you.
Here's what you will need!
1 1/2 cup of a plant based milk
3 tbs defatted peanut powder
2 large frozen bananas (2 1/2 small)
Place all of the ingredients into a blender/ food processor/ blender bottle
Blend on a medium-high speed for 10-45 seconds until a smoothie consistency
