Peanut Butter and Strawberry Smoothie

Peanut Butter and Strawberry Smoothie

This Peanut Butter and Strawberry Smoothie uses powdered peanut butter which cuts down on calories without sacrificing that yummy peanut butter taste.

Peanut butter powder can be found pretty regularly anymore.  Some common brands are PB & Me, PB2, PB Fit and Honeyville.

Packed with protein this smoothie will jump start your day and make you feel like a kid again with it’s classic PB&J taste! I like making it after I work out. It is so yummy and makes me feel like I am eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

I use almond milk but you can use any kind of milk you like.  Fresh strawberries can be used as well, just throw in a few ice cubes.

Protein Packed Cashew and Banana Smoothie

Protein Packed Cashew and Banana Smoothie


This protein packed cashew and banana smoothie is a new take on one I usually make with almond butter that my daughter loves. It is super simple using almond butter, spinach, banana and almond milk along with a little ice fro blending.

With this months Whole Foods Ambassador theme being all about smoothies it only seemed fitting play around with the recipe. I wish to thank Whole Foods for supplying me with a gift card to purchase the ingredients.

I found this cashew butter at Costco and have fallen in love with it so I thought it only fitting to swap out the almond butter for the cashew. If you are not fan of cashews, you can certainly use almond butter, peanut butter or any other nut butter you like.

Adding the avocado adds essential healthy fats and makes the smoothy creamy. The protein powder boost the protein content. Any protein powder will work so feel free to use your favorite one.

Any chance to add greens to a smoothie is a great way to boost the nutritional content.

In addition to my recipe for this Protein Packed Cashew and Banana Smoothie there are some additional smoothie recipes from Whole Foods Market.
