PB & Blueberry Smoothie

Blueberry_smoothie

As kids one of our favorite meals was peanut butter and jelly–and our mom could hardly get us to eat anything else!  After all what kid (and grown kid, for that matter!) doesn’t love a delicious PB & J sandy?  Breakfast, noon or night, it makes a great, healthy meal.

This smoothie makes a fabulous breakfast and is a twist on classic peanut butter and jelly–so it’s super satisfying!  The blueberries are antioxidant powerhouses and the yogurt provides protein to keep you feeling full and to keep your energy on even keel.  The blueberries also act as an anti-inflammatory (among many other benefits, this helps to keep the skin calm–flare-up free, woohoo!) and their fiber helps to keep you feeling satisfied!  Goodbye mid-morning snacking–yes, although this smoothie is light and refreshing and great for the waist and the thighs thanks to being fairly low in calories, it will keep you satisfied!  Sign us up PB & B Smoothie, please! 🙂

MORE BONUSES: This scrumptious smoothie is hydrating and a great source of potassium which helps to restore fluid balance and prevent muscle cramps while aiding in muscle contraction. You also get a dose of vitamin C, as well as a carb and protein combo to help repair muscles and tissues and aid in recovery after exercise–and give you an energy boost.  AND the calcium will keep your skeleton strong.  The peanut butter rounds out this yummy smoothie with more satisfying protein and heart healthy fat.

Note: As with the other two smoothies we recently shared that you told us you love (thank you! :)) Ginger-nana Pineapple Smoothie and our Skinny Strawberry Sunrise Smoothie , if you would like this smoothie slightly sweeter, add an extra teaspoon of honey or some stevia.
