Peanut butter is healthy when used in moderation and Agave nectar is a great substitute for honey. So, when used together in a Agave nectar smoothie along with other pretty traditional smoothie ingredients, you end up with a really different and really tasty treat.

Its also easy to turn this unique smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a noticeable taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.

In your favorite blender mix:

1 Tbsp. Peanut Butter (all natural is best)
2 Tbsp. agave nectar
1 cup mixed berries (either fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup milk (soy, 2%, etc.)
1 Tbsp. Chia seed
Ice to Taste
