Peanut butter is sometimes overlooked as a kid’s food but it is packed with nutrition and energy. This Peanut Butter smoothie takes advantage of that energy and nutrition in a tasty mix that is great an an afternoon snack.
Add even more nutritional goodness to this smoothie treat 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. You can order Chia seed directly from Amazon by clicking on the link in the recipe.
