I wouldn’t recommend this Healthy Peanut Butter Smoothie recipe to anyone who is on a strict diet. Low calorie it isn’t! But the recipe is still healthy and is a good choice as a lunch replacement or a hearty snack.
You can also turn this Peanut Butter smoothie treat into a real 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 taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
In your favorite blender mix:
- 3 Tbsp. Creamy Peanut butter
- 1 cup uncooked oatmeal
- cup milk (soy, 2%, whole milk, its your choice)
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Ice to taste (about a cup or less)
- Optional: 2 tbsp. chocolate syrup
