My Secret Smoothie

 I am not an avid fruit/veggie eater.....and I honestly just don't make the effort.  I always buy them, cut them up for my kids, but rarely choose to eat them for myself as a snack.  I prefer to drink my fruits/veggies.

I get sick of smoothies after days of having them.....UNLESS every single smoothie tastes like a peanut butter milkshake!  That is something that I don't ever get sick of!

I was going through jar after jar of Almond Butter....until my husband found out about this powdered peanut butter!  I have no idea how they do it...but they manage to crush peanuts into powder...remove most of the fat....and make it taste amazing in your smoothie!   PERFECT! I use PB2 and you can read up on it here.

I generally use one big spoonful of the peanut butter powder, any frozen fruit that I have at the time, a handful of spinach or kale, and coconut flavored water. (I also use almond milk from time to time, but in the summer I think it is too thick.  It does taste more like a milkshake when I use the almond milk though)

Turquoise rimmed glasses, and now I am thinking of adding a few of these to the mix

I have been using this blender for years and I honestly lOVE that it has different cups because I can make my kids smoothies with milk, and I don't have to worry about it mixing into my drink.  I have been contemplating making the switch to a vitamin, because I picture myself making smoothies, soup, hummus, guacamole, and more smoothies.....but I just can't seem to make the jump!  I actually received one from my mother in law for Christmas a few years ago...and my husband and I thought it was too nice of a blender for us!  Now I want to poke myself in the eye for not keeping! 

I am a creature of habit and rarely change up my smoothies...but I am up for some new recipes if you have any!!!!!



  1. I just discovered PB2 also and have been using it in my Shakeology shakes. I can't wait to make one like you suggested. Like you, I never get enough fruits and veggies in my day to day. Thanks for sharing!

  2. "Just Good Stuff" is also great and even better for you!! We always use powdered PB in our smoothies and Shakeology.

  3. We loveeeee pb2! And that smoothie looks delish!

  4. Have you tried the PB2 with chocolate?? I love putting that in my smoothies!
