Growing up did you pack peanut butter and jelly for lunch? Me too!
PB&J is a classic combo. I've updated the classic PB&J into a delicious smoothie you will LOVE if peanut butter and jelly is your jam.
When making a smoothie I make sure to always add protein, fat, and fiber for a satisfying meal that turns off hunger hormones. I'm extra so I usually sneak in some veggies as well. My go-to veggies are spinach, zucchini, cauliflower, carrots, pumpkin, sweet potato, and BEETS.
Did you know that beets can improve your athletic performance?
magnesium and folate to boost your metabolism
nitrates to boost endurance and physical performance
fiber to keep your digestive system running smoothly
can help reduce inflammation
can help lower blood pressure
Beets also make smoothies pink so you could sneak veggies into someone's smoothie without them even knowing, not that I would ever do that...
Beeterbutter Berry Smoothie
1 cup milk of choice
1 tablespoon chia seeds (can substitute flaxseed or hemp seed)
3/4 cup of roasted then frozen chopped beets
1 cup of frozen strawberries or mixed berries
2 tablespoons peanut butter
Add ingredients to a blender and blend till smooth and creamy. Add water or milk as needed to get things moving. If your beets are not frozen then reduce the liquid to keep it thick and creamy.
