Mmmm…. Peanut Butter!
Looking for a new protein smoothie to fuel your workout routine? You’re going to love this delicious, healthy, lean muscle-building peanut butter smoothie recipe that’s sure to satisfy.
First off, peanut butter offers an amazing natural source of energy. This makes it a great option for either pre-workout or post-workout nutrition, when your body needs to fuel up and replenish its resources.
Definitely aim for all-natural peanut butter, rather than the highly processed stuff that is loaded with extra sugar and salt. Going with the all-natural, 100% peanut option is an easy way to make peanut butter a healthier ingredient in your diet plan. It’s also more in line with a whole foods diet, which is the best approach to any fitness goal.
I’ve also included a few plant-based ingredients to improve your vitamin and mineral support, and to boost your antioxidant intake. This is another way to refuel and replenish after a long hard workout.
Okay, let’s get to the recipe…
My Ultimate Peanut Butter Smoothie Recipe
This is a quick and easy recipe that you can throw together in just a few minutes. Grab your blender and the following ingredients:
- ½ cup of unsweetened almond milk (or milk alternative)
- 1 scoop of Gaspari Nutrition Myofusion (milk chocolate flavor protein is ridiculously delicious)
- 2 tablespoons of low calorie PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter
- 1 handful of fresh baby spinach
- 1 medium sized ripened banana
- ¼ cup of water
- ½ cup of ice cubes
Throw everything into the blender, and blend on high until smooth and creamy. This is a tasty, satisfying, and healthy recipe that will totally boost your metabolism and help you build lean muscle mass.
If you need an alternative to peanut butter, go with 100% natural almond butter like Buff Bake Almond Butter. It’s a bit more expensive, but equally energizing.
You can also add a teaspoon of natural honey if it’s not quite sweet enough for you, and the chocolate protein powder can definitely be switched up with vanilla flavor for a twist.
