Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie–without Protein Powder

Hello! I get a lot of requests for protein packed recipes without protein powder (I used to bake with it all the time). So, I whipped up a great breakfast (or snack) smoothie below.

First. I have a little challenge for you. Okay, it’s kinda for me but I’m inviting you to play too.

Seven Minute Stretch Challenge

I don’t stretch enough so I’m challenging myself to stretch for seven minutes every day this week. When I got back from my run yesterday I turned on the TV and randomly flipped past VH1’s Music Video morning fun.

Sam Smith’s Stay with Me was on and it’s perfect for some cool down stretching. That’s 3.5 minutes

And an oldie…

Now you’re all loose and chill and ready for breakfast and your day!!

I whipped up this Peanut Butter protein smoothie as part of a new partnership with the Peanut Board. I’m pretty excited since I’m already a big fan of their products wlEmoticon winkingsmile3 Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie–without Protein Powder

Blend and enjoy!

This is a great super quick breakfast or snack option because it has protein, healthy fat and whole grain carbs. Throw it in a mason jar for transport. #Boom

    Recipe looks great! I love having non-protein powder recipes. Protein powder is okay sometimes but I prefer real food.
    I didn’t stretch today, yet but I will. Went to my physio yesterday and got “the talk” on proper stretching.

    That sounds easy to make and super yummy!

    I’ll be stretching and foam rolling this evening after my bike ride. Just a short one after I pick her up from the bike shop. Need to make sure the tune up covered everything she needs for Ironman on Sunday =)

    I did stretch today! I typically have a really hard time squeezing it in, but today it just felt so good. It also ended with a bunch of peanut butter thrown on whole-grain toast. Yum!

    Yup but not enough; so planning on having an hour long stretch session with my trainer after work this evening.
    PB is my fav!

    I’ve made this two days in a row – yum! But I did notice it was a little tangy, but chalked it up to the yogurt. Finally realized… you meant one 6 oz yogurt, not 16 oz of yogurt. Yes, I had added that much. lol I will read more carefully next time.

      If I hadn’t seen your comment, I would have made it with 16oz of yogurt, too! I bought a 16 oz package today for this.
