Recipe Notes

Its getting warm outside and that means smoothies are making more of an appearance! While I love a good smoothie, I find that many of my clients do not choose a balanced smoothie. What do I mean when I say balanced smoothie? I mean a smoothie that will keep you full and provides nutrient dense ingredients. Many smoothies are packed with Sugar! You guys know how I feel about sugar. When clients ask about smoothies, I tell them the best thing to do is to make your own smoothie, this way you have control over exactly what is in that smoothie. It might take a little bit more time, but your body will thank you!

Peanut butter and Jelly Smoothie
  1. 1 -2 cups of coconut milk or almond milk (choose unsweetened vanilla if you like sweeter smoothies)
  2. 1 tablespoon of Flaxseed 
  3. Handful of organic spinach
  4. 1-2 tablespoons of Peanut butter- make sure the only ingredient peanut butter , I like Santa Cruz organic dark roasted. You may also substitute almond butter or cashew butter for the peanut butter.
  5. 1 teaspoon of xct oil (coconut oil, I like bulletproof)
  6. 1/2 cup of strawberries
  7. Protein powder of choice: I like primal kitchen collagen peptides or if you want to make this a chocolate peanut butter smoothie, use a chocolate protein powder. I recommend Paleo Pro ancient cacao. If you are vegan or just want to limit  animal products, chose a pea protein or add hemp seeds. 
  8. 1/2 cup of ice 
  • Step 1: Add your spinach and liquid into smoothie first 
  • Step 2: Add remaining ingredients
  • Step 3: blend
