Hi Everyone, Happy Monday to you!
Let me ask you a question. Do you dread Monday’s? Do you get tired quicker on this day? Do you get the Monday Blues? Well I have a cure for you. Something, that will give you pep, something to make you smile and something that will make someone else smile if you decide to share. Let me show you what I have for you.
This is the cure for the Monday Blahs! Let me introduce to you my Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie!! This smoothie has protein, energy, vitamins and nutrients, not to mentions tastes AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you’re a fan of the famous peanut butter and jelly sandwich, then this is the smoothie for you. It’s made with non-fat milk, 2 tablespoons of the best healthy fat ever, peanut butter, greek yogurt and my personal favorite berry, strawberries!!! This is one of my best smoothies I have ever made in my opinion, however I am kind of bias since it contains peanut butter!
My lovely step-daughter who eats the worse food ever, I’m not kidding about that, was getting ready for work, and I know her, she probably didn’t eat and would end up eating pizza at work. So I made this smoothie, poured it in her travel cup and said drink this at work. She said fine and out the door she went. The next morning she asked, was that a peanut butter and jelly smoothie? It tasted just like the sandwich and it was really creamy smooth. Yupper Doodles it was!! She said she loved it and loved how sweet it was. Ha ha no sugar in this drink. :) I thought this smoothie is way healthier than the pizza and the candy she would end up eating at work. Plus this smoothie will fill her for hours and the protein boost will give her much-needed energy at work. I’m glad I could giver her something nutritious, since she needs all the nutrition she can get. I couldn’t even tell you what the last vegetable or fruit she ate and french fries and strawberries and cream frappuccinos from Starbucks don’t count!
