PB&J Smoothie

a delicious antidote to new year's excesses

Hubs thinks I’m weird for liking nut butter in a baked sweet potato.

But I maintain that nutty and sweet is a time-honoured, delicious pairing that works in all its various incarnations.

Like this smoothie.

research has shown that organic rasps have a significantly higher antioxidant content than conventional, so splash out if you can

I’m not actually using peanut butter, because I prefer the healthier nut butters (less aflatoxins!) but you can easily customise this to your own taste.

We’ve just returned from our winter sojourn up to Canada and all I want to do is eat/drink smoothies and juices.

I’m not gonna lie, it got pretty carby up in the cold north so now I’m atoning for sins perpetuated against my belly.

This smoothie was a good start.

PB&J Smoothie (makes about 4 cups)

  • 1 1/2 cups coconut (or regular) milk
  • 2 cups raspberries
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seed butter
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tbsp maca (optional, but makes it extra nutty!)
  1. Blend all the above together until smooth.

NB: If you want it extra cold and chunky, like a kiddie-friendly thick milkshake, chop up one banana and freeze it before blending with the rest.
