Peanut Butter Jelly Time Smoothie

Do you put peanut butter in your smoothies?

I never used to because I thought it sounded weird but I have been converted!

Every time I make this, I always sing the peanut butter jelly song. Makes me so happy and then I get a yummy drink too.

If you have been following me on instagram, you know that I have been quite sick.

Living in a small town means that if one person gets sick, EVERYONE in the town gets sick! And my day job is in a coffee shop so I see a lot of people come in and out of the shop so you think that I would get sick that way… but no! My darling Alex always picks up the sickness and then I get it after I’ve been looking after him. Plus side is that then he has to look after me.

The downside of being sick is that you really just don’t want to eat.

For me this time, I lost all sense of smell! Not sure if you know but 70-90% of your taste comes from the aromas that you can smell. So basically I couldn’t taste anything. Definitely made eating less enjoyable because my food looked SOOOOO good and tasted like nothing {insert sad face here}

 

Thankfully I am on the mend but this means that I need some nutrients and extra energy to keep me going. Enter the smoothie….

This one has raspberries which are high in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Folate, Manganese and fibre.

Oats for B vitamins and some more fibre for keeping you regular and full.

Plain yoghurt for calcium, a protein punch and some gut loving bacteria.

Protein powder for added protein to maintain muscle mass, as well as being a complete protein source.

Peanut butter for protein, and some fat for satiety (feel satisfied).

And finally cinnamon because I like the flavour and it helps to maintain blood glucose levels.

 

If you are looking for a smoothie that tastes like dessert and is nutrient dense, this is the way to go!

Have a great week!
