Peanut Butter Heaven: Healthy Smoothie that Tastes like a Milkshake

I think peanut butter is a gift we are not worthy of. Sometimes I just have a craving for something sweet, salty, and creamy. This smoothie makes me feel like I’m drinking a milkshake when in reality I get a ton of protein, potassium, and energy!! My two go-to smoothies are this peanut butter heaven and a green (but actually good) smoothie. Check out this link for my green smoothie: Go-to Breakfast Smoothie #1: Green, but actually good

I use the ninja blender with the single serve cups and it was the greatest investment of my life. It comes with two single serve cups and the big ninja blender/food processor crossover. I use it for cooking, baking, sauce making, and everything else you can imagine. It is one of my favorite kitchen tools. I got mine on Amazon, see the link below if you want one for yourself! For protein, I have tried and tested a bunch of vegan proteins and finally found VegaSport Vanilla. It doesn’t have that sickly sweet fake sugar taste, but somehow gives all my smoothies just a touch of sweetness and vanilla flavor. I use it in every smoothie and a lot of baking treats as well. If you want to get some, I order mine on Amazon, see the link below and make sure to look for coupons on Amazon as they are usually 30-40% off for your first purchase.
