The gym has been open for almost two weeks now and my body is loving every minute of it. I’ve never been very motivated to work out at home, but physically going to the gym pumps me up and pushes me to exercise even harder. Since, I work out in the mornings, I’m always whipping up an easy post-workout breakfast to replenish my muscles with protein, fats, and vitamins. This Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie is my absolute favorite!
Whether you need a recovery meal or not, this smoothie is rich, creamy, and honestly the best flavor combo out there. It’s made with a ripe banana, almond milk, Greek Yogurt, peanut butter powder, chia seeds, and a dash of cocoa powder to maximize your protein, potassium, and calcium intake with a good dose of omega-3 fats to give your body an extra boost of energy!
You’ll notice I’ve made some purposeful choices in certain ingredients: almond milk, Greek Yogurt, and peanut butter powder. I don’t recommend trying to substitute any of these except for the milk. Here’s the “why” behind today’s smoothie lineup:
Of course, don’t forget extra toppings! I always slice up a fresh banana, drizzle some salty peanut butter on top, and sprinkle on mini chocolate chips. If you’re still hungry, I recommend a hearty slice of avocado toast or a fried egg on rice cake to serve on the side!
