Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie

Serves 1

You’ve said the way to your heart is through Peanut Butter & Jelly.  But one-too-many sandwiches and we’ll have to start calling you “Peanut Butter & Belly!”  Luckily, there’s a lightened-up version of your favorite treat—one that actually prevents the belly bulge.  Bursting with probiotic, Omega-3’s and fiber, the PB&J Smooth Move makes a healthy low-cal breakfast or protein-rich post-workout snack.

Ingredients:

1 C. low-fat, plain kefir

½ frozen banana

½ C. fresh strawberries, hulled

1 Tbsp. natural peanut butter

1 Tbsp. flaxseed oil

1 tsp. local honey

1 scoop whey protein (optional)

Directions:

Blend all ingredients until smooth.  Enjoy!

FOOD THAT LOVES YOU, TOO: The monounsaturated fats in peanut butter are extremely good for maintaining heart health.  A tablespoon a day can help to lower cholesterol and prevent cardiovascular disease.
