I know I know, back to back peanut butter recipes, but like I said once I start eating it I can’t stop and thus include it in pretty much everything I make.
FoodGawker Search of “peanut butter” brings up almost 3,000 results, so there exist plenty of ways of incorporating peanut butter into all of my meals.
After my run this morning I was craving a Green Monster – they are just soooo darn good. Naturally I used a peanut butter recipe for today’s and I must say I think it was my favorite Green Monster thus far.
Recipe from A Full Measure of Happiness
1/2 C soy milk
1/2 C water + ice cubes (3)
1 T ground flaxseed
1 T peanut butter (natural, creamy)
1 T carob powder
1 T chia seeds
2 handfuls fresh spinach
1 ripe banana, sliced
Throw into your blender and blend away. It makes between 2 and 2 1/2 cups of smoothie so I used my single serve blender – mixed everything but the spinach, poured half out, added half the spinach, blended poured into a glass and then did the other half batch. My single serve blender is a lot easier to clean then the big blender and doesn’t sound like a rocket launching off…and it’s cuter (:
