Okay so I have a confession to make. I’m not proud of it but… Back in the day, I just really wasn’t that ‘into’ peanut butter. There. I said it. Don’t judge me. There was just something about the thick claggy, stick to the top of your mouth texture that I just COULD NOT stand. Trust me, I attempted to be up with the trend, the ‘lifting girls’ on instagram that “can’t wait to eat a whole tub of peanut butter” #cheatday #peanutbuttergains and all that. Nope, couldn’t do it. I tried it on toast, on celery, on apple, with chocolate…nope, not doing anything for me. Then something magical happened.
I had just done a HUGE workout, I probably should have gone straight to the shower with my sweat drenched clothes and beetroot red face, but food was on my mind. I was about to do the usual scoop of protein in the shaker, but decided I wanted a little more flavour today. I grabbed the protein powder out of the cupboard and bam, the peanut butter caught my eye. Maybe, just maybe it might work. I mean, I love the taste of peanut butter it’s just the texture that makes me squirm. I hesitantly added peanut butter to the concoction of honey, banana, almond milk and protein powder and this smoothie was created in all it’s velvety, peanut buttery glory. It is now an absolute favourite of mine, so much so that I made an awesome step-by-step video to absolutely make sure you try it for yourself! The perfect breakfast, lunch or post-workout snack to keep you fueled throughout the day!
