Apple cinnamon peanut butter smoothie
A satisfying smoothie that combines two of my favorite flavors – apples and peanut butter – and naturally sweetened with dates, this will get you through the morning!
I love the combination of apples and peanut butter. You know, to be honest, I love peanut butter with many other flavors, but my favorite snack is peanut butter with carrot and celery sticks and apples! I was sent a sample pack of various products from Crazy Richards Peanut Butter (website here) and offered to promote their brand through social media. So here we go!
I normally don’t like smoothies. If I want to have some calories, I’d prefer to eat them. Preferably peanut butter with a spoon just from the jar (ha ha!). But I was given a number of packs of this 100% peanut powder, where the only ingredient is … you guessed it … peanuts. I didn’t think I could go too far wrong with using this in a drink. And then I had seen a recipe for a pumpkin pie smoothie, using pumpkin puree, date, coconut milk and pumpkin pie spice and I thought to myself, I can adapt that and include some peanut butter. So I did. And I loved it. And if you make it, you will love it too!
