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!
