Many consider smoothie just a refreshing fruity drink, but the smoothie is more than just that. It’s a wholesome, quick and very healthy meal. If you don’t overload it with added sugars off course. I’m quite a FAN of smoothies. I usually make one in the morning, pack it in my smoothie bottle and drink throughout the day. When I’m making my smoothies, I’m always looking to use fresh seasonal ingredients and to make smoothie well-balanced. So my smoothies are usually loaded with fibers, healthy fats, and proteins. Like the smoothie, I share today with you.
This Apple Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie is quite simple but packed with good stuff, all natural ingredients, refined and added sugar-free.
For making this smoothie, I used a fresh apple, banana, (homemade) peanut butter, oats, and spices – cinnamon and vanilla. As a base, I used ice cold water, but you can use milk – plant based. It’s well known that apple and banana go perfectly with peanut butter. This combo is one of my favorites. And if you add to that combo fragrant spices like cinnamon and vanilla than this smoothie story turns into a real yummy fairy tale.
Peanut butter is the great source of unsaturated (healthy) fats, fiber, and proteins, and is an excellent source of a whole range of vitamins and minerals. Precisely because of the substantial content of healthy fats and protein in peanut butter, I eat peanut butter for breakfast or when I need a quick energy boost during the day. I make my own peanut butter at home primarily to avoid hidden added sugars and fats that can be found in store bought products. If you however go and buy peanut butter in the store, then I suggest that you always check the labels and choose the product that has the highest content of peanuts and has no added sugars, fats, or additives. Look for 100% pure peanut butter.
This Apple Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie is super sweet but has no added sugars. It’s naturally sweetened with ripe banana. Banana is also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals that we need throughout the day, and it’s full of fibers that are good for our digestion. This smoothie is very nutritious and can replace the standard morning meal. It’s best to drink it fresh, and if you plan to drink it during the day, store it in a glass jar with a good lid. I usually drink half of smoothie in the morning and the rest I bring to the office and have it as a snack. It’s also great as after workout meal, or wholesome kids school lunch.
