Are you still keeping up with your New Year’s Resolutions? It’s HARD!!! But made a little easier with yummy, protein packed breakfasts like this Chocolate Peanut butter Smoothie Bowl and Mini Zucchini Quinoa Frittatas.
I was doing awesome with my exercising goal and then I got a super bad cold and it completely threw off my groove. Don’t you hate getting sick?! I had my whole week’s “to do” list planned and then WHAM! Zapped of all energy and what I did have was used to keep my kids alive. Thankfully I’m like 85% better so it’s back to working out and eating healthy.
Like most people, I too am crazy about all thing peanut butter and chocolate. Cookies, cake, Scotcheroos… I’ll eat anything with chocolate and peanut butter.
And no, it doesn’t have protein powder. I was going to put it in but who needs expensive (and not so tasty) protein powder when you’ve got Greek yogurt?!
Greek yogurt is packed with protein. It contributes 18 grams of protein in this smoothie and then when you add the peanut butter you’re already up to 25 grams! Wahoo! A tasty and affordable high protein post workout smoothie. Now you can build up those muscles and still get your chocolate and PB fix all before 9am!
Of course, if you’re in a rush you can swap out the bowl and spoon for a cup and straw. But, if you’re going to chillax and read (or watch Netflix) while you eat, you might as well pour your smoothie into a bowl and top it with all the yummy goods– a little chopped up chocolate, fresh banana slices, and crunchy granola.
Oh and for some extra pizazz, melt some peanut butter in the microwave and drizzle it on. Dig in and enjoy!
Tools used to make this Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl:
Wolf Gourmet Blender– This blender is amazing! It a power house that can blend anything. I love it and use it for everything from smoothies, to soups, to dressings.
KitchenAid Blender– If you’re not ready to commit to a high power blender, this one is great! This one served me well in making smoothies and pureeing soups and sauces for 8 years.
Measuring Cups– I love these measuring cups! It has every single size measuring cup and spoon. I can’t stand sets that don’t come with 2/3 and 3/4 cups!
