Picking up where we left off… the weekend was filled with good friends, food, and fun. On Saturday, our
friends family Brett and Beth visited for the first time in what seemed like forever. We went to the Bear’s new favorite restaurant, Ruth’s Chris Steak House. The steaks are cooked to perfection and we definitely indulged in some amazing food.
Aren’t the mugs below the cutest!? They were a gift from Brett and Beth. Love getting new blogging props!
Before the Bear and I headed out for a bike ride on the beach Sunday morning, I made a PB&J smoothie. Peanut butter and jelly is one of my favorite combinations. PB&J sandwiches are my favorite for breakfast, and as some of you may know, I tend to eat it start from the jars.
One morning while I was running, I came up with the idea for a PB&J smoothie. I was craving something cold (hello summer!) and a PB&J sandwich at the same time. This weekend I decided to test out my idea and it turned out really good!
- 1 cup mixed frozen berries (I used blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries)
- ½ cup vanilla almond milk
- ⅓ cup old fashioned oats
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and enjoy!
The peanut butter adds protein to the smoothie, while the oats add fiber. You can blend the peanut butter into the smoothie or add the peanut butter on the top of the smoothie. I actually prefer it on top because you will get chunks of peanut butter which makes the flavor more prominent.
While this smoothie may have more calories than other smoothie due to the peanut butter, the calories kept me full until lunch.
This PB&J smoothie would also be perfect after a hot summer workout!
