Peanuts are a great plant source of CoQ10 – which is used in your mitochondria to power your metabolism. This is a delicious smoothie that uses PB2 – powdered peanut butter. Powdered peanut butter is defatted peanut butter, so there’s no significant source of fats. Not that I’m EVER against the healthy fat in peanut butter, but sometimes it’s nice to have the PB flavor and protein, and then get the healthy fat from another source, like the unsweetened cashew butter in this protein shake. Cashew butter gives it that “cookie bomb” status:)
4 ounces unsweetened Almond Milk
2 tbsp PB2 (powdered peanut butter)
2 tsp raw cocoa powder
1/2 ripe banana, frozen
1 tbsp unsweetened cashew butter
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
Everything goes into a high-powered blender and pulse until it’s fully combined.
