The new year means a new me, and most importantly, it means it’s time to fit into my wedding dress! Since my wedding is this year, my diet and lifestyle are more important to me than ever.
I mentioned in yesterday’s post my love for smoothies and how I’ll be incorporating them into my daily routine to meet my weight loss goals, so today I’m going to share another smoothie option for you DIY’ers out there.
This peanut butter banana oatmeal smoothie makes for a great meal replacement option or mid day snack.WHAT YOU NEED:
1/4 cup steel cut oats or rolled oats*
1 cup Silk almond milk
3 tbs Jif peanut powder
1 tbs honey
1 whole banana
1 handful ice
Blender (I highly recommend this one for smoothies)
To give the peanut butter banana oatmeal smoothie a crunchier taste, use steel cut oats. For a smoother texture, use the rolled oats.WHAT YOU DO:
Cut entire banana into small pieces for easy blending. In a blender, combine oats, peanut powder, banana, honey, almond milk, and ice.
Blend until all ingredients are finely chopped, ensuring the oats are ground smooth to a powder form.Serve peanut butter banana oatmeal smoothie in a glass and top with oats or granola.Regardless if you’re trying to use smoothies as a meal replacement option to meet a weight loss goal, or just simply want to bake a dessert, Jif peanut powder that can be found at Walmart is a great option.
It has the same amount of protein as traditional peanut butter, but with 85% less fat making it a great way to add a peanut taste with less calories and sugar.
Are you working towards weight loss goals this year? Will you be using smoothie ingredients to meet those goals? Feel free to share, I can always use some inspiration!
