Peanut Butter Coconut Breakfast Protein Smoothie
This is one of my go-to breakfast smoothies and it’s so easy to make! I even love making it post workout for some extra energy.
If you’re allergic to nuts, you can substitute the peanut butter for sun butter instead. I was actually allergic to peanuts for 30+ years and my pregnancy 4 years ago actually reversed my allergy (we’ll save that story for another day).
Begin by pouring 1/2 of the coconut milk into a blender. Add the handful of fresh dates to the blend. Place the lid on the blender and turn it on. Make sure the dates are well blended or you will end up with chucks of dates in your smoothie.
Next, add the heaping spoonful of peanut butter (I use about 1/4 cup) into the blender. Place the lid on and turn the blender back on and mix the ingredients together.
Once the above ingredients are well blended, add the ripe banana and remaining coconut milk to the recipe. Put the lid back on the blender and blend the ingredients together.
Finally, add the crushed ice to the mixture and blend together. Pour smoothie into a glass and enjoy!
