Peanut Butter and Jelly Breakfast Smoothie

I've been on a peanut butter kick recently, and by recently I mean the past couple of years. More specifically, I've really been craving PB&J.

I needed to make a quick breakfast before heading out the door this morning, so I decided to try and fill that PB&J void with a breakfast smoothie.

Here's what you'll need:

-1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
-3 tbsp creamy peanut butter
-1/2 cup mixed berries (I used blueberries and blackberries)
-1/2 cup ice
-1/2 cup fresh spinach
-1 banana

Instructions:

1) Add all ingredients to a blender and mix thoroughly. I tend to put the ice and almond milk towards the bottom to avoid the blender getting stuck.
2) Pour the smoothie into a glass, and enjoy!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Breakfast Shake

This weekend has been packed, and I knew that I had a full Sunday ahead of me. I wanted to whip up something quick but healthy...and also sweet. I had about 5 minutes before I had to run out the door, so I started throwing things into the blender, and that's where I came up with this delicious breakfast shake:

Here's what you'll need:

-2 bananas (I used fresh but you can use frozen to help with consistency)
-1 cup fresh spinach
-1 cup ice 
-1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-1/4 cup peanut butter
-2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Instructions:

1) Add all ingredients into the blender. I put the ice at the bottom so that it blends easily followed by the bananas, almond milk, peanut butter, and cocoa powder. I add the spinach once the blender is already on and combining the other ingredients, but you can do as you please.
2) Once the shake is the desired consistency (about 1-2 minutes), pour into a nice big glass and enjoy!
