It’s a new year and I’m so excited for 2016! With the new year comes the usual resolutions, often involving losing weight and/or eating better. It may be cliche but that’s one of mine. Thankfully I didn’t wait till January 1st to start going to the gym; working out has been part of my routine for a long time. Ever notice how the gym is crazy packed early in the year? I got one of the last few available bikes in my cycling class this morning due to the many new faces.

Another part of my routine has been breakfast smoothies. Often fruit (and even some veggies) plus a protein powder is my go to breakfast. It keeps me nourished and full all morning, plus it’s easy to prep. Less empty calories for breakfast means it’s easier to enjoy food the rest of the day. This Blueberry Peanut Protein Smoothie might be a new favorite of mine.

A simple mixture of almond milk, greek yogurt, oats, banana, blueberry and Jif™ Peanut Powder. I dare say it’s like drinking a peanut butter and jelly for breakfast!

I’ve used other protein powders in my smoothies, but was excited to try this peanut protein powder. It has the same amount of nourishing protein as peanut butter, but with 85% less fat; that means all the peanut butter taste with less calories. It’s made from just one ingredient, fresh roasted peanuts, and without added sugar – a good way to fuel your day and stay on track with New Year’s resolutions.

This protein smoothie is also beautiful and a natural in front of the camera. I wish all my recipes were this photogenic. A vibrant (almost fluorescent) purple from colorful blueberries creates an appealing peanut breakfast smoothie. I’ve heard the more colorful your food is, the more fulfilling it is. This is just from a visual perspective, however colorful foods are commonly more nutrient rich anyways.

Enjoy this Blueberry Peanut Protein Smoothie as perfect start to your day and the new year. One serving has 25 grams of protein, 88 grams of (complex) carbs, 15 grams of fiber, and only 6 grams of fat; all with less than 500 calories of naturally sweetened goodness.

Cooking Tips: How to get the perfect thickness in a smoothie, without using ice

This protein smoothie recipe has a ratio of ingredients to create a perfect thick smoothie. I find equal parts frozen fruit to liquid, plus an equal amount on non-frozen fruit or yogurt is the ideal ratio.

Be sure to freeze fruit once it reaches ideal ripeness, or buy frozen fruit. This way you’ll always have ingredients on hand for your breakfast smoothies.
