Often considered to be a “bad” food – peanut butter is high in calories, but that’s because it’s packed with the same healthy monounsaturated fats as olive oil.
Used in moderation and unsalted, peanut butter is great for adding some legs to a smoothie. It will help fill you up and get you through the day.
It also adds a unique taste that kids like. You can often use it to hide stuff they might not be so keen on (cabbage anyone?).
It obviously blends well – you can use smooth or crunchy. Put in crunchy near the end – to leave little peanut buttery crumbs.
