Once upon a time, I hated smoothies. In fact, I hated all drinks other than water. Why? No idea - I suppose it was a phase as I used to love them - but one day I decided that smoothies and any liquid thicker than water made me feel sick.
So I steered clear of smoothies - for months, years, I don't even know how long - until one day I was making popsicles and I scooped up the last of the mixture with a spoon. It was, essentially, a smoothie - and from there I was hooked.
Lately, I've been obsessed with smoothies. Not for meals (girl needs carbs) but for snacks - and a delicious snack they are. We've been experimenting with different combinations, flavours, add ins and we're constantly coming up with new favourites.
This Blueberry Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie (which I'm shortening to Chocolate PBerry Smoothie) is one of our current favourites - and Jesse's absolute favourite. He thinks it tastes just like peanut butter, but I think it tastes more like chocolate - so if you make it, be sure to tell us what you think!
Chocolate Blueberry Peanut Butter Smoothie serves 1
1 cup Unsweetened Almond Breeze
1 cup Blueberries
1 tsp Cocoa Powder
2 tbsp Peanut Flour or Peanut Butter
Place all ingredients into a blender.
Blend until smooth and pour into a glass.
Today marks two years since I have eaten gluten. It's hard to believe that I haven't eaten it for so long after years of eating it - but I am so grateful that I found out I was a coeliac.
I feel better than I've felt in at least 5 years and I can't tell you how amazing that is. Your health is so, so so important - so make sure you look after yourself!
But tell me, loves, what is your go-to snack right now?
