I remember when I first started working out with my trainer. She put me on a verrrrry clean meal plan (which I need to be better at sticking to, especially after Europe)! I had a really hard time at first. I am more of a savory person so I didn’t expect myself to miss a little something sweet as much as I did, but I suddenly had a major craving for sweets. And so she turned me onto the Peanut Butter Split smoothie at Juice Generation. It’s become my favorite. Either I will stop at Juice Generation on my way home from a workout or make this as soon as I get home. Note that Alex recommends having this right after you work out, as a meal... and preferably before 5pm (I’m not supposed to have carbs after 5pm when I’m sticking to my plan. The best time to have carbs is right after a workout. I typically work out with her around 10:30am and then have this for lunch at noon.
- One cup milk of your choice (my favorite is coconut milk)
- One frozen organic banana
- One scoop protein powder (I love this one)
- 2 Tbsp. organic Peanutbutter (I love Justin’s)
- 3-4 ice cubes
Blend it all in a high-power blender* and you’re done! So so yummy, and so healthy!
*This Vitamix is my favorite! The to-go smoothie container is fantastic and the smaller size is great if you live in a smaller space like I do. It’s much smaller than the original but just as effective.
