PB&J Protein Packed Smoothie

PB&J Protein Packed Smoothie

Okay. So I lied. There is no peanut butter in this recipe. Peanut butter is bad, well peanuts are. Therefor by the transitive property, peanut butter is bad. It’s all math n science y’all. Instead of peanut butter I used sunbutter… I’d argue that it is even BETTER than peanut butter. Better tasting and certainly better for you.

So I’m back to CrossFitting! It’s been a boring 8 weeks without CrossFit, but I’m baaaaack, and boy does it feel good!! And therefor I’ve been smoothie-ing it up! Man I missed smoothies. I usually workout in the AM on a (nearly) empty stomach. So I’ve been protein-shaking at the box post WOD, but when I get home I wanna eat.. but my schedule is GROSS and usually I have to go to sleep because I’m working overnight or something like that. So a large lunch(?) is not appreciated right before bed. Enter: protein packed SMOOTHIE.

Question: Why do frozen raspberries turn a purple color after they blend???

Serves: 1
Prep time: 5 minutes

  • 1 Cup frozen raspberries (2.5g protein)
  • 1 frozen banana (1.3g protein)
  • 1 Cup unsweetened almond milk (1g protein)
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed water soluble gelatin (6g protein)
  • 1.5 tablespoon sunbutter (5g protein)
  • *Optional: 1 serving of protein powder (~20-26g protein)

1. Add all ingredients into a blender or magic bullet. Add the gelatin last.
2. Drink up buttercup.

That’s a buttload of healthy natural protein! You can add your preferred protein powder to this concoction as well, I don’t because I have that separately. Again, I generally eat a smoothie when either I’m running out the door and don’t have time to cook, or when my schedule is a disaster.
