Scorched Peanut Bar Smoothie… is it a dessert or breakfast. It is breakfast but it tastes like a treat!
Although the flavour of this smoothie reminds me a lot of the old-fashioned chocolate bar you can be confident it’s hitting the mark nutritionally. Also, breakfast smoothies are a great idea for breakfast you can eat on the run!
Optional Protein Powder
This healthy smoothie recipe uses vanilla protein powder for an extra nutritional boost. If you don’t like using supplements, simply omit the protein powder and add a teaspoon of vanilla paste to get the same delicious flavour. Please note, this will change the nutritional profile of the smoothie.
The protein powder I use is from X50 Lifestyle. It’s the Vanilla Ice-cream protein powder from X50 Lifestyle. I chose this brand because it’s low in fat and sugar and higher in protein than most powders. It includes 25% RDI of essential vitamins and minerals and 2.5g of fibre. That is way more bang for your buck than most protein powders. It also dissolves well in liquid and has an equally good mouthfeel (and combines well) in Carrot Cake Bliss Balls. Finally, it can also be used in baked goods.
How to Serve your Smoothie
The scorched peanut smoothie is delicious served straight from the blender or Thermomix. If you would like to make it a little fancier or a little more sustaining, try adding some of these toppings.
- 1 Tbs Steel Cut Oats
- Dusting of cinnamon
- 1 tsp cacoa nibs
- Dusting of raw cacoa powder
- Additional slices of fresh banana
- Sprinkle of roasted coconut
- Sprinkle of additional chopped peanuts
Don’t forget to take the nutritional values of the added toppings into consideration.
