PB&J Breakfast Bowl

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! I literally wake up thinking about coffee and almond butter (it’s kind of help-worthy actually). I love food, but most foods don’t like me. Fortunately, I work at an organic farm on the weekends which has further encouraged my healthy diet and at-home recipes. I am a big fan of smoothie bowls for a filling, energy-boosting breakfast. One of my favorites tastes like a PB&J because I make it with PB2 powder and blueberries for a perfect combination.

Ingredient Insight:

PB2 is powdered peanut butter which means there is 80% less fat while still giving you about 5g of protein per 2 tablespoons.

Blueberries are stocked full of antioxidants and support a healthy heart.

Bananas are great for digestion and are high in potassium and B6.

Chia seeds are a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids and fiber.

Almond butter is high in protein and healthy fats without the high sugar content, molasses, and hydrogenated oils found in peanut butter.

Ingredients:

8oz Almond milk (1+ cups)

1/4 c PB2

1 scoop Vega Protein & Greens

1/2 Banana

1/4 frozen blueberries

Handful of ice

Toppings:

Almond butter
1/2 Banana
Chia seeds
Gluten free granola

Blend smoothie ingredients to a thick consistency (mine looks watery because it melted as I was taking pictures). You should be able to turn your blender upsidedown without the smoothie pouring out immediately. Scrape with spoon into a bowl and top with your choice of fresh fruit, seeds, nut butter, and/or granola!
