You guys know I love my peanut butter and I share a lot of peanut butter recipes here at Running on Real Food. Well, lucky for me I’m teaming up with Adams and today we’re sharing an easy and crazy delicious Peanut Butter Mocha Smoothie. Love coffee? Love peanut butter? This smoothie is for you!
Adams x Running on Real Food
Adams has been featured twice already on Running on Real Food, once with these Mini PB Oat Cups and a PB Oat Smoothie and again with these No-Bake Fruit and Nut Balls. Today I’ve added their delicious, natural peanut butter to an amazing, mocha-flavoured smoothie that is sure to energize your day!
Peanut Butter Adventures
Spring weather has arrived in Vancouver and I know it’s just around the corner for the rest of Canada, that means it’s time to get back outside and start enjoying the great outdoors! Whether it be a long bike ride, a hike with the family or maybe an outdoor workout at the park, you can fuel your adventure with Adams 100% Natural Peanut Butter. I plan on adding more hikes to my list of favourites this year! We’re so lucky in Vancouver with hundreds of incredible hikes located near the city.
The natural upside of Adams is that it provides Canadians with an honest-to-goodness delicious taste that is 100% natural. That means no trans fats, no preservations, no hydrogenated fats, no stabilizers and no added sugars – that’s the upside of natural! Adams 100% Natural Peanut Butter is simply made with peanuts and just a dash of salt, making it a healthful ingredient to use in home-cooked meals or just enjoyed straight from the jar! (I know I’m not the only one!!)
Peanut Butter + Coffee For Everything
You guys know I’m super active and always on the go. Adams 100% Natural Peanut Butter makes that possible as a natural and convenient snack option. Whether it’s a spoonful between work and the gym, added to my morning chia seed oatmeal, scooped into a smoothie or as an ingredient in homemade protein bars, Adams Peanut Butter always helps keep me energized for my active lifestyle.
Some of my favourite snacks include a banana sliced in half and topped with Adams and sprinkling of hemp seeds, dates stuffed with Adams and raw pepitas or sliced apple and peanut butter sprinkled with cinnamon.
Peanut Butter Mocha Smoothie
Now that I’ve officially professed my love for all things Adams 100% Natural Peanut Butter, it’s about time to share this incredible, super-charged, high-protein smoothie recipe with you!
This smoothie features all my favourite smoothie ingredients: coffee, peanut butter, frozen banana and vegan protein powder! If you want to amp up the nutrition you could always add superfoods like spinach, spirulina, hemp seeds or chia seeds to the mix. I sometimes even add a teaspoon of turmeric, which seems a little odd but you can’t taste it and it has wonderful anti-inflammatory properties. And the frozen banana is the key to creamy smoothies so don’t skip that part!
This smoothie is ready to fuel your next hike, or long training run, a tough morning spin class or just a busy day at work. I could barely believe how good it tastes, the hint of peanut butter with coffee and banana is unreal!
- 1-1.25 cups brewed coffee, start with 1 cup, add more to adjust consistency to your preference, I think my smoothies super thick so I can eat it with a spoon!
- 2 tablespoons Adams 100% Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
- 2 small or 1 large frozen banana
- 1 scoop vanilla or chocolate protein powder
- 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
- ice to reach desired consistency (optional)
- Add all ingredients to a blender and mix until smooth and creamy.
- Pour into a glass and enjoy!
