My kids are always rushed to get out of the house in the morning and breakfast is not on their top list. I also often forget to eat breakfast until much later, as I too am trying to rush everyone out of the house. This means I needed to come up with an easy, yet high protein breakfast smoothie that would peek their interest in getting downstairs a little earlier. The other great thing about smoothies is that they are portable but I am not willing to tell the kids that just yet. These swirled high protein smoothies are made up of my kids favorite flavors, peanut butter and chocolate. How can you say no to this! Protein is key, as the kids need the extra boost to get them thru the school day and I can use it for my morning workouts or tennis matches. Nothing worse then getting to the gym realizing you forgot to eat something. The ingredients in this delicious smoothie recipe create that better for you smoothie you have been looking for.
Peanut Butter Chocolate High Protein Smoothies
My secret ingredients for this high protein smoothie recipe are: Jif Peanut Powder, Oikos (Vanilla) Triple Zero Greek Nonfat Yogurt, Almond Milk and a little chocolate syrup. With 85% less fat than traditional peanut butter, Jif Peanut Powder is great for smoothies, baking and more! I used Jif Peanut Powder in these amazing high protein brownies and high protein Peanut Butter Banana Muffins before and the kids had no idea they had the extra protein burst. The Regular Peanut Powder has no sugar added, making it a better choice. Oikos (Vanilla) Triple Zero Greek Nonfat Yogurt is Possibly the perfect protein snack™ Unlike some other protein snacks, it has 0 fat, 0 added sugar* and 0 artificial sweeteners – plus 15g of protein per 5.3oz. *not a low calorie food
Ok we have talked enough about the ingredients now let’s make this swirly goodness.
Start with making the chocolate smoothie, which we used as the bottom layer. You don’t have to make two layers but I thought the kids would get a kick out of it.
Blend all the ingredients together with some ice.
We added a little chocolate syrup to get a stronger chocolate color for our swirl.
Fill two glasses half-way with the chocolate mixture, then make the peanut butter layer. ( I put the glasses in the freezer while I made the second layer)
Top off the two glasses with the peanut butter layer and swirl a little chocolate sauce on top to get the kids attention.
All you need are some straws and a few minutes to enjoy this boost of protein. Why just serve this high protein smoothie recipe for breakfast, kids would enjoy this as an after school or sport snack to tide them over until dinner.
