Flax Power Protein Smoothie

With warmer weather approaching, a go-to smoothie is a must. As much as I love my fruity smoothies like my Strawberry Kale Smoothie, I also love creamy, nut butter filled smoothies. That’s why I developed this energy-boosting smoothie filled with protein-packed ingredients like peanut butter, ground flaxseeds (also called flaxseed meal), and greek yogurt.

This Flax Power Protein Smoothie is filled with the perfect mixture of protein-packed ingredients like peanut butter, ground flaxseeds, and greek yogurt. Customize it to your liking with ingredients of your choice.

I am a peanut butter fanatic and eat it on the daily. Whether it’s in my morning oatmeal or blender hummus— I love how versatile and affordable this ingredient is. When buying peanut butter, ensure it does not contain any hydrogenated oil or added sugars. The only 2 ingredients on the nutrition label should be peanuts and a small amount of salt.

The banana works as the primary sweetener in this smoothie but if you are looking for it to be a touch sweeter, feel free to add a date or two into the smoothie for a natural sweetener. I like to use dates in my Protein-Packed Banana Bread to add the necessary sweetness without any added sugars.

Flaxseed is another powerful ingredient added into the mix. You can consume the seeds themselves, but I like to eat them ground for easier digestion. They are a great source of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and fiber. My favorite, convenient way to purchase ground flaxseeds has been on Amazon through a company called Healthworks. Healthworks mission is to provide great products to health-conscious people at affordable prices. You can buy a hefty supply of ground flaxseed, along with other nutritious ingredients, on Amazon here.
