Smoothies are a favorite warm/hot weather beverage at my house. We drink them for breakfast, snacks, swimming team practice, etc. We have old favorites and are always willing to try new ones. Today, I am trying two new ingredients in my smoothies. Peanut butter powder and chia seeds. I have been seeing peanut butterpowder in the stores and have read different recipes using it. It sounds interesting. Chia seeds are my latest health kick. I am using them every way I can think of. Oatmeal, smoothies, our favorite juice - I just add 1 tablespoon chia seeds, stir and let sit for 30 minutes, soy milk, - you get the idea.
In this recipe, I used both peanut butter powder and chia seeds. Note: I let the chia seeds soak in the soy milk for about 30 minutes before I made the smoothie. Like all smoothies, I put everything in the blender and gave it a whirl. Again, another incredible smoothie. Rich, creamy, with a very light nutty flavor.
