Me and peanut butter are like this:      (you can’t see them, but my fingers are entwined). We had a brief breakup after I returned from studying abroad since we saw a little too much of each other in England when I was poor (that exchange rate hurts) and ate a lot of peanut butter sandwiches. But that separation didn’t last long and now I’m older and wiser; I know that absence makes the heart grow fonder. But it’s not easy to exercise restraint, especially when it comes to these Strawberry Peanut Butter Smoothies.

In my opinion, the best tasting smoothies have peanut butter in them. They also have the added benefit of keeping you fuller for longer. Win win.



2 cups milk (organic, if possible)

3 Tbsp peanut butter

1 cup frozen strawberries

1 frozen banana

1 cup spinach

2 Tbsp cocoa powder

2 Tbsp honey

1 cup ice cubes


Combine all ingredients (except ice cubes) in a blender and blend until smooth. Then add ice cubes and blend again. Pour into four glasses (or two big glasses) and enjoy!
