I've been in a very berry-licious mood lately. I find when it comes to smoothies, frozen berries are always best so I was happy enough to buy a large bag of frozen raspberries. The thing I like about raspberries are the seeds. I know some find the seeds annoying especially blended in a smoothie, but it's nice because it feels like you're eating the smoothie instead of drinking it.
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1/2 a pear
1/2 frozen banana
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 scoop brown rice protein powder (vanilla) - optional
Stevia to taste
Water to blend
I've been seeing chocolate peanut butter around a lot lately and it's a shame because I always wished there was carob peanut butter, just this once, for those not into the cocoa thing. Well I took matters into my own hands and made "chocolate" peanut butter using carob and stevia! It tastes so good like Reese's peanut butter cups!
The peanut butter I used was Valencia peanut butter which tends to be more "liquidy" than regular peanut butters so it worked great to achieve a smooth, peanut buttery consistency.
