Peanut Butter Recipes For The Family (Plus Fido)
If peanut butter is your jam; if you think it’s a little nutty, but still love it anyway; if you heard the rumor about peanut butter, but don’t want to spread it (stop us, someone?), these following healthy peanut butter recipes are for you! At Cabot we’re just as obsessed with the spreadable stuff as you are—crunchy or smooth.
We love that peanut butter can work in every dish: from breakfast to dinner, sweet or savory, and it’s even something special you can give to the pups in your life! For this reason, we have so many different healthy recipes with peanut butter to recommend. Here are some of our most favorite:
Peanut Butter Smoothies:
Chocolate-Peanut Butter-Banana Smoothie
This nutritious and delicious treat includes milk, Cabot Lowfat Vanilla Bean Greek Yogurt, chocolate syrup, peanut butter and banana. Bonus: each sip packs potassium and protein!
Nutty Monkey Protein Smoothie
This one’s for the kids: Blend up peanut butter, honey and banana for a healthy before-school breakfast for your crew. They’ll go bananas for it!Featuring blackberries and Cabot’s Lowfat Greek Yogurt, this recipe calls for almond butter, but we say: swap in peanut butter! It also makes just one serving, so if anyone else is around, you’re gonna wanna increase the recipe so you can all enjoy it.
