These Smoothies are promised to keep you hydrated during summer for your great weight loss goal!

We begin to cut down our favorite foods and drinks in order to get a better progress on our weight loss goal. Due to this, we switch our food cycle to a lot of carbs, beans, vegetables, berries, and fruits. However, as time goes by on this mission to weight loss our taste buds seem to be bored of the same food types repeated over and over every single day. Which is why we have put together some great alternatives that would boost your taste buds and still keep you on your track to weight loss.

PB & J Smoothie (Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein smoothie)

If you are a fan of classic childhood sandwich, then you will love this recipe for sure. It is a little bit salty-sweet smoothie than you can slip in through a straw. Blended with frozen berries, with all natural only peanut butter, vanilla protein, rolled oats and soy milk helps to create this protein-packed smoothie with tons of excess calories. However, some of us are not fans of soy milk, which is why there is an alternative where you can use any unsweetened milk that you prefer. This will not alter the taste or nutrition profile all that much.

  • 1 tablespoon all-natural peanut butter
  • 1 scoop vanilla bean, designer whey sustained energy
  • 2 tablespoons rolled oats
  • 1 cup soy milk

  • Add all ingredients together in blender and blend it until smooth, then use a strainer to get rid of unblended ingredients
