Today I’m sharing the Superfood Peanut Butter Smoothie Recipe I’ve been making the last few weeks.
I’ve been making the same smoothie every single morning for 7 years, so it was time to change things up, lol. The formula is similar (will always be a Fab 4 smoothie girl), and I’m using the same grass fed chocolate protein powder from Be Well By Kelly (more on that in a second). BUT, I switched out the fruits and veggies and am using a new collagen powder that I love.
I swapped out the spinach for cauliflower and microgreens. And for fruit I’m doing a little banana and blackberries. I realized that it’s good to switch these out every now and then–you know, micronutrient diversity and such. Also, the cauliflower makes the texture of the smoothie creamier which is nice.
For protein powder, I’m sticking with Be Well By Kelly’s grass fed beef chocolate protein powder because it’s clean and tastes SO good. (I wrote a full review of the powder here, and you can use my code RUTH for $5 off your purchase if you decide to try it).
I’ve been using GOODONYA’s grass fed collagen for the last 3 months in smoothies and in the girls’ oatmeal. It also blends perfectly into my afternoon coffee. I love collagen for the extra protein and the benefits I’ve seen in my hair, skin, and nails. GOODONYA’s collagen is sourced directly from New Zealand and Australia.
Also, I’ve been using peanut butter instead of Nutzo butter–we use the organic red tub from Costco, AKA the greatest on earth. I feel like peanut butter is kind of polarizing from a health perspective, but it tastes amazing and it’s a fun change of pace, alright?
This smoothie is SO good and keeps me full all morning long. Tyler and the girls love it too.
This recipe makes enough for 2 big humans and 2 tiny humans. Divide in half for a single serving.
2 scoops of Be Well By Kelly Chocolate Protein Powder
2 tbsp GOODONYA Collagen Powder
1 cup Cauliflower (I buy the riced bags from Trader Joe’s)
½ cup Microgreens (also from Trader Joe’s)
½ cup blackberries
2 tbsp organic peanut butter
3 tbsp ground flax
Dash of cinnamon
Unsweetened Almond Milk
Blend and serve. Personally, I like a more watery smoothie, so the more ice and liquid the better! This is also an easy way to increase your hydration in the morning.

It’s a pre-weekend pick me up: just a little note with links to the latest blog posts, what I’m reading lately, and products I’m obsessed with. Think of it as a friend dropping off a surprise latte in the morning--you know?
