Apples and peanut butter are such a great and healthy snack. Why not make a smoothie out of this delicious combo and make it into a breakfast smoothie. It’s creamy, sweet and a quick breakfast option. A fun take on a classic.
Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:
Although they are native to South America, peanuts have made their way through the American diet and are one of the most grown crops in the United States. A serving of 2 tablespoons contains 188 calories, 7.7 g of protein - which helps keep your tissues strong and promotes immune function - as well as 16 g of fat, a concentrated source of energy. Be mindful that some brands contain additives (e.g. sugar) that can lower the nutritional value of food. It's best to opt for 'natural' brands that are minimally processed and do not contain (partially) hydrogenated oils.
