Low carb days typically consist of lots of nuts, nut butters, eggs, avocado, fish and other proteins, lots of veggies, and very little fruit. But my body CRAVES those carbs, and by the end of low carb day #2, I need to figure out a way to satisfy my sweet tooth!
I recently added this low carb PB&J Smoothie to my Monday and Tuesday menu, and it really hits the spot! It includes lots of fat from peanut butter, loads of fiber from chia seeds, and some sweet but tart frozen raspberries. Add some collagen peptides for protein and you have a healthy, filling and low-carb friendly snack or dessert!
Here is how I make it, but feel free to tweak the ingredient measurements if you are tracking macros and need to make it work for you!
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
3-4 tablespoons of your favorite natural peanut butter
1 serving of collagen peptides
2 tablespoons chia seeds
6 fluid ounces frozen raspberries
Blend together and ENJOY! XO
Food is fuel.
I love to cook and bake recipes that incorporate healthy whole foods and those nutritious macro and micronutrients into our daily diets. I also like to make treats though, because let's face it, everyone loves a good sweet now and then! My favorite part about cooking, though, is sharing my latest recipes with others. ENJOY! XO
