Scorched Peanut Bar Healthy Smoothie Recipe – Thermomix or Blender
This healthy smoothie recipe is just what you need for a quick, nutritious breakfast. The recipe is packed full of healthy ingredients whilst being creamy and naturally sweet.
Smoothies are on frequent breakfast rotation in our household. Partly because we always seem to run out of cereal midweek and partly because I have a child that can spend a lifetime staring at his breakfast each morning in a sleepy daze.
Having a smoothie option is great for those mornings when things are not going according to plan, or when time disappears suddenly and you need to get kids out the door fast.
So this scorched peanut bar smoothie is often a breakfast replacement which means it needs to have enough goodness to last my kids until recess. I try to make a healthy smoothie which will supply all the same nutrients in vitamin and mineral fortified breakfast cereals.
Optional Protein Powder
This healthy smoothie recipe uses a vanilla protein powder for an extra nutritional boost but if you aren’t a fan of adding supplements to your children’s food, simply omit the protein powder and add a teaspoon of vanilla paste.
The protein powder I use is from a health food shop. It’s the Madagascan Vanilla flavour from ISOWHEY. I chose this brand because it’s low in fat and sugar and higher in protein than most powders. Also, the powder dissolves well in liquid but equally has a great mouthfeel (and combines well) in bliss balls.
I use the same protein powder in bliss balls AND smoothies.
This flavour combination is one of our favourites. When I asked the kids to come up with a name for it they said it tastes like a Snickers bar without the chocolate.
After a bit of thinking and drinking, we decided it was the buttery caramel from the dates which was the main flavour. The peanut butter just gives a subtle nut flavour. Using coconut milk and vanilla powder gives a lovely vanilla malt flavour to the smoothie. So all combined the taste is like a liquid scorched peanut bar.
Smoothies are also ideal as an afterschool snack or for a quick post-workout energy boost. Try to always have some peeled bananas in the freezer so you’re never caught without the ingredients. If you do happen to only have fresh bananas, add 1 cup of ice to the smoothie before you blend to give it that cool refreshing lift.
Healthy Smoothie Variations
- I like to use unsweetened coconut milk for my smoothies because I really enjoy the flavour. Feel free to sub this milk with your favourite milk or milk substitute.
- For an extra hit of vanilla add a teaspoon of vanilla paste.
- Add 1 Tablespoon of chia seeds for a boost to fibre and nutrients.
- Substitute the honey for the sweetener of your choice or omit it entirely.
