Peanut butter is my love language and I have no shame. Low carb, full of healthy fats and oh-so-tasty, peanut butter is a great way to compliment high fiber foods such as apples, whole grain bread or oatmeal.

For this thick and creamy apple peanut butter smoothie recipe I simply blended together an apple, a banana, peanut butter, yogurt, flax seed and a little cinnamon and vanilla.

The creamy, salty peanut butter is the perfect balance to the sweet and tart apples. If you want to keep it vegan, simply swap out the Greek yogurt for full fat coconut milk.

The end result is a sweet, creamy, slightly tart and nutty smoothie that will keep you full and satisfied for hours.

    Is there a good substitute for bananas in smoothies. I don’t like them at all

      Most fruits are good at acting as a natural sweetener, you can use another fruit you do like instead!

    this has become my absolute best/favorite way to begin my mornings; just love all the ingredients, apples especially, and often add another summer fruit, peach, plum, nectarine, Liz:):
