Every once in a while I like to add peanut butter to my smoothie. Although choosing a low in sugar or organic peanut butter may be a better option, it is still something we should consume in moderation. This will give you the flavor of peanut butter and sweetness and tang from the berries as well as the health benefit from oils in the peanut butter, vitamins and calcium in the fruit and yogurt and milk as well as health benefits of the flax or wheat germ.
