Here is a new and healthy smoothie recipe packed with antioxidants and protein. I love the sweetening with Figs!  And we all love Peanut Butter here at the Cottage!  We tried it yesterday for lunch, and LOVED it! A big Thank You to Beatriz Portela for posting it, and letting me repost! If you enjoy photographs of beautiful, vividly colorful blooms, Beatriz’s blog is a must see! Have a lovely day!

peanut figC (2)I love peanut butter—spooned straight out of the jar, on bread, in a pie, in sauce, and in a shake! The ingredients are non-hydrogenated peanut butter, very ripe bananas, fresh figs and soy milk. You can use a nut milk or dairy if you prefer.
