Spring races + Strawberry PB2-Chocolate Smoothie.

I officially have two races coming up this spring - the Shamrock Shuffle 8k in March, and the Soldier Field 10 Mile race in May. These are my two most favorite races in Chicago, and this will be my third time running each race. I'm planning to start a training schedule sometime in February and will share once I put it together. I'm excited! Especially for spring to just get here already. A pretty {and tasty} smoothie was just the thing I needed this morning to remind me the next season will be here eventually.

I recently ran out of my favorite smoothie add-on, PB2. I ordered another supply online, including the Chocolate PB2 that I have been wanting to try. It arrived in the mail a few days ago and did not disappoint with this new smoothie creation. The chocolate version includes the perfect amount of extra flavor without being too sweet. This will definitely be a breakfast repeat!

Strawberry PB2-Chocolate Smoothie
Makes one smoothie:

3/4 cup frozen strawberries
2 Tablespoons chocolate PB2
1 banana
1 cup original almond milk
1/2 cup lowfat vanilla yogurt

Blend on "ice crusher" for 15 seconds, and "stir" for 30 seconds.

Have a wonderful Sunday!


  1. I absolutely love putting PB in berry smoothies. I make a "PB & J" smoothie that is PB and blueberries.
