In honor of our upcoming Challenge, today I'm sharing my high protein, creamy peanut butter banana smoothie that can be used ALL challenge long!

Throughout the Challenge, you learn the importance of combining Intermittent Fasting with foods rich in protein, fat and fiber to help you maximize your weight loss and wellness results. This combination is crucial for balancing blood sugar levels, reducing sugar cravings and minimizing insulin spikes.


But does that mean you need to get rid of all sugar? Not necessarily.


Some sugars have a different impact on the body depending on how they're eaten or what they're paired with.


For example, in today's recipe we're using a small amount of banana in the smoothie. Banana is traditionally a medium glycemic load fruit (meaning it has a "medium" impact on our blood sugar levels).



However, when you combine it with high quality sources of protein and fat, it can help to slow down the release of the sugars into the body.

In today's recipe, we're using a combination of greek yogurt and my zero sugar Vanilla protein Powder to get 30 grams of high quality complete protein. This protein content is helpful for preventing hunger, reducing cravings and keeping the metabolism from dipping down during the weight loss process.


We're also packing it with great sources of fiber, such as chia seeds and frozen cauliflower rice (don't worry, you won't even taste it!), to help slow the release of sugar into the body.


Cheers to the New Year! Enjoy today's high protein smoothie recipe!
