Smoothies are one of my favorite summertime breakfasts. The key to a filling smoothie is adding something with a bit of protein. I often use plain¬† yogurt but, due to a serious lack of groceries I plan to remedy this weekend, had none in my fridge. I decided peanut butter would be a suitable substitute and, oh my, it was.
