Apple and Peanut Butter Smoothie
Start with Why by Simon Sinek has inspired my husband. Have you read it? I cannot wait to get started with this book. When he reads he keeps a log of his favorite quotes to look back and he shares some with me.
Yesterday I wasn’t really feeling inspired for cooking, I didn’t know what I wanted to have for breakfast. I tried to make coconut pancakes but those were an epic fail. I cannot believe how crumbly coconut flour gets when cooked, but that’s for another post.
One quote from the book that he repeats a lot is “People don’t buy what you do; they buy why you do it.” It’s like apples and peanut butter, they were made for each other and it’s the why that influenced my breakfast smoothie. Eric will put up a fight about drinking the green juice (not really but I’ll often find a full green smoothie, wasted).
I think he just can’t get past the color. But when I told him “It’s Apples & Peanut Butter he guzzled it up before he even had time to ask if I added spinach 😉 He knows me too well.
Here’s the recipe: it’s quick, colorful and delicious. Enjoy!Print
