Today I brought to you a delicious, fresh and a pinch of decadent Blueberry Banana Smoothie. Why decadent? Because this time I added in my morning smoothie, just a bit of the new Reese Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread which makes a big difference in taste. Humm… this is definitely a yummy treat for your morning, but with all the nutritious ingredients I put in there I am sure you won’t feel so guilty drinking it, right?
Before we check this recipe out, I have to say that my love for Reese came from a long time ago, when I arrived in Canada. Reese’s peanut butter cups were the first different sweet treat that I tried in Canada. In Brazil, we don’t have the habit of eating peanut butter. I know this is so sad and crazy, right? But this is true. When I tasted this combo chocolate and peanut butter I instantly fell in love. Then, when my husband and I were just starting to know each other, he asked me one day what kind of chocolate I like it. We were just friends… Well I thought we were just friends, but actually he was already thinking of asking me to go out with him, but I didn’t have any idea.
I said to him that I love the Reese’s peanut butter cups and then few days later he brought me a huuuuuuge case of Reese. I immediately asked him how he could buy such a huge case of that, since you can’t find it on a supermarket?! He told me he had a friend who owns a vending machine business and he asked his friend to order a huge box for me. So, to make this story short I had Reese’s peanut butter cups for the entire year. I am not even kidding. That time I was volunteer at a Portuguese language school and I brought chocolate for everybody. It was so fun!! The kids loved them (of course I made sure no one had peanut allergies). And in the end we went out and we have such a wonderful night. It was on September 21, 2010 when we started to date. It is so fun that exactly 5 years ago I am here now writing a post about Reese. Such a coincidence!
However, I got to say that since me and my husband decided to eat as healthier as we can, we reduced the amount of chocolate and sweets from our diet. So, I stopped eating chocolates every weekend, but since Reese released this new spread I was dying to try it. It didn’t disappoint because it tastes exactly like their Reese’s peanut butter cups.
But, what I love about this is that you have infinite possibilities of how to use it. You can bake delicious cakes and cookies with it or you can try to make something a little healthier like this Blueberry Banana Smoothie. I added lots of good-for-you-nutrients such as chia, oatmeal, almond milk, blueberries and banana that you will love. Since this spread is already sweet you don’t even need to add any sweetener. Believe me this smoothie rocks!! It is so delicious and yummy!
