New products sometimes blow my mind.
Often they seem like obvious conclusions (hello, peanut butter Oreos), at times they aren’t as obvious but still delicious (Vega’s vanilla chai protein powder)… and then there are times when I have to say WTF?!
Ladies and gentlemen, PB&J Vodka, by Van Gogh.
I wish I were kidding.
“The fragrance of our PB&J vodka is predominantly of peanuts complemented by the fresh fruit aroma of raspberry. In the mouth, the roles are reversed with the raspberry taking center stage supported by the toasty flavor of peanut butter and a hint of vanilla on the side.”
Now you can legit drink your lunch.*
In other news, I made a smoothie. *One you could really drink for lunch.
A chocolate peanut butter protein smoothie was all I wanted after a particularly hard weight session in the gym. This totally hit the spot… special thanks to the avocado for making this a perfectly creamy treat.
Topped with my new love Hemp Seeds. If you haven’t tried them yet… you should. They are fantastically chewy and nutty. I eat them standing in the pantry doorway.
Chocolate Peanut Butter (Avocado) Smoothie
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1/4 avocado
- 1 handful spinach
- 1 C unsweetened almond milk
- 1 T peanut flour
- 10 drops cocoa NuNaturals liquid Stevia
- 1 tsp cocoa (optional – I like it extra-chocolate-y)
- shake of salt
- pinch guar gum
Put it in a blender and blend away!
I want to work in product development in my next life.
What are your thoughts on PB&J-flavored vodka?
Have you made any good/new smoothie concoctions lately?
