Protein in a Yogurt Recipe
Meat counts for a great source of necessary protein. However, yogurt is another good choice for daily protein intake. Top off dinner with Peanut Butter Yogurt Sweet Treat. Who doesn’t like that satisfying feeling that comes after indulging in a sweet treat?
Why Peanut Butter?
Peanut butter has protein and other good stuff. How it benefits you:
- protein is known for helping to lower risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke
- the fiber in peanut butter helps with bowel health
- vitamin e helps protect us from toxins like air pollution, neurological diseases, cataracts, and diabetes
One serving of the Adams No-Stir peanut creamy butter contains 10% of vitamin E. That’s two tablespoons. When I blend my Shakeology drinks, I often add a serving of peanut butter. It tastes incredibly delicious!
