Peanut Butter Cinnamon Smoothie

Peanut Butter Cinnamon Smoothie featuring Chris Downing and Shakeology

It appears that SHIFT SHOP creator and Super Trainer Chris Downing and I feel the same way about peanut butter. I want all of it. Which is why I’m so in love with this new Peanut Butter Cinnamon Smoothie recipe that we’ve nicknamed Downing-ology. You know, because it’s made with Shakeology! The brand new Café Latte Vegan Shakeology to be exact.

Because, as tasty as it is, peanut butter is pretty calorically dense! Just two tablespoons of it will set you back around 200 calories—which is one of the reasons it’s counted as a teaspoon in the Portion Control Containers used in the SHIFT SHOP and many other Beachbody programs.

If you’re a peanut butter fan like Chris and I, this Peanut Butter Cinnamon Smoothie will satisfy your peanut butter craving without you having to resist eating it out of the jar with a spoon. I mean, honestly, who does that? Cough. Instead, Chris uses powdered peanut butter, and adds cinnamon for an extra dimension of flavor and to help bring out the smoothie’s peanut buttery-ness. Try it, hashtag it #Downingology and tell us what you think!
