Smoothies are great for digestion as well!

Be ware though, some people with stomach issues do not do well with cold food, so listen to your body!
I use riced cauliflower that I buy already frozen. If you are making your own riced cauliflower, you will want to steam it before you freeze it! If you don’t love cauliflower (or it doesn’t love you) you can also used frozen zucchini, although it will change the color slightly!
The way I get the most peanut butter flavor out of this smoothie is with peanut powder (or peanut flour). Some of my favorite brands are Crazy Richards Peanut Powder (affiliate) and Protein Plus Peanut Flour. You can also find Jif Peanut Powder in your local grocery stores as well in the peanut butter section! I like these brands because there is no added sugar in them, just one ingredient, peanuts!
