The new year has started and with it new dreams and goals. Breakfast time for me is somewhat challenging, so I have created a Mexican Cocoa Peanut Delight Smoothie recipe that will help me accomplish my new year’s goal of eating breakfast everyday in 2016. This Mexican Cocoa Peanut Delight Smoothie has the nourishing protein from peanuts as I am using the new Jif Peanut Powder, pure cocoa nibs that I brought from Oaxaca, chia seeds I purchased in Mexico, orange blossom honey, cinnamon powder and unsweetened Silk Almond milk.

I do not believe in dieting, my approach for a better lifestyle is to opt for a balanced nutrition plan that includes ingredients from the different food categories, portion control and exercising regularly.

Eating breakfast is very important since it is the first meal of the day and sets how the rest of the day will go. For me breakfast is a meal that I skip most days, but I have recognized that I need to start doing something to fix this problem.

In my busy schedule, having smoothies like this Mexican Cocoa Peanut Delight Smoothie makes it easy for me and my family to achieve the goal of a better lifestyle. Adding natural ingredients like fruits and veggies, seeds and good amount of protein makes those smoothies to be fulfilling and good tasting too.

I like Jif Peanut Powder  because it is made with only one ingredient: fresh roasted peanuts, with no salt or sugar added, and has 85% less fat than traditional peanut butter.

Jif Peanut Powder is available at Walmart, you can find it in the aisle where the traditional peanut butter is sold. The Jif Peanut Powder family also includes Jif Chocolate Peanut Powder, that contains semisweet chocolate and a dash of sugar. Great product for those looking for an ingredient that isn’t too sweet but that has chocolate.
