For a sweet and frothy way to slim, try adding peanut butter to your morning smoothie! The protein in the creamy spread is broken down into two amino acids that can dampen hunger and carbohydrate cravings for up to 3 hours, and researchers at Harvard University found that increasing stores of these amino acids can reduce snacking by 81 percent and cut overall calorie intake by 16 percent. What’s more, peanut butter can help replenish the body’s stores of CoQ10—a coenzyme that helps the body convert food into the fuel that cells need to function optimally. That’s especially key for women over 40 since the body’s ability to produce its own CoQ10 declines with age.
You can get the slenderizing, energy-boosting benefits of peanut butter in this tasty sip.
Here’s the easy recipe:
1 pkg. (6 oz.) raspberry yogurt
1/2 cup low-fat milk
1/4 cup frozen raspberries
2 Tbs. peanut butter
