PB&J Sammie Smoothie

Legumes—beans, dried peas, and soy products such as tofu—are important sources of fiber, protein, minerals, and B-complex vitamins. This recipe is a great way to get a “bean” for breakfast, because peanuts are in fact legumes! Sure you could have peanut butter toast, but how about drinking this protein-packed PB&J instead?
