Chocolate PB Smoothie with Soymilk

Did you know that April is National Soyfoods Month?  Packed with protein and fiber, soyfoods are a great way to reduce calories, cholesterol, and saturated fat.  They also serve a as a great source of iron, calcium, vitamin B-12, magnesium and zinc. 



Soymilk is such a popular drink lately.  It's so convenient, because you can store it at room temperature, and then refrigerate it after opening it.  You can keep some in your cupboard, so you always have milk on hand.  How convenient is that?  I need to stock up on some!

Soyfoods Asociation of North Ameria (SANA) sent me a sample of soy products to try.  When I saw the container of WESTSOY Soymilk, I immediately wanted to make a smoothie with it.

I whipped up a chocolate peanut butter smoothie for breakfast and my kids slurped it up.  Delicious!  If you have a good blender add some spinach to it and no one will know that they're getting veggies too. 




Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

Serves 1

  • 1 c. WESTSOY Organic Original Soymilk
  • 1 banana
  • 2 T. (heaping) chocolate drink powder (like Nesquick)
  • 1 T. peanut butter (or other nut butter)
  • 2/3 c. crushed ice
Combine all ingredients in a blender (or use an immersion blender) and blend until smooth. Pour into glass and enjoy! 

The Soyfoods Asociation of North Ameria (SANA) has lots of information about the health benefits of soy.  And they have lots of delicious recipes to try.  


Soy Milk Scalloped Potatoes and Edamame Hummus are just a few of the yummy looking recipes!
