Peanut Butter & Co #MysteryIngredient Challenge + #Giveaway

It’s no shock to any of you that I have a love of Peanut Butter.  I’ve thankfully passed my love of peanut butter onto my daughter who often asks for a “peanut butter sample spoon line up” as a snack.  That would include a spoonfuls of all the amazing Peanut Butter flavors that the Peanut Butter & Co have to offer.

As a LUCKY member of the Yum Squad I was tasked with their #MysteryIngredient Challenge!

My ingredient… Matcha Green Tea Powder!!!

Matcha tea is LOADED with powerful antioxidants and vitamins.  It’s been called fat burner, cancer fighter and so much more!!

So, I added some to a smoothie and the Hubs proclaimed it the “BEST SMOOTHIE EVER.”  Of course he added that if I wanted to make it for him every morning for breakfast that would be GREAT… Um yeah, sure honey let’s add one more thing to my insanely busy morning routine.

The good news is that this is SOO easy to make that even someone with little to know kitchen skills could make this!.. yes hubby, I am talking to YOU!

  2. I’ve only tried matcha once – I made it into a pudding, but I think I used too much and no other flavor so it was a bit overwhelming. Will have to try it again, though, and this recipe sounds yummy! 🙂 That is hilarious that your daughter requests pb … but can’t blame her!
