Did you know that September is Better Breakfast Month? Mornings around our house during the school year are nothing short of hectic. There is one part of our routine that tends to be more difficult and that is breakfast. When you have a picker eater who won’t eat protein or anything outside of the cereal world typically it makes breakfast choices tough. I want to send my kids off to school with a nutritious breakfast that keeps them full all morning while they learn. One thing he will eat is peanut butter, so these Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothies are one way I know he will stay full longer.

Peanut butter is also a very budget-friendly ingredient for a morning meal. On average, peanut butter costs 16 cents per ounce, which is enough peanut butter to make one sandwich.
