Peanut Butter and Celery Shake

My sister and my best friend had been pushing me to make a peanut butter and celery shake. They told me I had to taste it because it was very refreshing, healthy and incredibly delicious. Every time I wanted to do it, I did not had all the ingredients, but this morning was meant to be! I prepared this energy shake with half an apple, oats, greek yogurt, peanut butter, banana and celery. These ingredients blended together succesfully.

Since the celery has antiinflamatory properties and act as a diurectic, you may have this shake after a workout. But you may also drink it before because the nutrients will deliver you enough energy. This shake can be enjoyed for breakfast or as a meal. What I liked the most about this recipe was the fresh taste that the celery delivered.
