Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie

Combine frozen blueberries with peanut butter and banana for a protein-packed peanut butter and jelly smoothie that tastes just like your favorite PB&J sandwich from childhood!

PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY SMOOTHIE

Do you skip breakfast? I’m only asking because I know someone who used to skip breakfast regularly (cough cough… Isaac). But then I introduced him to protein smoothies and things changed. Now he asks for me to make him a smoothie on the regular and I LOVE making them for him. Not only because it’s something sweet I can easily do, but I also like knowing that he’s getting some fuel for the day before heading into work. His job is pretty physical and he often doesn’t break to eat until the afternoon so having a smoothie in the morning is key.

PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY SMOOTHIE

Isaac is obsessed with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches so I knew he’d love a smoothie with a similar flavor profile. Enter the peanut butter and jelly smoothie with only five simple ingredients — frozen blueberries, peanut butter, a frozen banana, protein powder and almond milk.

Because this smoothie is meant to be a meal replacement I make sure it has a good balance of macronutrients (carbs, protein and fat). You’ve got the carbs from the fruit,  healthy fat from the peanut butter and protein from the protein powder.

Frozen Banana = Perfect Smoothie Texture

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with banana slices are delish so it makes perfect sense to have a frozen banana in this smoothie. Plus, the banana gives it some additional sweetness and a creamy texture. I’m totally on-board with the frozen cauliflower, low-sugar smoothies but I still think frozen bananas give smoothies the BEST texture. Hands down!

PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY SMOOTHIE

The frozen berries and peanut butter combo is so tasty and the color of this smoothie is absolutely gorgeous. It’s basically a liquid peanut butter and jelly sandwich, sans the bread! I hope you like it as much as we do.

      This is another favorite of mine. No added fresh spinach, and extra greens

      As a child, I remember making Pb&j sandwiches with my family and packing for lunches at school! This smoothie took me back to those days. I love this combination of the blueberries and peanut butter combined with the sweetness of the banana. Can’t wait to keep making this smoothie again and again!

      My vanilla protein powder masked a lot of the peanut butter taste so I added a little bit of pb2 at the end and it was great.
