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.

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.

  1. YUMMY! THNX FOR ALL YOUR IDEAS & RECIPES!
    HOWEVER,PROTEIN PWDR NOT NECESSARY WHEN USING NUTS OR BEANS.
    BLESSINGS ✌?

  2. This sounds amazing but I’m super lazy in the mornings, would this be okay to prepare the night before or would it seperate by morning?

  3. Oooh, this smoothie reminds me of my favorite SweetFrog concoction: PB froyo, original tart froyo, and fresh berries and bananas. I can’t believe I hadn’t come up with this smoothie already on my own! Definitely trying it this week. Thanks!

  4. I love PB and J but I am super picky about the jelly flavor! I can not stand grape jelly! I will only use strawberry or blueberry jelly or I also really like peanut butter and apple butter sandwiches. So good!!

  5. When you used PB2 in smoothies, do you prepare it or just use the powder? Also, I’ve been preparing my PB2 with plain Greek yogurt lately! SO yummy and the extra protein makes it that much more filling!

  6. I grew up going to one of those “no-peanut-butter-allowed” schools – pretty sure I didn’t have my first PB & J until high school. Then I cursed my entire upbringing because I had missed out for so long. 😉

    Random fact about me? I currently have 14 piercings. 🙂
    (It’s not as bad as it sounds because the vast majority are in my ears).

  7. I ate the same thing every single day in highschool (and I’m pretty sure earlier too): peanut butter and honey. I would also do peanut butter and strawberry jelly. I’ll definitely be making this though, just for old time’s sake. ha.

  8. I think I also had pbj almost everyday. You would think I’d be tired of them, buuuut there are some days where that’s all I want (I try to make grown up versions this time and not made on white Sunbeam bread) ; )

    To your #1 – corn was the only vegetable I LIKED. Even when I became vegetarian a few years ago, it was still the only one on my list (weird, right!?). Luckily, I have since grown to love all veggies equally.

  9. Haha, love the PB&J theme! My random fact is that when I find quotations I like on the internet or in a book, I write them down in a little notebook, so I have an always-growing book of favorite quotations!

  10. For about the past 20 years of my life I’ve had a strange phobia of bananas until about 3 months ago and now I can’t get enough of them …in my oats, on pancakes, in pancake batter, dipped in almond butter and of course banana softserve!!!
