PB + J Smoothie

by Сашка

This healthy Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie is made with strawberries, blueberries, peanut butter, and almond milk – and it’s my favorite smoothie!

Peanut Butter Jelly Smoothie

This smoothie tastes like peanut butter and jelly – except it has no grapes. The peanut butter is a great source of protein and keeps me full until lunch. This drink has 6 grams of protein, 8 grams of fiber, and less than 225 calories. I usually add a scoop of unflavored protein such as pea protein powder. A few more Peanut Butter smoothies recipes are this PB Banana and Cacao Green Smoothie, Strawberry Peanut Butter Swirl Smoothie Bowl, and Blueberry Banana PB Smoothie.

PB + J Smoothie

Healthy smoothies are my go-to! I always used to order this PB&J smoothie at my local gym years ago. I think it’s the best smoothie recipe, and I often make it at home because I love it so much.

Is peanut butter a good source of protein for smoothies?

One tablespoon of peanut butter has 4 grams of protein, making it an easy to way to increase the protein in smoothies. If you want even more, add a scoop of any unflavored protein powder.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie Ingredients

  • Fruit: I used frozen blueberries and fresh strawberries, but you could always use frozen strawberries if they’re not in season. If you only have fresh blueberries, freeze them!
  • Milk: I like unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but use whatever you have.
  • Peanut Butter: Choose a creamy, natural peanut butter (one with just peanuts and salt).
  • Sweetener: I prefer stevia, like NuNaturals Vanilla. However, any liquid sweetener, like honey, maple syrup, or agave, will work.
  • Ice to make the smoothie cold and thick
  • Protein Powder: Optional

How to Make a Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie

The best thing about making smoothies is how simple they are! Just throw everything in the blender and puree until smooth.

Can you make smoothies in advance?

If you don’t have time to make this peanut butter smoothie in the morning, put everything but the frozen blueberries and ice in the blender the night before and refrigerate. In the morning, add the remaining ingredients and blend.

Variations:

  • Protein: add a scoop of any unflavored protein powder
  • Veggies: If you want a nutrient boost, try adding a handful of spinach or some frozen cauliflower. It shouldn’t affect the taste, but the spinach might change its color.
