Peanut Butter Jelly Smoothie

Growing up one of one my all time favorite lunches was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. My mom used to make them every day for lunch and I never tired of it. All through college it remained my go-to meal when I was rushing out the door to class, or the year I lived in the sorority house and didn’t always have the most desirable meals…
At the age of 24 it’s safe to say a good ol’ fashioned pb&j still ranks as one of my top comfort food choices. Now it’s more of an almond butter and jelly sammie, but just as delicious.
Meet the adult version of a pb&j, in a smoothie format. This has quickly become a favorite lunch or after-workout beverage of choice. There are so many variations that you could make of this- using peanut butter, almond butter or even pb2 (just the powder), almond milk vs milk and the various protein powders to choose between.

    I have a smoothie almost every morning! I love that its a fast breakfast but filling and healthy! I normally just do banana, almond milk, almond butter, spinach, and vanilla protein powder but will def. need to try adding berries! Who doesn’t love a pb&j

    That sounds so similar to the smoothies we make at home! Fresh homemade smoothies are just delish!

    I can sufficiently say that I love the PBJ combo more than any 21-year-old really should. It’s a sickness. This sounds like the PERFECT way to fuel my addiction!

    nothing wrong with peanut butter and jelly one of my favorite dishes from my childhood is mac and cheese and i still make it all the time. although i dont’ think mac and cheese would make a very good smoothie. this one looks great
