I got the idea for this delicious peanut butter and jelly smoothie from my local Smoothie King®. They have a smoothie called the Peanut Power Plus that has peanut butter mixed with frozen bananas and berries ... and let me tell you, it is my weakness when it comes to smoothies! It taste just like a PB&J sandwich, but grain-free!
What ingredients are in a Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie?
- Frozen Banana - Bananas are a great way to add natural sweetness to a smoothie. If they are frozen, they also help to make the smoothie creamy.
- Frozen Berries - The great thing about this smoothie is that you can use any kind of berries you prefer! It's better to use frozen berries so that the smoothie will be less "slushy", but if you only have fresh berries, that will work too! You may want to add ice to the blender if the berries are not frozen.
- Peanut Butter Powder - I like using peanut butter powder when I am trying to control my macros. It gives the smoothie a rich peanut butter flavor!
- Ground Flax Seed - flax seeds add healthy omega 3 fats and fiber to the smoothie!
- Dairy-free Milk - I prefer to use a non-dairy milk such as almond milk, coconut milk or cashew milk in my smoothies. Feel free to use regular cow's milk or even coconut water instead.
How to make a PB&J Smoothie:
Place the ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
What kind of berries can I use in a PB&J Smoothie?
I recommend using frozen berries but feel free to use fresh berries if that's all you have on-hand. Some berries that are delicious with this smoothie are strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherries or blackberries.
Can I use real peanut butter in my smoothie?
Yes, you can! If you are looking to control the calorie and fat content in your smoothie, using peanut butter powder is a very easy way to achieve your goals. If you are not concerned about counting macros, feel free to use natural peanut butter, almond butter or even cashew butter!
Do I need a high-speed blender to make smoothies?
You can make smoothies in any blender. If you do not have a high-speed blender you will simply have to blend longer in order to get the ingredients smooth.
