I just love protein smoothies! They’re my favorite way to start the day. Protein smoothies make me happy because they hold an infinite amount of possible flavor combinations. Also, I absolutely love the mix of crunchy peanut butter with smooth jelly, but because I don’t eat bread (even gluten-free bread) I rarely get to enjoy this delicious duo.
So then one day I had an idea…Why not combine all of this amazingness into something even more amazing?
And that is how my PB&J Smoothie came to be!
All you need is 1 frozen banana (if not frozen, then add ice), 1 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice), 1 Tbsp peanut butter (almond, cashew, or sunflower butter works well too for those with a peanut allergy!), 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, 1/3 to 1/2 cup assorted frozen berries (I used strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, & raspberries), and 1 serving vanilla protein powder (optional). Blend and top with a handful of granola! Enjoy ❤ By the way, don’t forget the cute straw and mason jar! 😉
