Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie

Hi Everyone, Happy Monday to you!

Let me ask you a question.  Do you dread Monday’s?  Do you get tired quicker on this day?  Do you get the Monday Blues?  Well I have a cure for you.  Something, that will give you pep, something to make you smile and something that will make someone else smile if you decide to share.  Let me show you what I have for you.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie

This is the cure for the Monday Blahs!  Let me introduce to you my Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie!!  This smoothie has protein, energy, vitamins and nutrients, not to mentions tastes AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!  If you’re a fan of the famous peanut butter and jelly sandwich, then this is the smoothie for you.  It’s made with non-fat milk, 2 tablespoons of the best healthy fat ever, peanut butter, greek yogurt and my personal favorite berry, strawberries!!!  This is one of my best smoothies I have ever made in my opinion, however I am kind of bias since it contains peanut butter!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie

My lovely step-daughter who eats the worse food ever, I’m not kidding about that, was getting ready for work, and I know her, she probably didn’t eat and would end up eating pizza at work.  So I made this smoothie, poured it in her travel cup and said drink this at work.  She said fine and out the door she went.  The next morning she asked, was that a peanut butter and jelly smoothie?  It tasted just like the sandwich and it was really creamy smooth.  Yupper Doodles it was!!  She said she loved it and loved how sweet it was.  Ha ha no sugar in this drink.  🙂 I thought this smoothie is way healthier than the pizza and the candy she would end up eating at work.  Plus this smoothie will fill her for hours and the protein boost will give her much-needed energy at work.  I’m glad I could giver her something nutritious, since she needs all the nutrition she can get.   I couldn’t even tell you what the last vegetable or fruit she ate and french fries and strawberries and cream frappuccinos from Starbucks don’t count!

  2. What a fun, delightful way to start the day! BTW, you’re quite sneaky, fooling your step-daughter like that!

    Looks so yummy! I could live off of PB&J anything.

    However, I’m curious about the calories? What kind of PB did you use? Unless it was pb2, I don’t see how this is only 201 calories. 2 tbs of PB are usually 180-200 calories alone.

  4. Jen has delish smoothies i pin them all lol. i think she has a great blog and web site and im always printing her recipes. So thanks Jen for another great smoothie, can’t wait to try it. Oh i also use Smart Balance PB.

  5. Yummm this sounds amazing! Peanut Butter Jelly time!

  6. YUM! PB & J in a glass-yes please!

  7. This sounds wonderful and looks beautiful. I just tried a smoothie recipe this morning that didn’t work (NOT yours!), so I’m really happy to see this one. I would probably add a scoop of vanilla (or non-flavored) protein powder to up the protein to where I like it. I’m really glad I found your blog – it seems we have similar tastes in food. 🙂

  8. This looks so creamy, flavorful and refreshing! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Ooh, how adorable! I like that you used strawberry jam- my favorite! 🙂

    Mmmm yummm I am going to have this for breakfast tomorrow!!

  11. I am TOTALLY going to try this!!!! It sounds and looks amazing! Pinning! Thanks for sharing this, love your blog!

    Best,
    Jen @ YummyHealthyEasy.com

  12. I put peanut butter in a smoothie for the first time the other day! I don’t know what I was waiting for – it was SO good. I’ll have to try your recipe next time!

  13. Any suggestions for making this a pb and grape jelly smoothie? I wouldn’t think just using grapes instead of strawberries would quite work but im kinda new to smoothies. 🙂

    Thanks!
    Holly

  14. What can I use as a substitution for steevia…it makes my throat swell shut…alergic!
    Thanks! LR

  15. Camryn Cowan says:

    Do you have to use the stevia and what is it for???

  16. Hi Jennifer, how are you?

    Lately I’ve been experimenting with smoothies and loving it, and this recipe is one that definitely I’m going to try.

    Thank you.

  17. I love this! I added spinach to mine to get those leafy greens in. The flavors of the peanut butter and strawberries really shine through and this is delicious and filing. Thank you!

  18. I’m a big breakfast lover but lately I just haven’t had the time to make anything. From my morning walks to rushing to the college center to do my online classes, it just doesn’t work out. I just made this for tomorrow morning (I need brain power for my exams). Of course I had to taste test and oh my gosh, this is yummy! I couldn’t taste the peanut butter (I didn’t measure. Just added a big spoonful, so that could be why) so I added another 1/2 spoonful but other than that, it tasted just like the sandwich.

  19. Cynthia says:

    Do you think nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt would work as well?
    Thanks!
    Cynthia

  20. YUM! This looks delicious! I love PB and J toast for breakfast but often don’t have the time in the morning to eat it. This is a great on the go breakfast!
