Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie

Let’s get this blog started off right. With some food!

I’ve been making breakfast smoothies of all different kinds off and on for years now. Smoothies are an easy and quick meal, require very little prep, and are pretty easy to clean up after. This makes them ideal for my mornings where I wake up and just want to get to work as quickly as I can.

I present you with the approximate ingredients to the smoothie. I don’t normally measure anything out but this should get you started. Make one and then adjust to taste.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie

  • 3/4 cup nonfat greek yogurt
  • 1 cup frozen three berry mix (raspberry, strawberry, blackberry)
  • 1 cup nonfat milk
  • 4 tbsp unsweetened creamy peanut butter (smuckers natural is really tasty)
  • 2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder
  • a small amount of agave nectar (to taste, depending on the ripeness of the berries)

Put it all in a blender and set it for the smoothie setting if you have one. My blender does a bunch of pulses on high to mix things up then runs a blend cycle for a few seconds and repeats.

It should be noted this is not a low fat, or low anything smoothie for that matter. The peanut butter will add a significant amount of calories and fat. I drink this on mornings when I’m going to do weight training at the gym in the afternoon. That being said, it is probably better for you and more nutritious than many other breakfast options. An added bonus is that it will keep you filled up for quite a while.

I hope you have a great day! Let me know if you try this.
