PB&J Smoothie Recipe
Serves 1 (makes about 2 cups)
1/2 cup water
1 TBSP honey*
1 TBSP peanut butter* or 2 TBSP peanuts* (We use unsalted varieties, but salted varieties taste good, too! Also, you can use almonds or almond butter instead, if you prefer, but that won’t technically be “PB&J.”)
1 1/2 frozen bananas
1 cup frozen strawberries
*Check out our Grocery Shopping Guide for our tips on selecting the most additive-free versions of these ingredients.
I’ve only made this recipe in a high-powered blender (e.g., VitaMix or Blendtec).
If using a standard blender, you should use nut butter rather than the whole nuts, and you may need to add more water. And you’ll most likely end up with a more drinkable (runny) smoothie compared to the scoop-able type shown here.
Place all ingredients into a high-powered blender in the order listed above. If you’re using nuts instead of nut butter, it’s best to blend those with the water, first, before adding the other ingredients. That way you won’t have nut chunks in your smoothie.
Blend on high speed until desired consistency is reached. Don’t feel ANY shame if you lick your glass clean.
