Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie, Anyone?

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie Recipe


Lucas is currently obsessed with smoothies.  Every morning he gets up and ask to “push the button!”  He says it over and over until I give in.  I was doing a lot of fruit and veggie smoothies but wanted something with a bit more fat and protein (because my skinny mini needs it AND because it helps me stay full longer).

I got this idea from a smoothie on my BikiniBodyMommy Meal Plan subscription (and no, I don’t think I’m a bikini body mommy – it’s a mommy who creates 90 day workout challenges and meal plans and I love her!).  I modified it to be more Lucas-friendly!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 banana
  • 5 or 6 large strawberries
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter (I use an all-natural brand that really needs to be stirred so it’s less thick than Jif or or a similar brand)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 handfuls of ice

PB and J Smoothie

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and “push the button!”

Blend until smooth. Divide among two glasses (or if your kid is like mine – 3/4 for them and a sip or two for mommy!).

This really has a been a huge hit in our house.  When he was teething and not really eating anything other than smoothies I even thought to put a scoop of coconut oil in it for extra fat and calories!

I hope you (and your little ones) enjoy this as much as we do!
