Packed with peanut butter and jelly flavors and loaded up with THREE sources of protein, this simple smoothie is a healthy breakfast must!
PB and smooth-YAY! Take that, Hump Day!
Hi, friends. Yeah, I obviously went there again with the pb&j love. First cookies then smoothies. Would you ever believe that this girl used to be a pbj sandwich-hater?
Anywho. So I’m still trying to get the healthy but-still-so-gosh-darn-good stuff back into my life post-Florida and this smoothie is totally fitting into that category right now.
And kindaaaaa working it’s way into my blender daily which is A-ok with me. I mean, it’s PROTEIN, guys! The healthy stuff! Never mind all those ugly rumors about pb&j being bad for the diet—when combined with loads of protein in smoothie form no less, it absolutely fits the healthy bill.
Ahhh, I love it when I can sound so convincing. I totally convince even myself. 😉
There are three (count ’em!) THREE different sources of protein in this smoothie. No, seriously! I wasn’t kidding around when I put the innocent little word “protein” in the title.
- Greek yogurt
- Protein powder
- Peanut butter
Paired with strawberry jelly, frozen sliced strawberries, a frozen banana, and just a splash of milk. And that is IT! This smoothie probably isn’t even “officially” a recipe just because it’s that freaking easy.
And obviously SO freaking good. It’s got BIG pb&j flavors in every sip, it’s so ultra-creamy (gosh, I missed my Vitamix these past two weeks!) and you seriously would never guess that there’s so much awesome protein packed inside.
Pssssssst! It’s a great way to get your kids to eat (or drink!) more protein too! I mean, what kid doesn’t love pb&j all the things??
I was that weird kid that despised even those words alone. Thank goodness THAT insanity has passed.
My insanity now? Clearly, it’s this smoothie. In fact, I kinda need to go make another.
And I mean, seriously. Peace out, guys. ♥

I’m smoothie-obsessed, guys. Have you noticed?
Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Smoothie
Layered Mixed Berry Green Power Smoothie
I don’t think I liked PH&J sandwiches much when I was younger but for some reason I love them so much now! They are just so classic and remind me of my childhood! I’ve never combined them both in a smoothie but I bet this tastes amazing 🙂
YES. Same deal with me! I totally dig PB&J sammies today but obviously especially in smoothie form! 🙂
