PB&J Green Smoothie

Pin It

This PB&J Green Smoothie is another one that will probably go down well with the kiddos.  
Who I am kidding?  It goes down pretty well with the grown-ups too. ;)

I use natural creamy peanut butter in mine and usually strawberries since strawberry jam is my spread of choice for my PB&J's, but I have been known to throw some blackberries in there instead.

If you are more of a grape jelly PB&J'er, you could give a low sugar or organic grape jelly a try in this.  I haven't went the actual jelly route in one of these before, but if you do give it a go please come back and let me know how it worked for you.  I would love to know!

I added some toasted oats to this green smoothie to replicate the bread on your traditional peanut butter and jelly.  
This is really one of favorites.  I probably make this one at least twice a week.  I mean, how can you go wrong with the flavors of a PB&J?? ;)
