Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Breakfast Smoothie

Looking for a quick option for a healthy breakfast? I was too.

Normally, our morning meal consists of Power Eggs, but I wanted something I could make and take with me on the go.

Searching for ingredients I had on hand,  this version of peanut butter and jelly smoothie seemed to fit my needs perfectly!

  • It is full of my favorite fruits.
  • Is packed with protein from peanut butter and Greek yogurt.
  • And has Almond Milk too.

A quick portable breakfast that also tastes great.

Our recipe is fast and easy making it perfect to start your day with a filling breakfast or to enjoy as a post-workout recovery drink. 

I like to use blueberries, the “jelly” part of this drink, but you can use any kind of berry you like. I've even been known to use a bunch of mixed berries and it tastes great too.

I also like to use certain ingredients in this recipe, but you can most certainly have substitutions such as

  • Almond Milk can be substituted with any milk- cashew, soy, oat or just plain milk.
  • Peanut butter can be substituted with any nut butter like almond, cashew, pecan, etc. 
  • Greek Yogurt can be switched out for soy, almond, or regular yogurt. 

What Ingredients Will You need to make this smoothie?

Most of the ingredients you will need will most likely be in your pantry already.

A few years ago, I found this awesome powdered peanut butter and loved bringing it to work for a snack! It's brilliant- mix the PBFit powdered peanut butter with water until you find your desired consistency! Easy, right?! It comes in chocolate flavor too! 

Perfect for sandwiches or to dip sliced apples.

What Tools Should you use to make a protein smoothie?

To make this quick PB&J protein smoothie or any smoothie, you'll need to have a few things on hand.

You can use a regular blender, like my Ninja Blender or you can use a Bullet-Blender which has a built-in cup or this option of an immersion blender that is easy cleanup.

Whatever type of blender you have will work to create this thick, creamy PB & J protein drink!

This smoothie looks perfect for a breakfast, Kelly! I actually never made a smoothie with yogurt as I am more fond of green smoothies, but I will give this a try :)

It does make a great breakfast. I like using yogurt when mixing chocolate, peanut butter and banana- it is more like a breakfast shake! Let me know if you try it.
