Quick PB&J Protein Smoothie Recipe
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.
