pb&j smoothie

 

Let me just say first that there is no jelly or bread in this smoothie.

Because that would be gross.

But it tastes just like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Crazy right?

And it’s good for you.

If you like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches you will love this.

Promise.

I’ve been making this smoothie for a while but just recently figured out how to make it correctly.

Lemme explain…

Up until recently, I was pretty much just dumping everything into my blender and letting it whirl around for several minutes until everything was blended.

The problem was that the oats never really blended up.

I never minded chewing an oat here and there while I was drinking my smoothie but I knew there had to be a better way.

There is.

Now, I toss my oats in first along with the wheat germ and pulse until they’re powdery and super fine. Then I add everything else and blend again.

This one maneuver has completely changed my life.

Okay, so it didn’t really change my life but it sure made this particular smoothie better.

If you want the flavor of the smoothie to be as close as possible to a pb&j sandwich, use frozen strawberries.

FYI: Dark purple blueberries + bright green spinach = gray smoothies.
