If you’re reading this and you’re from America, chances are, you grew up eating peanut butter and jelly. And chances are, the PB&Js you grew up eating were filled with sugary, processed peanut butter and jelly on nutritionless white bread. But PB&J can actually be healthy – especially if you drink it.

This peanut butter and jelly smoothie is a healthy adult version of your favorite childhood bagged lunch.

Peanut butter powder (or peanut butter), almond milk, frozen bananas and strawberries, avocado and flaxseed, as well as a few other ingredients to round it out, transform the PB&J into a complete, nutrition-packed breakfast.

Who says kids get to have all the fun?

  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds
  • 1/3 avocado
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 serving vanilla protein (optional)
