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?
