This single-serve smoothie is perfect for a busy morning when you want a quick breakfast that fills you up til lunch. 4 ingredients keeps it simple, tasting like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich keeps it delicious. Oh yeah.
Rise and shine! How was your Easter weekend? I’m still in a Reese’s Egg coma over here. No regrets.
I ran into my sister-in-law Sandi at the store a couple days ago. This never happens, even though we live 4 minutes from each other and shop at the same place. She was there to buy candy for a special Easter basket for my mom. (My mom is the one always going over the top with Easter baskets–even polling adults for their favorite candy, because why SHOULDN’T adults get Easter baskets??)
Anyway, Sandi decided that it was time for Janice (my mom) to get her own special basket, so she asked me what kind of candy my mom likes best. I told her that one time I was in the checkout line with my mom and I pointed to the candy and asked what her favorite was. My mom pointed to the top and said, “Let’s start with THIS row…”
I also told Sandi that once I asked my mom what her favorite nuts were. Mom said chocolate covered almonds, and pecans. But only in pecan pie.
Sandi ended up buying her a giant (and I do mean giant) Reese’s bunny. How can you go wrong?
You also can’t go wrong with a slurpy ol’ smoothie for breakfast. Especially when that smoothie tastes like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I’m not even kidding guys.
Today I’m guest posting for my friend Melanie from Melanie Makes, who just had a baby! So exciting! To read more about why you need lots of high-calorie peanut butter in your smoothies if you’re nursing (hint: it’s so that you don’t start eating your shirt collar in desperation), head on over to Melanie Makes to get the recipe! (UPDATE: I’ve since added the recipe below. Enjoy!)
Raspberry Peanut Butter Smoothie
- 1 & 1/2 cups frozen raspberries
- 2 inches of a banana
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 6 tablespoons ice water
- fresh raspberries to garnish, optional
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. You may need to scrape down the sides a couple times.
- This recipe makes about 10-11 very filling ounces.
I didn’t like it at all. I think the peanut butter ruined it.
I’m sorry it wasn’t for you Jordan!
It was very good but i think next time i miggt add a bit of honey just to sweeten it a little
I think your mom and I have a lot in common. I spend a serious amount of time in front of the candy section trying to pick out just what I want when really what I want is one from every row. I can’t even imagine what a PB&J smoothie tastes like, but it looks and sounds so refreshing AND it’s full of protein so double win!
Now this is my kind of smoothie! Looks delicious! And yay congrats to Melanie! I need to head over there and say congrats. ;-)
I never would have thought about making a smoothie like this, but I mean, I love peanut butter and jelly and raspberry jam is my favorite! And I love that this is single serving too, just perfect for me when hubby is at work!
yes to all the Reese’s peanut butter eggs. . this is why I am on Salad duty all week. . for myself. . heading over now for the recipe!
I sure could use something healthy in my life right about now. I ate far too many Starburst jelly beans and now I’m working my way through a bag of Twizzlers. Send help!
Sweet! I love smoothies! And that vibrant color!
Haha, this is the perfect protein-filled smoothie for nursing mamas! Going to have to head over and check it out!
It was actually a giant Reese’s egg they got her, and I think that means a better peanut-filling to chocolate ratio. These smoothies are so simple and delicious – great picture!
EVEN BETTER. I don’t think there would ever be a Reeses Egg that was too big for me. Thanks Eric!
I don’t know about ratios, but that giant egg is delicious! So nice to be on the receiving end of Easter candy – but I bet this smoothie is a little healthier :)
A little. Maybe. I guess. Though I hear Reese’s eggs have lots of protein.
