How To Make a Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie
I tried a few different ways to nail the PB & J flavor for this smoothie. I used cashews and rolled oats to get the bready flavor, and I experimented with fresh strawberries, frozen strawberries, and strawberry juice. But, it was all getting a bit complicated and time consuming, and I wanted to ensure that you could make this smoothie quickly in any blender.
Making a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich takes less than 5 minutes, and so you’ve just got to be able to blend up a peanut butter and jelly smoothie in the same amount of time or less! Right?
So, I went nuclear and pulled out a fruit-sweetened strawberry jam to get the depth of flavor that is required for a respectable peanut butter and jelly smoothie.
I’ve never added jam to a smoothie before. But, if we’re not opposed to putting strawberry jelly in our sandwich, why should be be opposed to putting it in out smoothie right?
So, I landed on this blend:
- 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/3 cup unsalted peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons strawberry jelly
- 2 cups frozen strawberries
To make a healthy….ER peanut butter and jelly smoothie…
Use Fruit-Sweetened Strawberry Jam
There are some great fruit sweetened strawberry jams that are available.
My favorite strawberry jam that is widely available around the world is the St Dalfour strawberry jam which just contains strawberries, fruit juice concentrate (grapes and dates), fruit pectin, and lemon juice. The Crofter’s organic strawberry jam also uses grape juice to sweeten the strawberries.
Use Smooth Peanut Butter
When it comes to making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, you’re either a smooth peanut butter person or chunky peanut butter person. But, when it comes to making a peanut butter and jelly smoothie, you’ve just got to grab for the smooth peanut butter if you want a smooth texture, particularly if you’re using a conventional blender. I developed this smoothie for the KitchenAid K150 blender when I was the global ambassador for KitchenAid blenders. It really is the best entry-level blender I have seen. I really love it. And, it gets this blend really smooth. But, you can use any blender to make this recipe.
