PB&J Smoothie

I love a good peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich!
This smoothie has the same flavors, which is really nostalgic and satisfying.

Have I told you how much I love my new Vitamix? I love the Vitamix blender!!!!
It blends seeds and greens into a perfectly smooth drink, and it is awesome for making your own nut butters and hummus, too!

PB&J Smoothie


1 cup almond milk (or any milk)
2 heaping Tablespoons peanut butter (or any nut butter)
1 cup frozen strawberries (you can use fresh instead, just add ice, too)

Optional add ins (these add additional nutrients and bulk the smoothie up into a meal):
1 banana (I used a sliced frozen banana)
1 large handful spinach leaves (you can't even taste them! I love adding greens to a smoothie)
2 Tablespoons hemp seeds (these are like chia seeds, and have tons of nutritional value! Read more HERE)

Add all ingredients to blender.  I do the milk first at the bottom, then everything else on top.
Blend, blend, blend!
