Healthy Peanut Butter ‘n Jelly Protein Smoothie

Helloooo!

I’m a daily smoothie drinker, so I try to switch up my ingredients as often as I can. Lately, I’ve been really into peanut butter and banana smoothies (YUM!), but I wanted to change up the ingredients to make it a sure-fire 10/10. I feel like I’ve nailed down a recipe that truly emulates the peanut butter ‘n jelly experience, and I’m so excited to share it with you!

Here’s what you’ll need for ONE smoothie…

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries (the ‘jelly’)
  • 1 tbsp of peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup of quick oats (the ‘bread’)
  • 1 scoop (~30g) of your favourite protein powder
  • 1 tsp of cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup of almond milk
  • A handful of ice

Approximate Calories: 450

Protein: 40g

Add all your ingredients to your blender, then blend until smooth. I try to blend my smoothie for about 1.5 minutes, to give the oats enough time to break down & soften. Works great as a breakfast alternative, since it’s rich in carbs and protein. I love drinking one of these smoothies an hour before my workout because it gives me a burst of energy from the carbs + sustainable energy from the fats.

Enjoy!
