Move over, boring old PB&J sandwich, there's a new sheriff in town – the PB&J smoothie! Not only is it a delicious and satisfying way to get your snack on, but it's also packed with benefits that will make you feel like a superhero. Let's break it down:
First up, essential nutrients. This smoothie is like a multivitamin in a cup, with peanut butter providing protein, healthy fats, and fiber, while the berries add a hit of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Talk about a power couple!
Next, energy boost. Move over, coffee, because this smoothie is the real MVP when it comes to getting that morning pep in your step. Peanut butter brings the power of protein, while the natural sugars in the berries give you a quick jolt of energy to tackle whatever the day throws at you.
Third on our list is weight loss support. The peanut butter and berries combo is a perfect addition to any weight loss plan, thanks to the protein and healthy fats that keep you feeling full and satisfied. Say goodbye to junk food cravings and hello to your best self!
And last but not least, heart health. Peanut butter is a great source of heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which can help lower bad cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. Who knew a simple smoothie could pack such a punch?

- 1.5 tablespoons peanut butter / peanut butter powder
- 1 tablespoon flax seeds
- 3/4 cup milk

- To switch up the flavour, you can replace the peanut butter with 2 tablespoons of powdered peanut butter mixed with 1 1/2 tablespoons of water. This creates a lighter version of the recipe that still packs a punch of nutty flavour.
- If you're feeling adventurous, try swapping the frozen strawberries for frozen blackberries, raspberries, or blueberries for a different twist on the classic PB&J combo.
- This recipe is flexible when it comes to milk choices - feel free to use any type of dairy or nut milk that suits your preferences and dietary needs. Almond milk, soy milk, or even oat milk can all work well in this smoothie.
