    PB & J Smoothie

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Oh wow! I had a Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie yesterday at Earth Fare. It was all I could eat after the root canal. Still hurt today, so thought I'd try to make my own.

    Result? Yum!

    Ingredients:
    Frozen vanilla low-fat yogurt from Blue Bell
    Two spoonfuls of natural peanut butter
    Part of a banana
    Small amount of strawberry-rhubarb jelly. (Fresh strawberries would be better, but I don't have any).

    Mix in a blender.

    So good! I made a small amount. Good thing. I suppose I should calculate the calories, but I prefer to live in denial for the moment

    Sounds pretty good.

    I'm now wondering if I could do a Nutella version with strawberries...
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    Good plan.

    I've never tried Nutella. Sounds, dangerous!

    Tried it today for lunch, with raspberries and a whole banana and ice to make up for the lack of yogurt. The yogurt would probably prevent it from splattering itself all over the blender...But what I managed to salvage was tasty!

    Yummmm, sounds good! I wish I could risk buying a jar of Nutella, peanut butter is hard enough to resist eating out of the jar

    I tend to buy bananas in bunches and then not get them eaten before they get overripe so I chunk them and freeze them in portion sized bags. chopped up in the blender they are like vanilla soft serve ice cream and you can use them for a base in all kinds of smoothies. I do not allow myself to buy nutella in the jar, but sometimes you can find two serving size packets . Those are bad enough.

    But I still swear by frozen bananas!

    This sounds great. All it's missing is some whey protein and a spoonful of flax seed!

    You can put anything in

    I like the Bolthouse Farms Mocha Cappuccino. It's whey protein, and the flavor does a lot for this.

    Plus, yogurt is a good protein source, though I haven't ever looked up the breakdown for how complete it is. Dairy is usually complete.

    Non-fat is even better as far as the protein content is concerned as it is more concentrated. This thread is encouraging me to get out my big blender since I haven't managed yet to fix my smoothie blender

    Bake a batch of choc chip cookies and take them, along with the blender, to somewhere where there are lots of people - work, gym, bike shop - wherever you feel comfortable. Announce that the cookies are the prize for the person that can disassemble the blender.

    Problem solved.
