Peanut butter and jelly smoothie is my new favorite thing to make.
One morning I was at a loss as to what I should have for breakfast. Breakfast is such a tough time for me because I spend so much energy trying to get food on the table for the kids that by the time I feel hungry myself, I’m too spent.
I’ve been making an effort to have healthy breakfasts because I feel like if you start the morning off right, the rest of the day kind of follows suit.
The first time I made this smoothie, I loved it so much I tried to drink it secretly. Then Caleb spotted me and said “We share smoothies mommy.” Busted.
I love smoothies for breakfasts because you can take them on the go with the kids, move from room to room, you don’t need utensils and you can sip on it throughout the morning.
This smoothie keeps me full and I feel kind of good about it because you can throw some leafy greens in there.I mean, I didn’t but technically you caaaan.

Smoothie Questions I get:
How to Make a Smoothie without Yogurt
Yogurt is definitely not needed for smoothies! This recipe for PB and J Smoothie has a mix of frozen banana, strawberries, seeds, nut butter, and your favorite milk. The frozen bananas make the smoothie ultra creamy and thick!
How to Use Chia Seeds in Smoothies
It’s so simple to add some chia seeds to your smoothie for an extra protein and fiber punch to your recipe! You can use white chia seeds or black chia seeds, whatever you have on hand!
How Much Chia Seeds to Use
I tend to just stick with 1 tablespoon per smoothie. I think it’s the perfect amount to make sure the chia seeds don’t get too overpowering or crunchy in the smoothie.
