It’s childhood in a glass with this peanut butter &jelly smoothie. Yep . . . a glass full of health and happiness with a sprinkle of innocence.

A peanut butter and jelly sandwich was a staple in my household growing up. I used to be all about the bread when I was a kid, but know as an adult, my stomach can’t take the gluten. Even gluten-free bread makes me feel terrible and inflamed. I wanted to recreate my favorite childhood sandwich but healthier. After many trial and errors, you will be pleasantly surprised how close it tastes like the sandwich without the bread.

DIRECTIONS

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. You can add more ice for an ice cream texture. Pour into a fancy glass and drizzle with peanut butter and sliced strawberries. If your peanut butter is thick, scoop a tablespoon or two in a pan and heat up; it should be easier to drizzle when warm. Then add sliced strawberries on top and enjoy!

Benefits of a Peanut Butter and Strawberry Smoothie

Peanut butter has protein and healthy fat, meaning this smoothie will keep you satiated longer. The peanuts also have vitamin E that protects your body from free radical damage. The strawberries are high in vitamin C and have tons of antioxidants to correct free radicals as well.

Fun Fact

Did you know that food historians do not know exactly when the peanut butter and jelly sandwich was first prepared? There have been no advertisements or mentions of peanut butter and jelly before the 1940s. Peanut butter wasn't invented until 1890, and it became a hit at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis. The first reference of peanut butter paired with jelly on bread to be published in the United States was by Julia Davis Chandler in 1901 in the Boston Cooking-School Magazine of Culinary Science and Domestic Economics.
