This peanut butter and jelly smoothie is a great play on a childhood classic! It’s the perfect smoothie to get protein into a picky child too!
Kids can be insanely picky. If you live in our house, you know that adults can be ridiculously picky too. But we’re here to focus on the kids today. One day they will eat something and the next day, they say gross and there’s no way they would ever touch it. Even the most adventurous eaters go through moments where they want to be picky. Peanut Butter and Jelly recipes though seem to be foolproof.
My kids will eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches even when they refuse anything else, especially if I use cookie cutters to turn it in a shape. We’ve made a peanut butter and jelly smoothie bowl before and everyone gobbled it up. So today, we decided to share an equally home favorite – peanut butter and jelly smoothie recipe.
Is a peanut butter and jelly smoothie healthy?
The simple answer is yes. There’s no actual jelly in the recipe, so it’s not as loaded with sugar as you may think. We combine homemade peanut butter with strawberries and a banana, add in vanilla yogurt, almond milk, and honey. Just 6 ingredients in this recipe and none are overly processed foods. The non-dairy milk alternative is great healthy addition to a smoothie. Additionally, our sugar source is natural honey which has a host of health benefits.
Our girls gobbled up this peanut butter and jelly smoothie and even the picky adult in the house liked it too. Whether you have a picky little or big one, or you are trying to get more calories and protein in your little one for whatever reason, this peanut butter and jelly smoothie recipe is a great idea to try!
