PB&J Smoothies

This is a really simple recipe that A and I whipped up this morning because he “wanted something CRAZY” for breakfast. So I made these smoothies that he ate along with some fruity pebble cereal. Crazy, indeed.

So here are your basic ingredients:

PB&J Smoothies: Cupcakesandcommentary Milk, 3 oz yogurt, peanut butter, banana, and either jelly or jam (not pictured). A picked apple jelly, but I added raspberry jam when I re-tested it and it was good!

And you also need a blender. The most important thing to making this is to put the jelly or jam in first and blend it for a good 30 seconds to a minute because it will break down the jelly/jam so you won’t have chunks of it in the smoothie.

And while your at it you might want to get some for the kid yelling from the highchair:

And at our house we serve smoothies in Star Wars cups with neon green straws. How we roll, that is.
