A peanut butter and jelly smoothie may not sound so appetizing to you at first, but it is quite a tasty treat. I must first confess that the smoothie contains peanut butter, but no jelly. Frozen raspberries take the place of jelly in this recipe.
Raspberries are not only full of vitamin C, they are also full of fiber. The half cup of raspberries in this smoothie contains 8 grams of fiber. Fiber keeps us full and aids in healthy digestion. Most adults should get about 25-35 grams of fiber a day, but Americans average about 15 grams a day.
Add protein-rich Greek yogurt and a little healthy fat from the peanut butter and here you have a “stick to your ribs” smoothie.
Just combine all ingredients in a blender or use an immersion blender (my favorite way to make smoothies) and blend until smooth.
Have you noticed how much I adore pink and teal kitchen items?
