Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein Smoothie.

A thick, creamy, healthy smoothie reminiscent of your favorite childhood sandwich. With 23 grams of pure protein, it will keep you full for hours.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein Smoothie. Thick, creamy, healthy, and 23 grams of protein. sallysbakingaddiction

Smoothies and milkshakes are the only thing helping my recent cold.  Kevin got sick last week and I caught the little bug from him. I never get sick!  Now, as I’m pushing my final cookbook deadline, I’m drinking my vitamins left and right to stay focused and healthy!

My recent obsession? Good ole PB&J.  There is nothing like the two together, right? 

Except, of course, for this.  ♥ 

Peanut Butter

Love Peanut Butter & Jelly

This drink is practically pure protein. I made it on Friday afternoon with no intention of feeding my muscles 23 grams of the stuff. That’s right – a whopping 23 grams in 1 huge (HUGE!) smoothie.  It’s not your ordinary smoothie that will have you starving 5 minutes later. In fact, this holds me over for hours!

I call it my “Protein Punch”
  • 6 oz cup greek yogurt → 18 grams
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk → 1 gram (even more if you use skim milk!)
  • 1 Tablespoon Skippy natural peanut butter → 4 grams

When I sipped this drink on Friday afternoon, I had no plans to share the recipe on my blog. But oh my gosh. It is TOO GOOD to keep from you! And the ingredients are SO simple.  Nothing fancy, nothing requiring another trip to the grocery store, nothing you need a dictionary for.

The consistency is that of a milkshake. A fruity, peanut buttery milkshake.  It’s creamy, thick, and smooth.  I needed a spoon to enjoy it before it began to melt, then it was time for some adorable straws.

The secret to its thickness? Greek yogurt and frozen banana.  Don’t worry, you won’t even taste the banana underneath the peanut butter and berries.

Are you aware of my obsession with frozen bananas?  I put them into all of my blended drinks.  Or I just whip up some frozen bananas with a touch of milk to make a two-ingredient, healthy, vegan, gluten-free, vanilla soft serve with no added sugar.  That stuff is amazing. Read about it here.

With the Greek yogurt + frozen banana, add some unsweetened almond milk, frozen berries, and creamy peanut butter.  There is room for substitutions here.  Use your favorite creamy milk – cow’s milk, rice milk, soy milk, coconut milk would all be delicious.  Use frozen raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, cherries – any sort of berry you want.  I prefer to use frozen berries because they won’t thin out the smoothie like fresh berries would.

And for the peanut butter? Use homemade honey-roasted, natural style, crunchy, creamy, flavored, any of the 10 jars of peanut butter I know you have in your pantry right now.

(If you’re anything like me, of course.)

Note: the 23 grams of protein may go up or down depending on which type of peanut butter or milk you use.

I seriously want to drink this smoothie for the rest of my life.  With all that protein, the taste of peanut butter, berries, and its thick, creamy texture = I’m in heaven.  I added 1 cup of spinach to mine yesterday and it instantly made me feel better.   (You can’t taste the greens!)

Go ahead, drink your favorite childhood sandwich. And feel good about doing it! Now excuse me while I go make this for the third time in three days.

    Oh my gosh Sally I have SO missed your blog over the past 3 weeks. I have been incredibly busy and haven’t gotten a chance to post or read other blogs! It hasn’t been pleasant because blogging is one of the highlights of my day every day so going without it is tough. It’s so funny because I’ve been making a really similar pb&j smoothie that I’m obsessed with. It’s just 1 tbsp almond butter, 1 cup spinach, 1 small banana, 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk and 3/4 cup blueberries. It certainly lacks the protein but it’s still really tasty! It’s so similar to your recipe! I need to try it with Greek yogurt though….

    I saw this recipe on Pinterest a day or so ago and like many things repinned it for “later use” and filed it with a bunch of stuff that I hope to one day get around to trying. Last night when I was trying to get my gameplan for today’s long work day I figured why not try this out for breakfast? Sally, this was so quick and easy! I already had everything in the house, which is usually half my battle, and it took seconds to make. It was soooooo good, I couldn’t believe how much it tasted like a PB&J and how rich and creamy it was! Thanks for sharing it :)

    This is the first smoothie I’ve tried that I actually like! I did have to use vanilla flavored Greek yogurt (can’t quite stomach the plain yet), but I’ve had one the past two mornings. Yum! Any chance you might offer a substitution for the banana? I love the texture of the smoothie, so hate to mess with it, but not a huge fan of bananas all the time. I love the mugs too, but I tend to drink my on the go, so I got a plastic travel Mason jar. :)

      So happy you loved this smoothie Meghan! There isn’t really a proper substitution for the banana without sacrificing its creaminess. You could try more yogurt and milk, but it won’t be the same. Maybe frozen yogurt? But then it wouldn’t be as healthy.

    Thank you Sally, for another delicious and nutritious recipe! I took your advice, and added in a cup of greens (we had baby spinach in the fridge). You can’t even taste it, and since we used blueberries as our frozen berry, the drink turned a gorgeous purple color. Both of my three year olds slammed theirs, ok- as did I. Thank you again Sally for helping me feed my little ones wholesome and tasty treats.

      You definitely cannot taste the greens at all if you add them! That’s what I love about this smoothie – hides all of the “healthy” flavors. So glad the little ones approve. :)

      Hope you enjoyed the smoothie, Mo! And even though you didn’t eat much PBJ when you were younger, at least you’re falling in love with it now. ;)

    So… Ive made this smoothie for breakfast the last four or so days! Basically saying I LOVE it! My two year son loves it too. And on another note, I look forward to your posts everyday and wish there were more hours in the day in order for me to make everything you blog about. Thanks for the wonderful ideas, skinny choices & delicious recipes.

    Hi Sally! This looks so delicious. Question: if you wanted to skip the dairy, could you do more almond milk in place of the yogurt? I’m sure it would be less thick and creamy… What about adding protein powder? Thanks, love your blog!

      Hi Lori, I don’t like protein powder so I don’t use it in my recipes. I’m sure you could add it to your smoothie though. Yes, you could use more milk instead of yogurt, keeping in mind it may not be as creamy.

    Question: Can i use regular yogurt(flavored or unflavored?) instead of Greek Yogurt? And your Detox Smoothie was amazing!

      Hi Dominic – yes, you may use regular yogurt.

    Sally, since you’ve posted this, I must make this smoothie 4-5 times a week. Absolutely delicious, and I don’t usually like smoothies very much! I can’t live without this delicious smoothie now! The only difference is I don’t measure the peanut butter, I just scoop in a big ol’ spoonful :P Thank you so much for sharing!

      I never measure the PB either, but I had to be exact for the blog recipe. Anyway, sounds like you love this smoothie as much as I do. That makes me glad! :)

    I just made this as a mid-morning pick-me-up. I had to use vanilla yogurt because I didn’t have greek yogurt on hand, a mix of raspberries and blueberries, and I added one cup of spinach. Totally delicious! :)

      Any yogurt is great for this smoothie! It’s one of my favorite things to make when I want something refreshing and quick. Thanks Jamie!

    Oh Sally, I made this with my new Ninja prep blender I got for Christmas with some blueberry Greek yogurt, frozen bananas and raspberries, and chunky peanut butter. Absolutely delish–better than the sandwich. Mmmmmm :) Thanks for sharing!!!

    Wow, when I read the recipe I thought it would be good, but WOW! Thank you for a great tasting, high protien smoothie! I love the fact that you are using natural ingredients, that chalky taste is intolerable some(most)times!
    THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

      I just cannot get on board with protein powder. Have never found one I liked! You’re welcome for this recipe. I make it all the time!

    any suggestions for banana substitutes? not such a banana fan but i see it in a lot of your smoothies

      I’d say frozen yogurt would be the best choice – or even more yogurt with a little ice (though that would make it semi-slushy). I use banana in my smoothies for its creamy, thick consistency.
