PB&J Smoothie

I made a really yummy smoothie yesterday morning.

I’m calling it a PB&J Smoothie. Ironically, it has neither peanut butter nor jelly in it.


Work with me, here.

Instead, it’s fruit-based and has sunflower butter (my obsession!) in it.

PB&J Smoothie


makes one smoothie

Into the mix went:

  • 3 ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup (ish) frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup (ish) frozen mango chunks


  • 1/3 cup (ish) frozen chopped spinach
  • 1/3 cup (ish) Chobani vanilla 0% yogurt


  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tbs unflavored whey protein powder
  • 1 tbs sunflower butter


All blended up…

And then you get this!


Wait. That’s sort of ugly. Not even just “sort of,” actually. That smoothie looks beaten by an ugly stick.

Is this better?


You know what? Don’t worry about how it looks. That’s not important. It’s full of good-for-you ingredients, it tastes delicious, and it keeps you full for hours.

That’s what’s important!

And no, people, you cannot taste the spinach. I get this question every single time. 🙂

What healthy breakfasts have you been making lately?
