Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie

I love a smoothie for breakfast. It’s light, it’s refreshing and it’s delicious! One of my favorite smoothies is a PB&J smoothie. This particular smoothie calls for almond butter, but if you like you can of course use peanut butter! The hemp powder adds extra protein while the chia or flax adds important omega 3’s. I chose almond butter over actual peanut butter because peanuts are one of the most common allergens, and almonds have more health benefits in the long run.

Recipe:

4 or 5 strawberries

2 tbsp almond butter

1 banana

1/2 cup coconut milk or soy milk

1 tsp hemp powder

1 tsp chia or flax seed

If you want this to be sweeter, add some agave or maple syrup. If you want a chocolate PB&J smoothie, add carob powder 1 tsp at a time until you have your desired chocolately-ness!
