Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie

August 16, 2012

Day 16 – gluten and…uh…gluten-free. I sorta had a little dairy indiscretion the other day. I really like dairy. So much harder to give up than gluten. Well, I suppose that’s just my opinion, but I really like butter, and cream cheese, and butter. Milk is pretty good too. I’ll share what caused my dairy fall soon, but for now here is a delightfully irresistible smoothie that is totally gluten and dairy-free! Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie…..

Yup, you heard me. Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie. I’m a closet peanut butter and jelly lover so this is the ultimate smoothie for me. A little of this and a little of that…and I ended up with a protein-packed tasty drink that tastes remarkably reminiscent of a pb&j. First try people. Not that I ever need multiple attempts to get a recipe right (*snort*).

I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did. Gluten? Who needs ya!

Author: Becky Bakes
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 8 large frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup milk (I used almond/coconut)
  • 3 tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • just a bit of honey/stevia to taste
Instructions
  1. Throw all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Serve, enjoy, repeat tomorrow.

P.S. Full disclosure: I wrote the above post a few days ago. Yesterday, I attended a little family gathering (fun!) where I proceeded to eat a delicious hamburger. On a bun. A very gluten-full bun. Accidentally. I kid you not. I feel great…other than the fact that I can’t seem to maintain a simple 3-week diet challenge! Sheesh.

I know exactly how you feel. There’s just nothing like butter, cream, or cheese. This smoothie looks amazing! I love peanut butter anything, so it’s perfect for me.

I would have a difficult time giving up dairy too…butter and cheese are just.so.good. Way to keep at it though :) This sounds delicious!
