My Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie is no Sandwich
I created this Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie for the kid in me. When I was young, I always thought PB&J sandwiches were overrated.
I preferred a sandwich with turkey or salami. Anything that wasn’t just sticky mush you needed a gallon of milk to wash down.
Then I grew up and realized peanut butter and jelly is, in fact, an incredible combo. They’re just better in other mediums.
PB&J in smoothie form? Fabulous.
Cold and refreshing, this Peanut Butter and Jelly smoothie is that sweet and salty we all crave.
I am shaking my head at the original lede from this post (written in March 2012). It’s horrendous.
Sandwiches? Salami? Ugh.
(These days, I make videos explaining why it’s not worth it to eat meat now.)
And here’s the original featured image. Less absurd, but still not great.
And the second attempt at a featured image sometime around 2014.
It remains an awesome recipe for anyone looking to change up their protein shake.

Useful tips for Peanut Butter and Jelly Shake
This is just a fancy way of making a new noyoke shake. But a couple of things:
- Use good peanut butter (or just peanuts). None of that Jiffy stuff.
- You can use any type of berries. Remember, though, less is more. (One type of berries is okay. Two types of berries is okay. Three types and you’ve gone overboard.)
