Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie
This South Beach Phase Two smoothie is a great way to start the day or a great boost of protein after training. It tastes just like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! (without the bread, obviously)
I have been wanting to have smoothies again, but the ones I like are super heavy on the fruit sugars.  If I have that I'm going to want to go on a sugar rampage that would make Godzilla look like a mild breeze through Tokyo.  I stumbled upon a Banana Split Smoothie recipe (and I posted it on my facebook page).  We gave it a shot because I was hoping the peanut butter would add enough protein so that it doesn't spike my sugar cravings. The verdict?  Meh.  It was missing something. So after a little experimentation, I came up with this version which makes two servings
No Jelly Required

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie

Ingredients for 2 servings
  • 1 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt: I like Chobani 0%
  • 1/3 cup natural unsalted peanut butter
  • 2 medium very ripe bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 teaspoon honey- optional
  1. Put milk, yogurt and peanut butter in a blender and blend until incorporated
  2. Add frozen banana slice, raspberries and honey (optional) and blend until combined

  1. I did something very similar on Friday, but it was too banana-ey for me. I did like the idea of berry and peanut butter so I might try it again sans banana.
