Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Smoothie

Who doesn’t love a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch? One person who can’t get enough of them is my husband. In fact, he takes one to work daily.  (Don’t worry, he uses Ezekiel bread full of protein and natural peanut butter.)  It’s not the most exciting lunch in the world but it makes him happy!

Today’s recipe is perfect for breakfast, lunch or even a post-workout snack.  We are in the middle of a heat wave full of back to back 90+ degree days so this recipe hit the spot. Cool, creamy and full of fiber, antioxidants and protein – this meal in a glass will keep you full for hours.  Want to lower the calories and make it as a snack? Skip the oats, protein powder or both. Make it your own.

Your straw is waiting.
