Peanut-Butter-and-Jelly-Smoothie

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie

This comforting smoothie will remind you of school packed lunches and the sandwiches that mama used to make. This is one that the kids will also love the sound of but they would never be able to tell that it is actually healthy, filling and a great snack option after sports or a workout. You can also easily make this smoothie an even “skinnier” version by substituting full milk for half fat or semi-skimmed.

Using frozen fruit allows you to chill your smoothie without having to add ice which compromises the consistency and the taste in some cases, plus the two servings act as two of your recommended five-a-day. The banana gives a creamy and thick texture to the smoothie making it take longer to drink and leave you feeling fuller afterwards. The use of milk as the liquid base is also a great source of calcium for the kids (bear in mind that if you substitute for half fat or skimmed the calcium content will be reduced).

 

Smoothie Benefits

    • The peanut butter provides essential proteins and potassium which are not only crucial for muscle repair after exercise but it also lowers the risk of stroke, heart disease and high blood pressure.

 

    • Peanut butter is also useful for curbing hunger pangs and suppressing hunger during diet or weight loss therefore having one of these smoothies as a snack will help you avoid reaching for the biscuit tin.

 

    • The porridge oats are the “sandwich” part of the PB&J that adds an extra fiber element for bowel health and easy energy which makes this smoothie the perfect recovery drink or a quick, easy breakfast for those who have a busier lifestyle.
