PB&J Power Smoothie

This tasty recipe is a spin on a lunchtime classic, but it's in a glass instead of on a sandwich! I'll sometimes have it as an afternoon snack, if I know dinner is a long way off.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups dairy-free milk unsweetened
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1.5 tablespoons natural peanut butter no sugar added
  • 1/2 carrot coarsely chopped (yes, you read that right! It adds a hint of sweetness and is a great way to hide a veggie!)
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries or raspberries
  • 1/2 frozen banana peeled
  • 1 Medjool date (optional) pitted

Instructions

  1. Combine first five ingredients in a blender in the order listed for about 30 seconds. Add frozen fruit and date, if you'd like some sweetness, and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • To up the protein count, I will sometimes add a scoop or two of Vital Proteins collagen peptides.
  • Trader Joe's sells gluten free rolled oats in a big blue bag.
  • Dates add sweetness. If you don't have dates, add about 2 tsp pure maple syrup or honey, but dates work best. Let me know how it turns out if you use maple syrup or honey!
  • The only ingredients in the peanut butter should be peanuts...and maybe salt. 2 tablespoons really seemed to do the trick, but you can always start with less and then add more!
