Healthy Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie
Healthy Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie recipe — it’s decadent, rich, sweet and creamy, yet refined sugar free, low fat, high protein, high fiber and gluten free!
This is the perfect recipe for the PB&J lover out there (and um, that’s all of us, right?). This smoothie is packed with peanut butter flavor and is perfectly sweet and satisfying, just like a PB&J sandwich, but without any of the unnatural peanut butter stuffed with hydrogenated oils or grape jelly packed with white sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, and food dyes.
This smoothie is wholesome and nutritious and OH-MY-FREAKIN’-MIGHTY-GOODNESS delicious! It’s surprisingly filling too. Usually smoothies don’t keep me full for very long but this one kept me full for a solid three hours… and with my cheetah metabolism, that’s pretty much unheard of 😉
Healthy Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie
- 227g (1 cup) Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt
- ½ cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 2 packets Natural Sweetener (Truvia, stevia, etc.)
- 25 Green Grapes
- 60g (½ cup) Peanut Flour
- 4 Ice Cubes
- In a high-speed blender (I used my Vitamix), add the Greek yogurt, milk, sweetener and grapes.
- Blend until you no longer see the grape skins.
- Add the peanut flour and ice and blend until completely smooth.
- Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for later.
This Healthy Peanut Butter and Jelly smoothie sure doesn’t taste refined sugar free, low fat, and high protein in the slightest.
It’s perfectly sweet, rich and creamy 🙂
With love and good eats,
Where did the Print button go? I’d like to print this recipe but can’t find the print button!!
Sorry about that! The program I use for the recipes is having a lot of issues (they actually shut down their entire brand last month). I added it back just now. Hope this helps! 🙂
This looks *AWESOME*! Is there by any chance any decent substitution for the Greek Yogurt? I’m not a fan of yogurt, Greek or otherwise. And would liquid Stevia be okay? Thanks!
Thanks so much! You can replace the Greek yogurt with ricotta or cottage cheese. They are thick like Greek yogurt, but they aren’t as tangy and flavorful as yogurt. Hope this helps! 🙂
Never have I seen peanut flour before.. I definitely need to get my hands on some. What a delicious (and surprisingly healthy) smoothie too!
i was able to buy peanut flour on nuts.com at a reasonable price. going shopping today or tomorrow for the rest of the ingredients to try the recipe myself.
Yeah….29 carbs for a single drink is NOT low carb…very misleading.
Even 24 carbs minus the fiber…low carb is considered eating under 20-40 grams of carbs TOTAL a day…
Hey Nicole, I never stated that this recipe was low carb… I said it’s refined sugar free, low fat, and high protein 😀
Yes, you are correct. Someone linked this recipe off another site that listed yours under low 5 or 6 other carb smoothies (found it on Pinterest). Not your fault, sorry!
Wonder why FitnessMagazine.com calls this a low-carb smoothie? This one has 24g net carbs, and thats a pretty big amount of ketoers and even for decent low-carbers, But I am definitely using this smoothie on a normal-carb day (I am doing carb cycling, alternating between low carb and normal carb days). Thanks a ton for this idea!

Why not use strawberries instead of grapes. They are much more low carb. Just suggesting.

Love me some P&J!!!
But I don’t handle dairy well….any other substitutes for the yogurt or cottage cheese??
I may have found a solution…..Silken Tofu!!
Genius idea! That, or a vegan yogurt would work as well 🙂

I was going to make this for my kids but would prefer not using the artificial sweeteners, any suggestion on a good substitute? Maybe honey?
Stevia and Truvia are both natural sweeteners, not artificial, but if you don’t want to use them that’s fine! Honey will work too — I’d start with 1 tablespoon and add more to taste from there 🙂

The PB&J smoothie recipe sounds awesome. How many servings does the recipe make?
This recipe makes 2 servings 🙂
Can you use pb powder instead of peanut flour?
PB powder and peanut flour are the same thing. If you’re talking about PB2, PB2 just has added sugar and salt while peanut flour is 100% peanuts. It shouldn’t make too much of a difference in final flavor though 🙂
I couldn’t find peanut flour, but found Almond flour. However at 80 cal per 2 TBS. This recipe calls for 1/2 cup of the flour which would come to 16 TBS= 1280 cal from flour alone for two servings! That is 640 calories 😳. How many calories is Peanut flour and what brand do you recommend?
Peanut flour and almond flour are not the same thing and are not interchangeable. Peanut flour has 110 calories for ¼ cup! And the product I use is linked right in the recipe (just click on the ingredient) 🙂

Can you tell me what the equivalent measure of stevia is in teaspoons please?
Or the gram weight of the packets used in this recipes?
Thank you xx
Each packet weighs 2g, so you’ll need 4g of Truvia or stevia packets 🙂
Thank you Jessica xx
Has anyone tried this without adding the sweetener? Does the vanilla almond milk and fruit make it sweet enough if you have an adult palate and aren’t a big sweet eater? I try not to use sweeteners (real or artificial).
