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  😉

  1. Where did the Print button go? I’d like to print this recipe but can’t find the print button!!

  2. 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!

  3. Never have I seen peanut flour before.. I definitely need to get my hands on some. What a delicious (and surprisingly healthy) smoothie too!

  4. 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…

  5. 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!

  6. 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!

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

  12. 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?

    Thanks!
