Blueberry Peanut Butter Smoothie
This dreamy, creamy, blueberry peanut butter smoothie is perfect for breakfast or snacking! Filled with frozen blueberries, peanut butter and sweetened with a bit of honey, it’s healthy and delicious. Dairy free and gluten free with vegan option.
This smoothie was created out of pure desperation.
I woke up starving last weekend and realized that we were completely out of food. Eggs? Gone. English muffins? Nowhere to be found.
I decided I was too hungry (and grouchy) to attempt a trip to the grocery store before eating, so gosh darn it I was going to make something out of a little milk, yogurt and frozen blueberries.
Smoothie it was.
Except the smoothie seemed a little plain to me, so why not throw in some peanut butter? You know, kind of like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich?
My husband thought I was a little crazy for doing it, and I probably wasn’t in the best frame of mind at the time, but hey, why not? Turns out that I really liked the end result.
The hint of peanut butter and sweetness from the honey made this smoothie seem a little special (but still with the same base that I love with all the frozen berries and yogurt).
So if you’re feeling a little adventurous give this a try. It wasn’t my husband’s thing – he likes his smoothie with all fruit – but I figure that some of you may be like me and will enjoy this.
