If you dislike the sound of someone slurping through their straw to try to get every last little drop out of their cup, then you probably shouldn’t make these PB&J smoothies. My kids absolutely LOVE them! And it all started when on a recent trip to buy groceries from Earth Fare we decided to also have lunch in their little cafe.
While paying for our sushi I noticed that they had a surprisingly good smoothie menu, so on a whim, I decided to order their PB&J smoothie for my girls (and me) to share. Well, that was a mistake…I should have gotten a large size for each of us! During the first 5 minutes of the lunch (which was as long as the smoothie lasted) all I could hear—aside from the slurping—was “I want more of it,” ”It’s my turn for some,” “she is drinking it all.” Need I say more?
I, of course, don’t have Earth Fare’s exact recipe so this is just my version that emulates theirs as best as I can. My daughters responded very similarly to this version so I would say it went over well. This is the best invention for kids since the original PB&J!!
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/3 cup apple juice
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 2 bananas (I like using 2, but if you only have 1 on hand, don't let it stop you!)
- 1 cup frozen berries or fresh
- 1 handful spinach optional
- ice (only if you use fresh berries)
- Mix well in a blender and serve cold with a straw.
