Vegan peanut butter and jelly smoothie

If you read this blog regularly, you know that I tend to get into lunch ruts. See this post. Or this one. Or this. I’ll stop there because this just got sad. Also, now I’m hungry.

My newest lunch obsession is this banana-free smoothie (unbelievably hard to find if you have a sensitivity) from Protein Bar.

Peanut butter and jelly smoothie, inspired by Protein Bar’s Pier-Nut-Butter-and-Jelly Smoothie, serves one.

-1 cup non-dairy milk (I used coconut milk, but almond or soy will work too)
-3/4 cup frozen strawberries
-1/4 cup roasted unsalted peanuts (you can also use 2 T of natural peanut butter, if you are strong enough to keep such things in the house – I’m not)
-1/4 cup frozen blueberries
-1 scoop protein powder (I used Sunwarrior vanilla)
-2 medjool dates

This is hardly a recipe. But who wants to cook in the summer anyway?

Gather all your ingredients:

Add to a blender:

Blend on high for about 30 seconds to a minute, until your peanuts are blended. Enjoy!

Now onto my next lunch rut! Any suggestions?
