Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie Bowl

This Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie Bowl is so nutritious, but tastes like you’re eating a giant bowl of ice cream for breakfast!

Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie BowlYou guys, can we talk about smoothie bowls for a second? Specifically Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie Bowls? I know smoothie bowls are the trendiest thing to take over Instagram lately, but I suppose that’s why I can’t get over them. Well, there’s that, and it also makes my morning smoothie experience about 1,000 times more fun. This Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie Bowl is all kinds of awesome because it makes me feel like I’m eating a giant bowl of ice cream for breakfast.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie BowlHere’s the thing. I drink smoothies and protein shakes for breakfast probably 3 times a week. Every. Single. Week. They’re super healthy (obviously), a quick way to get protein and nutrients into your system first thing in the morning, easy for your system to digest, and they’re even a great way to use up those greens that are sitting in your fridge- just toss some spinach or kale in there and you’re in anti-oxidant city, which always makes me feel pretty good about myself in the morning.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie BowlBut no matter how many different flavor concoctions I come up with, sipping on a blended beverage can sometimes feel a little booooring repetitive. It’s probably the one-note texture thing, so smoothie bowls totally fix that problem because you can add all sorts of crunchiness and chewiness in terms of toppings, making your morning smoothie much more interesting. Some of my favorite toppings include:

fresh berries/fruit
nuts
hemp seeds (I sprinkle these on EVERYTHING. So good)
chia seeds
goji berries
cacao nibs
coconut
…the list goes on!

Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie BowlThis Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie Bowl couldn’t be easier to make and tastes dreamy. Use any kind of frozen berries you have on hand, as well as bananas to give it that unmistakably creamy consistency. I like to add maca powder for a little energy boost. I also love using Bell Plantation’s PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter. If you don’t have any regular peanut butter will work just fine too, but I love using PB2 because it blends up so easily and gives the smoothie a creamy consistency, AND it contains 85% fewer fat and calories than traditional peanut butter- works for me!

I stumbled across PB2 in my Love with Food snack subscription box. They’re an amazing company that helps people discover all-natural and organic snacks with a monthly box full of goodies. So many snacks. That you can feel good about snacking on! AND for every box sold they also donate a meal to feed hungry children in America- how awesome is that?! Boxes start at just $7.99/month, and they have a gluten free box too, for all the gluten avoiders out there.
