My daughter LOVES peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I mean L O V E S. She could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I let her!
I came across a smoothie recipe that sort of reminded me of a PB and J from my friend, Kristi, at Veggie Converter. I wanted to tweak it a bit using ingredients we have at home, added some maca (for stress relief) and gelatin (for digestion and healthy skin and nails)…sure enough…success!
My daughter LOVED this! I did too, actually. I liked the creaminess and sourness of the kefir, the sweet of the berry and the touch of nuttiness from the peanut butter. This is a great breakfast or snack.
You can make it ahead of time and keep in the fridge. You will need to re-blend with a bit of ice and some milk or kefir to get it back to a nice consistency before enjoying.
