PB&J and Banana Smoothie

Print Friendly

This gluten-free and dairy-free smoothie is refreshing and loaded with goodness. It’s great for kids who love peanut butter and jelly, and moms who’d rather pass on the processed bread and jam.  You can use fresh or frozen berries. If you choose fresh, you may want to add a little ice to cool it off a bit. You may opt to add more greens…don’t worry, your kids won’t even know they’re there!

1/4 cup frozen or fresh berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries)
1/2 cup greens (kale or spinach)
1/2 banana
3 tbsp whole flax seed
1 tbsp natural almond or peanut butter
1 1/2 cups filtered water
Optional: replace 1/2 cup of water with plain organic milk (non-dairy works too) to make it creamier.

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender and enjoy your gluten free breakfast! Great as a snack too!
