Today is National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day! And to celebrate, you can easily turn the flavors of your child’s favorite sandwich into a smoothie! A PB & J smoothie can be a quick and healthy weekday breakfast alternative for busy families. This smoothie takes very little time to make (with just 4 ingredients) and it has plenty of protein, calcium and other nutrients to provide a steady stream of energy throughout the morning at school.┬áKids seem to like the familiar flavors of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and of course the best part – no crusts!

Avoiding peanuts? Not a problem. You can easily swap the peanut butter for any other nut or seed butter like almond, soy, cashew, sunflower seed, etc.

Here are a few fun PB & J Facts:

  • It is estimated that the average American school child will have gobbled through 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before graduating from high school.
  • When surveyed, 96% of people said that they put the peanut butter on before the jelly.
  • Celebrate – April 2nd is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day!

    Just discovered your blog & I love it! But I can never see the ingredients only the directions :/ ..I’m on a kindle fire.

    Add me to the list of people who can never see the ingredient list, only directions; it’s very frustrating and keeps me from checking this blog as often as I otherwise would. Maybe you need to check your layout’s compatibility and update it…

  7. Kimberly is there anyway you can take a screenshot of the issue? I can’t reproduce the bug but appreciate the feedback. Please shoot me an email

    Mattrossidesigns@gmail.com and explain it a little more in depth. Thanks!
