Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein Shake {Summer Smoothie Survival Giveaway}

The childhood favorite, PB & J, blended into a protein shake! A perfect cool down treat! 

PB & J Protein Shake(1)

This is one of our go-to morning shakes/smoothies.  I like to drink it post-run or post- workout, but I’ve also been known to blend it up for an afternoon treat.  Especially after a hot day at the pool, when I’m starving but really just want something refreshing!  It’s thick and creamy, and chalk-full of peanut butter goodness.  With a hint of jelly.  Just like a classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich only in an ice cream/smoothie/shake form.    

PB & J Protein Shake(2)

But this doesn’t really have jelly in it.  The “jelly” is actually dried prunes.  It might sound strange, but you’ll just have to trust me on this one and give it a try.

    LOVE THIS! I kid you not Kellan’s favorite thing to snack on right now is prunes. And we used to have smoothies every morning for breakfast. Time to get back into that habit and this will be the perfect way to get us there.
