Being mama to a toddler, I try to find ways to sneak in healthy foods wherever I can! And smoothies are one of the easiest places to do this!
Who doesn’t love a good old fashioned peanut butter and jelly sandwich?! This twist on the old classic is a delicious and healthy way to get in some essential nutrients. Wyatt loves it when I pour it in a class mason jar with a lid and straw. Another tip if you’re also raising a toddler, don’t offer it to them–just make if for yourself and they will surly ask for it! We usually end up switching cups several times as he always likes to drink MINE. It’s also fun to get them involved in making it! Wyatt will put the spinach leaves in and push the buttons on the blender.
I always make ton, enough for the whole family, so multiply the following ingredients by how many people you are making the smoothie for.
1 cup frozen mixed berries
1 Tablespoon Peanut Butter
2 Tablespoons hemp hearts
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 giant handful of spinach leaves
2 cups milk of choice (I usually use raw)
Add all ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
