HOW TO MAKE THIS PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY SMOOTHIE RECIPE YOUR OWN
We use the term “recipe” very loosely here. Think of the ingredients below more as a template for a smoothie and then play around with them based on your personal preferences and what you happen to have on hand in your pantry, swapping in other berries in place of blueberries, dairy-free yogurt for the Greek yogurt, any nut or seed butter, and maple syrup or agave syrup in place of honey. Simply follow your fancy and don’t forget to let us know in a comment below.
