Did you know that Blueberries are just bursting with sparkly Antioxidants and Vitamin C and that they just happen to make an incredibly fun and delicious (not to mention healthy) ‘Peanut Butter & Jelly’ Smoothie?

A single sip on this creation had me lamenting all those years of my youth misspent eating Cheese & Vegemite Sandwiches every day.  What was I thinking?  Kids are weird.

Thankfully I am now a grown-up and can drink nonsense-inspired smoothies every day, YIPPPEEEEE!!  

*High Five!*

Now, go easy on the peanut butter at first because the blueberries have the more subtle flavour and you want a great balance – just like in the sandwich.  Only you know how you like your PB&J – am I right?

Or get all fancy and experiment with cashew or almond butter and see which one you like best.

Have fun!

I’m off to see a Pinterest about a trampoline.  And a unicorn.

    I just made this, but I added in spinach and spirulina for it to have some green goodness for the 30 day green smoothie challenge. Oh my god, so good. Although mine didn’t look so pretty :S

      Absolutely, KB! Any sweetener will do the trick.
