PB&J is a classic combo for a reason. It’s downright awesome.
Here I have added an extra “B” twist and created a thick and creamy smoothie that satisfies the craving for PB&J while also delivering veggies, fibre, antioxidants, healthy fats and protein.
To enhance both the nutrition and pretty pink colour, I have added beetroot crystals (hence the extra B in my PBB&J!). The beetroot crystals are optional, but trust me here — they add beautiful colour and amazing vitamins, minerals and antioxidants with only a mild sweet earthy flavour.
Also, for anyone who cannot eat peanuts (allergies, paleo diet, etc.), this smoothie bowl is great with sunflower seed butter, pumpkin seed butter, or the nut butter of your choice in place of the peanut butter.
For 2 servings, blend together until smooth:
1.5 cups frozen strawberries
1 cup steamed-then-frozen cauliflower
2 Tbsp natural peanut or seed/nut butter of choice
1/2 cup nondairy milk
optional 1/2 to 1 Tbsp beetroot crystals, adjusted to taste
optional Lakanto monkfruit, raw honey (nonvegan), or stevia, adjusted to taste
Serve with your choice of toppings, such as fresh berries, peanuts or nuts, PB or nut butter, and bee pollen.
