Whenever I make this smoothie for the gang (three sisters, my mom, Erik and wildly fortunate nearby loiterers), I’m ridiculously pleased by their reactions.

The thing is, no one ever expects a beautifully pink, creamy, seemingly Strawberry Members Only smoothie to have this amazing peanut butter kick to it. It’s this unexpected surprise that brightens up people’s days (and alleviates their fear of members-only clubs).

Then, the best part: a smile that you haven’t seen on those faces since they were kids. That’s what this protein-packed strawberry peanut butter smoothie does: it brings out the happy kid in everyone. *happy sigh*

You take a sip and you’re just reminded of the simpler days. Like…

  • the beauty of a bunch of colorful balloons floating against a clear blue sky
  • peanut butter and strawberry jelly all over your face because you’re young and haven’t learned to be self-conscious yet
  • running around with your friends until your lungs burn and it’s time for a nap (girl… do I miss those!)
  • and so much more.

This protein-rich smoothie is made of just 5 ingredients, super quick and easy to make, and has 19 grams of protein per serving. All you have to do is load up your blender with the ingredients: strawberries, peanut butter, Greek yogurt, almond milk and frozen bananas. You blend it until it’s smooth and rich like buttah. But not… because that’s just weird. Okay then, just blend it until it’s smooth like… um… wait for it… a smoothie. Heh. Heh.

    1. Wohoo!! I’m all for that! 🙂 Yup, no crust for us. Haha. Thanks for stopping by, Bethany. 🙂 It’s so nice to meet you.

  1. Hmm… Definitely a yes to the PB&Js (with strawberry jelly, so I’m completely feeling you on this recipe), but also s’mores, hot chocolate (with a piece of buttered toast for dipping), a friendly game of Red Rover, flashlight tag and/or simon says. These pics are glorious as always. You, my friend, have a way with peanut butter 😉

    1. PB&J all the way! Haha. Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. 😉 Loving all the childhood things you mentioned… especially the HoCho and simon says.:) Thank you so much for your kind words, as always Stephanie. Muah!
