Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie

Peanut butter and jelly is a classic match made in heaven so when coming up with smoothie concoctions, I wanted to replicate the flavors in this classic sandwich. My favorite jam has always been strawberry, so I've used frozen strawberries in this, but feel free to try other frozen berries such as raspberry, blackberry or a combination. Cherry would also be delicious if your belly tolerates them. Note, there is no jam or jelly used in this smoothie -- it's all about frozen fruit and peanut butter. The protein powder, if you use my recommendation, Sun Warrior, Warrior Blend Vanilla, helps sweeten and add a touch of vanilla: Think sandwich bread in a regular PB&J. Peanut Butter and Jelly smoothie also contains 1 of my favorite smoothie ingredients: Chia seeds for fiber and Omega-3 fatty acids, and to help "thicken" it like a milkshake. At the end of the day, this is a full meal replacement that tastes like a treat.


For those with peanut allergies, replace the peanut butter with almond butter, another nut butter of your choice, or try Sun Butter (sunflower seed butter).

The ingredients listed make a low-FODMAP smoothie. Keep in mind as you make substitutions. Almond milk, strawberries, and peanut butter are all the lowest in FODMAP content compared to others in their category. Even though a black cherry + peanut butter smoothie would be delicious, I'd be curled over from stomach pain due to the cherries' sorbitol content (a FODMAP). Check your protein powder for offending ingredients. I have had personal success with Sun Warrior, Warrior Blend Vanilla, I find its blend of protein ingredients varied enough that my tummy behaves, plus it adds just a touch of sweetness without any weird aftertaste.
