Peanut butter & jelly smoothie9

Posted on June 3, 2011 by ChristieBreakfast, Drinks, Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian

This is a play on the American favourite sandwich combination of ‘peanut butter and jelly’ – in a liquid version. It’s super quick, super yummy and sure to super-charge you for the day!

Of course the ‘jelly’ element is actually what we call ‘jam’ here in Australia. ‘Jelly’ for us is ‘Jello’ for Americans. Confused yet?

This smoothie uses Vitasoy Soy Milky Lite making it a quick and healthy breakfast that is vegetarian, vegan, gluten free. Not to mention, super easy to slurp up before you rush out the door. I had it for breakfast the other day along with a crumpet and I was full until lunch time.

Give it a try! I’d love to hear if you think it really does taste like a PB&J sandwich!

Fig & Cherry received soy milk product with compliments from Vitasoy to experiment with for this recipe. Fig & Cherry is working with Vitasoy as an ambassador and recipe developer for their products.
