PB&J Smoothie Bowl

This PB&J Smoothie Bowl is a Paleo and Vegan take on the classic sandwich — in smoothie form! It is full of fruit and healthy fats, so it’s a healthy treat that you can feel good about eating. Feel free to use peanut butter (for non-Paleo folks), almond butter, or even sunflower seed butter in this bowl! No matter which nut butter you use, it will be delicious. The most important part of a smoothie bowl is the toppings, so make sure to load it up with banana, chia seeds, coconut . . . whatever floats your boat!

I did not plan this recipe. At all. Last week, my sister was helping me in the kitchen (I bribed her with food). She decided to make peanut butter, and I told her “Hey — let’s make a PB&J smoothie bowl!” We whipped up this recipe in ten minutes flat . . . it took me longer to photograph this than it took to make it!

So about the peanut butter issue and peanut butter not being Paleo and all that . . . I eat peanut butter because a) it’s delicious and b) I tolerate it just fine. If you don’t, use a different nut butter! I promise, the recipe will be just as good. 🙂

As I mentioned earlier, the best part of a smoothie bowl is all of the toppings. My sister and I trashed this one up with banana, coconut, chia seeds, blueberries, more peanut butter (we’re obsessed), and jelly. Well, sort of. It’s a PB&J Smoothie Bowl, so we figured there had to be some “jelly” in there somewhere. We used quite a few strawberries in the smoothie itself, but that wasn’t exactly jelly. We just dolloped a spoonful of chia seed jelly on top of the bowl, but you certainly don’t have to. It doesn’t add much to the smoothie (it’s just sugar, after all).

In spite of the fact that I planned, made, photographed, and ate this recipe in the span of thirty minutes, it was actually really good. If it had been bad, I wouldn’t be writing this post right now! I might have re-tested the recipe to post later, though, because this is such a cute idea! I mean, a PB&J Smoothie Bowl? Come on! It’s SO GOOD! You guys really have to try this one! You can probably make it in five minutes . . four and a half if you’re quick. 😉
