PB & J Smoothie Bowl (Vegan & Refined Sugar Free)
A delicious, nourishing and naturally sweetened smoothie bowl reminiscent of your classic peanut butter and jelly sandwhich. This bowl also adds a punch of protein with peanut butter and chia seeds, and is vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free!
Peanut butter and jam. Can you think of a more perfect combination?
PB & J is a classic you really can’t go wrong with – even in your smoothie!
Loaded with fruit and your favourite toppings, smoothie bowls are not only healthy but extremely satisfying (especially if you have a sweet tooth, like me!)
Today I’m going to share with you my absolute favourite smoothie bowl recipe. It’s a spin on the classic pb & j, and involves only four main ingredients, and a blender!
Simply add mixed berries, chia seeds, peanut butter and almond milk to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl and top with your favourites. I love hemp seeds, coconut flakes and more chia seeds on top.
Adding chia seeds to any smoothie will thicken it up and give it more of a “soft serve” consistency (because who doesn’t love ice cream made of fruit?!) Chia seeds also have a myriad of health benefits including: added fiber, omega 3 fatty acids, iron, calcium and antioxidants. You can find chia seeds at most health food grocery stores, or buy them on sale here.
