Peanut Butter Triple Berry Smoothie Recipe

Yum
This Peanut Butter Triple Berry Smoothie recipe reminds me of a PB&J sandwich with a glass of cold milk. Minus the bread. Great breakfast or snack!

My friend Dawn Rae just published a review of her new NutriBullet Pro 900. I read the review this morning and promptly started having hunger pangs that quickly grew into cravings for a fruit smoothie. So I went looking for a recipe.

Since an unopened bag of Schwan's Triple Berry Blend was residing in my freezer (alongside a zipper bag of frozen banana halves, my favorite smoothie sweetener), I turned to the Schwan's website for inspiration.

Their Triple Berry Smoothie recipe caught my eye and held my interest. In fact, I was rather fascinated that peanut butter was one of the ingredients. Hmm. Berries and peanut butter. Sounds good. Plus banana. Sounds even better. Their recipe called for almond milk, which I didn't have on hand, but I made an executive decision to use regular milk. My future smoothie was sounding better and better.

After blending then promptly consuming the results (after snapping a few pictures, of course), both my taste buds and my tummy were satisfied. The peanut butter taste really stood out, so I decided to call my concoction a Peanut Butter Triple Berry Smoothie. Here's my version of the recipe, for you to try:

Peanut Butter Triple Berry Smoothie 

1 cup milk (I used regular 2% milk; feel free to use almond milk)
3/4 cup Schwan's frozen Triple Berry Blend (contains raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries) 
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1/2 frozen banana 

Combine the ingredients in your blender or smoothie maker. Pulse or blend until thoroughly mixed and smooth. Pop in a straw and enjoy!

Makes one serving. 

If Schwan's products aren't available in your area, feel free to substitute your own combination of frozen berries.

Note that you might come across some tiny raspberry seeds as you consume your smoothie. That wasn't a problem for me, but just wanted to let you know in case it's a problem for you.

This smoothie reminded me of a PB & J sandwich with a glass of cold milk. Minus the bread. Made a pretty good breakfast for me!

So, what do you think. Sound good to you?

    1. Yes, yes, yes, Heather! Bet almond butter would be a perfect substitute, especially since the original recipe used almond milk. Great reminder - thanks!

    1. I guess it adds a nice dose of protein, Elf, along with the awesomeness of the flavor. After everyone's comments, I'm about ready for another one!

    1. Barbara, it's certainly fine to substitute another brand of frozen berries, or even a different combination. As for Schwan's products, I've been a satisfied customer for many years and love their food (and I get nothing for promoting it here), so that's why their name comes up occasionally in my recipes.
