Why drink your smoothie, when you can plate it and top it with all sorts of amazing toppings? Smoothie bowls are fun and a fantastic way to add lots of nutritious ingredients to one preparation. This PB & J Smoothie is delicious and packed with healthy fats. Want to learn how to make it? Let’s get to it!
Some smoothies are fresh and others are more indulgent, if you’re a fan of the latter then this PB&J Smoothie will make you very happy. One of the easiest ways to make your smoothies creamier is by adding nut butters to them. Peanut butter, almond butter or cashew butter can make for a richer drink which is a great thing when it comes to smoothie bowls.
If you rather skip the nut butters you can add some flax meal (grounded flax seeds), some oats, one or two brazil nuts (great for selenium!), or a few walnuts (a good Omega 3’s source).
All About the Crunch
Now let’s talk about toppings because that’s what smoothie bowls are all about and we are here for it. Topping your bowl of oatmeal is the funnest part about preparing them. Depending on your preference you can opt for different toppings but we recommend choosing a few crunchy ones because it seems to be an important part of the formula. Let’s check a few options:
Dried Fruits (like raisins, cranberries or mulberries)
Drizzle of nut butter
One of the things we love most about the convenience of smoothies is how easy it is to swap ingredients while coming up with newfound blends. Try adding raspberries when you’re out of strawberries, or mango when out of pineapple. Get creative with your morning shake and open up your healthy breakfast possibilities.
