What is better than a classic PB & J? I love anything peanut butter, so naturally I created this PB & J Smoothie Bowl to satisfy that signature craving of a classic sandwich. This recipe is gluten, dairy, and grain free. Dig into this smoothie bowl for breakfast, a post-workout snack, or as a lunch for a satisfying meal to keep you energized for the day ahead!
I love a good smoothie bowl in the morning. Sometimes I will have a cup of coffee or tea with some collagen and coconut oil for a pre-workout snack, and then I will follow up with this smoothie bowl post-workout. Smoothies in general are so easy to make, but they can really become something spectacular when you play with the ingredients and turn it into a bowl. The vibrant colors and beautiful textures make this not only an attractive dish, but a wholesome one that has all the basic meal essentials (healthy fats, fiber, greens and protein) to keep you satiated until the next meal.
For this you can use chocolate or vanilla protein powder. For this recipe I used chocolate, because why not? I have made it with vanilla, and it was equally as delicious. My preferred brands of protein powder are Tone It Up or Primal Kitchen’s Collagen Fuel. Both of these are linked on my Shop page. They are both clean protein powders that will take the guess work out of reading the ingredient label. If you are Paleo then sub the peanut butter for almond butter.
