Protein Packed PB&J Green Smoothie Recipe — Target Breakfast Twist

July 2, 2017

*This is a sponsored post. The information and prize pack have been provided by General Mills through Platefull Co-Op and Target Breakfast Twist. I received a package of breakfast foods from Target for the purposes of this green smoothie recipe creation. All opinions are my own.

Breakfast is so important for getting your day off to the right start, but if you’re like me, then you end up feeding your kids a good breakfast and forget to feed yourself. I end up grabbing a granola bar as we run out the door to get to school because I’ve been so busy getting everyone else fed and ready to go that I ran out of time for me to eat. But, I love smoothies, and so do my boys. So on busy mornings these can be a great Target Breakfast Twist to get us off to a healthy, well balanced start. This PB&J Protein Green Smoothie recipe is one of our new favorites. It’s easy to make, can be eaten on the go, and is FULL of healthy stuff. There’s not actually any jelly in it, but it reminded me of peanut butter and jelly since it has PB and mixed berries. You can find the ingredients you need at Target.

My favorite thing about the PB&J Protein Green Smoothie is that it really is a well balanced meal in a glass. It has protein, fiber, whole grains, fruit, healthy fat, and veggies all in one. I especially like the veggies. It can be hard to get a veggie in that early in the morning, but this gets a whole serving of veggies in first thing! And it tastes good, too! My three year old gave it a try and told me “Yum! That’s a delicious smoothie, Mommy.” This particular recipe is really easy to customize, too. If you’re dairy free, substitute your favorite nut milk. Don’t like peanut butter? Try almond or cashew butter. Nut free? Try soy or rice milk with Sunbutter instead of peanut butter. Want to add even more superfood goodness? Add a tablespoon of chia seeds. Make the smoothie whatever you want it to be!
