PB & J & G Shake

Ciao everyone!

Do you loooove peanut butter and jelly??

There is something magical in that nostalgic combination...

And magical things are very excellent sources for ideas for recipe experimentation!

Here is a recipe for a pb & j & g(reens) shake!

Greens Smoothies are becoming more and more popularr.. and I can totally understand why!

The varieties of greens make it easy to never be board by flavor.. like ever.

Plus, they are a powerhouse in the nutrition realm!

I used Red Leaf Lettuce this time around... but feel free to swap for whatever greens you like!

Or try it a couple different times, with different combos!

The possibilities are endless:)

PB & J & G(reens) Shake
a Bunch of your favorite greens for shakes
1 cup of grapes, strawberries, or another berry (your favorite jelly flavor)
2 tablespoons homemade peanut butter
dash of salt
about 1/2 cup crushed ice
vanilla extract

1) Stuff your smoothie cup with greens. Fill halfway with water. Blend
2) Add fruit, peanut butter, a few drops of vanilla, and ice. Add more water if needed. Blend.
3) If you want to go really crazy, and if there's more room, throw a bit more greens and blend again. 
Ciao for now
