PB&J Vegan Protein Smoothie

I love anything PB&J — if you have all of my books, you’ll know that a PB&J-inspired recipe is in each one. In an effort to create a post-run drink that I’d love and make me realize smoothies can be delicious (they’ve never been my favourite… I only have one other smoothie recipe on my site), I set out the following guidelines and am now drinking to success everyday:

  • Not too banana-y
  • Low FODMAP
  • No effort
  • High protein (this clocks in at about 24 grams)
  • No stevia
  • Tastes like a PB&J
  • And, of course, gluten-free and vegan

PB&J Vegan Protein Smoothie

PB&J Vegan Protein Smoothie

5 medium frozen strawberries
1/2 small banana, cut into slices and frozen
1 scoop (21g) natural/unflavored brown rice protein powder (see Notes)
2 tablespoons (10g) peanut powder (see Notes)
1/2 teaspoon psyllium powder (see Notes)
1/2 to 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Pinch salt

Put all ingredients in a blender (I use an immersion blender; easier clean up). Blend until smooth.

Notes:

  • For the unsweetened brown rice protein powder, I use this one from Sunwarrior
  • For the peanut powder, I use Jif (this one).
  • You don’t have to include psyllium; this isn’t added for texture or taste, but just for extra soluble fibre
