My friend Deborah, from Taste and Tell, just released a cookbook filled with the Best 100 Smoothies for Kids. If you follow me on Instagram you probably know that Deborah and I ate our way through San Diego last week. Trust me when I say that she loves food as much as I do. Best-100-Smoothies-webI had my kids look through the cookbook to pick out smoothies they wanted to try. Every single one we’ve made was delicious and healthy. Of course my kids immediately were drawn to this one. What kid doesn’t love peanut butter and jelly? And you know how around 3:30 the kids start whining about wanting a snack? A healthy smoothie is the perfect solution! All the recipes are free of added sugars and filled with fruits and veggies.PB&J Smoothie - a healthy smoothie that your kids will love! the-girl-who-ate-everything.com

  2. This looks SO good. I knew Deborah would have the absolute best smoothie ideas in her book! I’m ordering a copy now, love it! I miss being so full that you have the chills 🙂

  3. My kids would love this!!! What a great cookbook!

  4. Christy, this smoothie looks amazing! I’m a grown woman, and I will NEVER tire of PB&J! Not only will I be making this for my girls, I’m making myself one also! ; )

  5. I’m very curious—do you know why Deborah calls for UNDERRIPE bananas?

    • Haha. I was thinking the same thing. I think it’s because they have less sugar. Obviously a riper banana will yield a sweeter smoothie. I don’t mind it because it’s natural sugar.

    • Hi Avra! The underripe banana will give you the creaminess from the banana without the overwhelming banana taste. It’s a great trick for when you want the creamy texture without having a banana flavored smoothie. 🙂

  6. Simple anf healthy recipe!

  7. I’m so glad you are enjoying the cookbook!! Your smoothie looks perfect and makes me want to make one right now!!
