This vegan, no sugar added Strawberry-Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie is a nutritious and delicious way to start your day!
You’ve heard of Strawberry-Banana as a common flavor combination, but you may be wondering…”What’s with the peanut butter?”
Well, I have a confession to make.
This smoothie was inspired by one of my favorite food combinations growing up…strawberry ice cream and peanut butter topping.
You might think this is weird. At least, all of my friends did when we went to Friendly’s for ice cream.
I used to love that place. There was one in our local shopping mall that we went to every Friday night. The waitress even memorized our orders. All we had to say was “the usual.”
Sixteen-year-olds with a usual. Gotta love it. ♥
Anyway, I’m going to prove that strawberry ice cream and peanut butter topping is not a strange food combination.
Peanut butter and jelly.
What does good old PB&J have to do with this, you ask?
Well, the facts show that peanut butter and jelly is a perfectly acceptable, well-loved food pairing.
But, I wonder…what if that jelly happens to be of the strawberry variety?
Aha! See, it IS totally normal!
Case dismissed. Court adjourned.
Oh, wait…you want to try it?
Alright, you twisted my arm.
