All natural peanut butter and jelly raspberry protein smoothie recipe (with frozen Oregon berries!)

I dare say I've mastered the slushy, milk shake-ey, delicious, still nutritious and filling all natural protein shake. I made this one extra exciting with some frozen berries and it is so tasty, pretty, and perfect for the middle of winter!

The Oregon Raspberry and Blackberry Commission supports hundreds of Oregon growers of raspberries, blackberries, Marionberries, and other caneberries (have you ever heard that term?? Berries that grow on a cane!) and wants to spread the word that we can eat Oregon berries all year long! They provided some of the ingredients for this post, and I used berries we picked at a farm last summer!

We love to do u-pick berry trips in the summer at local farms, and freeze lots of berries for eating later. Raspberries freeze SO well and are just as flavorful and even have a good texture after being in the freezer for months. Adding these to my smoothie reminded me of our summer picking trips and much better weather than we've been having now. ;)

Plus, the color is pretty for Valentine's Day! Here's a healthy treat that you can enjoy without guilt! I use unflavored protein powder so there are no mystery ingredients, and you can make it dairy-free and legume-free for strict Paleo or nut-free!

Peanut butter & jelly raspberry protein smoothie


Ingredients:


  • 1 c. coconut milk or almond milk
  • 1 serving unflavored protein powder (whey or collagen)
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter powder, peanut butter, or almond butter
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • Sprinkle sea salt
  • 1/2 c. frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 2 tsp. xylitol (optional--use if you want it sweeter or if your banana wasn't super ripe)
  • 8 large ice cubes

    Instructions:


    1. Measure milk using guides on blender pitcher. Combine all other ingredients into blender.
    2. Blend on low (on a Vitamix or other high speed blender) until smooth.

    You know it's perfect when it looks like this!

    Makes 1 serving or 2 small servings. (I usually eat a whole one myself but they look cuter in two small jars!)

    Optional: top with more peanut butter, almond butter, or powdered peanut butter made up!

    Great optional add-ins:


    You can add a lot to these slushy protein shakes/smoothies! Here are some easy ones I enjoy:
    • Couple handfulls of fresh spinach. It'll make it greenish in color but you can't taste it!
    • 2-4 dates instead of xylitol if your bananas aren't sweet enough
    • Top with coconut flakes or sliced almonds for extra texture

    If you don't have a quality unflavored protein powder on hand, I highly recommend getting some! Grassfed whey is great but this is a budget-friendly option. If you don't do dairy or want some extra skin, nail, and muscle health benefits, this grassfed collagen protein is amazing. These and other faves used in this recipe linked below!
