Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie w/ Homemade Almond Milk


* Recipe by guest contributor Laney Schwartz, creator of Life is But a Dish

It’s your lucky day.

You get 2 recipes in 1 post! And even better? 2 EASY recipes in 1 post. Happy May!

What? May? How is this possible? It’s practically summer, which means it’s basically Thanksgiving, and now it’s the holidays! Aaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Woah there. Minor panic attack. Let’s just start with this smoothie. I’m pretty much down for peanut butter and jelly in any way, shape, or form. Even if it means I have to drink it.

In my opinion, there’s no better way to start your day than with this quick, easy, healthy, and filling classic PB&J in your face.

Oh, and I made my own almond milk.


That’s right. I MADE milk. Well, let’s be honest. I’ve actually made milk twice before (once with each baby). Talk about a miracle!

But really, this is pretty cool too. And it’s way easier, way faster, and it doesn’t hurt (all you mamas know what I’m talkin’ about).

How crazy it is that from these almonds, comes milk?! I can’t get over it. Plus, it’s delicious, and way better for you than all those ingredients you can’t pronounce on the side of the milk carton. I’m gonna go on a milk rampage. Obsessed.

I bought one of those nut milk bags which I think is the best and easiest way to do this. They’re great, reusable, and most importantly, easy to clean.
