Quick and easy to blend up, this protein-rich Peanut Butter Berry Smoothie will be a favorite for PB&J lovers!
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter celebrating in the ways you are familiar with. Did you have an egg hunt, picnic or eat dinner out?
My son and daughter were both home, so I was in mom heaven planning and then putting together a brunch for our family. We had ham, an egg casserole, yogurt parfaits, mixed fruit, coffee cake, cookies, and asparagus to name a few of the dishes. Oh, and mimosas! You can’t have a brunch without mimosas!!
It was definitely a filling feast that we thoroughly enjoyed. We had fabulous sunny weather too, so we were outdoors in our courtyard soaking up some vitamin D!
Today it’s time to put aside the peanut butter eggs, and leave that chocolate bunny’s ear intact (the ears are first to go!) for a protein rich Peanut Butter Berry Smoothie.
Low in calories and filling, this smoothie is a great breakfast supplement or my favorite time to drink a smoothie is right after a workout!
I added raspberries, banana and a peanut butter powder to this smoothie. If you aren’t familiar with peanut butter powder, give it a try! It has the peanut butter flavor we all love, but it’s lower in fat and calories than regular peanut butter (45 vs. 190 calories) because they squish the fatty oils out and don’t add anything extra like preservatives.
Pretty awesome and tastes delicious in smoothies. I have only tried the PB2 brand, but there must be other to sample as well.
Try this smoothie and let me know what you think!

I really enjoy smoothies, so I thought I would share a collection of 5 Fresh Smoothie Flavors for Spring by Anyonita Nibbles!
It’s been fun to check out other blogs and recipes with link parties! I just figured out how to add the button 🙂
PB&J without the bread! It’s a yummy combination 🙂
This looks and sounds so delicious! I especially love the color! <3
Pretty pink for sure! Thanks, Brandi!
It sounds like you cooked a fantastic meal to enjoy with your children. How lovely that they were all home for Easter – that does make the holiday/occasion all the more special. I’ve never had a peanut butter smoothie before! This has turned out to be a very pretty colour xx
We don’t live close to most of our extended family, so it’s so nice when we get my immediate family to spend the holidays together. I’m addicted to smoothies! Love them 🙂

this looks delish, and I’m always looking for a way to use my PB2! Love it!
It’s PB2 the greatest?!! I think I’m going to try making a peanut butter pie with it next!
This looks absolutely delicious Sandra 🙂 I will be giving it a go ASAP!
Thanks, Nicole! Let me know what you think 🙂
I had no idea peanut butter powder exists! This is a delicious smoothie and I am sure everyone enjoyed it!
Peanut butter powder is amazing good stuff! It’s fun to incorporate in recipes!
What a gorgeous smoothie, Sandra!!! I’m glad the peanut butter powder let the color of the berries shine through so nicely 🙂
Hi Liz! Yes, I was happy it still looks pretty. Peanut butter has a tendency to start looking grayish!
Did not know about peanut butter powder, learn something new, thanks.
Wonderful that both of your children were home for Easter and you were in “Mom Heaven”.
Peanut butter powder is fun to play with when you want to cut down on calories and fat! Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend too, Norma!
