My kids love smoothies and I love how easy it is to fill them with greens in a way that they will eat it right up! This smoothie is super quick and easy and such a great way to get in those greens.
Seriously, finding ways to get kids to eat healthy food can be a chore. It’s great when they feel like they’re getting a treat but reallllly it’s just a diabolical plan I’ve hatched to sneak in nutrients they need. Bonus, I get to enjoy it too!

Tips and tricks
For the best PB&J smoothie, keep these tips in mind:
- Any berries will work for this recipe, I prefer using a mix.
- You can substitute the maple syrup for 3-4 pitted dates.
- Coconut milk will make the smoothie the most creamy, but any dairy free milk will work.
- Adjust the thickness of the smoothie by adding more milk to thin it out.
- Add more maple syrup for a sweeter smoothie, or don’t use as much for a less sweet one.
- Spinach is a great way to sneak in veggies as the flavor isn’t overpowering. Other leafy greens work, as well as zucchini, squash, cucumber, carrots, and cauliflower.
I use peanut butter, but you can sub it out for almond butter or cashew butter if you prefer.
Prep smoothies ahead of time by portioning out the ingredients except the milk. Store them in airtight jars or bags in the freezer so they’re ready to go straight in the blender!
It depends what you put in them but YES they certainly can be, like this one! Smoothies are a great easy way to pack in tons of delicious healthy ingredients while sneaking in extra greens!
