Reminiscent of the childhood classic we all love, this creamy smoothie treats you to the fruity, nutty flavors that make the PB&J such an enduring favorite. Each smoothie pack is filled with cherries and strawberries for sweet, jammy flavor, plus sliced banana for extra creaminess. We’re adding the peanut butter to the bag to keep it classic, but why not go a little off course with almond or cashew butter for a cool smoothie that will not disappoint?

What to Add to This Smoothie Kit

This kit comes together with three fruity ingredients, plus a scoop of nut butter and the liquid of your choice when it’s time to blend. Here’s what you’ll need.

banana + pitted cherries + strawberries + nut butter

Before adding the ingredients, I think it’s most helpful to label the bag with the name of the smoothie and what you’ll need to add when you blend it up (more on that below!). For each smoothie kit, to a freezer bag add the following ingredients:

  • 1 sliced banana
  • 1/2 cup pitted cherries
  • 1/2 hulled strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon of nut butter

If you want to keep things as quick and convenient as possible, start with store-bought frozen berries, otherwise wash, dry, and prep fresh berries, then add them right to the bag. Remember you can also wash and reuse your freezer bags.

Here’s How to Blend It Up

For each smoothie, add about 1 cup of coconut water or any type of milk (dairy or non-dairy) to the blender. Dump in the smoothie kit and blend.
