It tastes almost like peanut butter and jelly – but it actually has no grapes.  I often make this myself at home and I just love how it tastes. The peanut butter is a great source of protein and keeps me full until lunch. A few of my other favorite protein packed smoothies are Superfood PB Banana and Cacao Green Smoothie, Strawberry Peanut Butter Swirl Smoothie Bowl, and Blueberry Banana PB Smoothie.

I just got a new KitchenAid 5 Speed Diamond Blender thanks to the Better Blog Retreat and I immediately knew I was going to make this smoothie to put it to the test. The blender is quite powerful and crushes ice perfectly. I give it two thumbs up!

I’ve been doing so much traveling these past few weeks and I’m a bit behind in sharing my amazing four days spent in Park City, Utah with some of my favorite blogging friends for the Better Blog Retreat hosted by Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod and Heidi from Foodie Crush. 

I love these ladies!!

This was my first time in Park City, Utah, but it won’t be my last – it was gorgeous! We stayed in a beautiful rustic Anthology Storied Destinations vacation home tucked away in the mountains, so secluded it’s only accessible by a ski slope or a hidden tunnel!

If you ever want to travel to a ski destination with a large group – this house is for you! It had an amazing kitchen where we spent much of our time…

The house slept 15 people, plus it has a theater, spa, hot tub… and even an elevator! Here’s a photo of us girls sitting around the dining room table, talking, drinking wine, laughing, Instagraming and just having a great time.

  1. This is so yummy! Added some maca to it also. I need to check out the rest of your recipes. Thanks!

  2. Delicious and refreshing!!

  3. I just have a quick question. Can I use normal milk instead of almond milk?

  4. This smoothie recipe is so tasty and fulfilling! 5 stars!

  5. One of the best smoothie I have EVER made! I added a scoop of protien powder, a tbls of Chia seeds and handful of spinach. I also added a little more liquid to make it less thick. The flavor is amazing!! Can’t wait to make this for my whole family!

  6. I am so glad I found your website. I have learned so much in the comments. I wanted to make heathy smoothies but didn’t really know what to throw in. I wanted to start making smoothies. Question: does blending greens take any nutrition by breaking them down?

  7. This is a great smoothie. I use peanut butter powder instead of peanut butter to reduce fat. Tastes great!

  8. Wow, this is good! I love it! 😁

  9. Love this!I throw the whole strawberries in, I figure the green tops get shredded anyhow. Great post workout drink to cool me down.

  10. This is absolutely outstanding. I’m always sad when I get to the bottom of my glass. I add greens if I have any for some extra healthy oomph – you can’t taste them. Thank you for another delicious recipe, Gina!

  11. I haven’t tried this yet, but you show it is 9 points on all 3 plans and I can’t say for Green and Purple plans but on Blue it is only 4 points.  PB is 3 points, almond milk is 1 point, the fruit is zero as was the stevia.

    • No, you are incorrect. You have to create a recipe in the recipe builder and select “this is a drink” for accurate points. WW assigns more points when you drink fruit that’s blended like a smoothie.

  12. Creamy and delicious! 

  13. Easy and delicious and I even left out the sweetener. 

  14. For those following the WW plan, it is actually 9 smart points for all 3 plans, blue, green & purple. 

    • Did you calculate by creating a recipe and adding the ingredients? 
      My math using the recipe builder came up the same as Skinnytaste’s 

      • In the recipe builder on WW and then click “This is a drink”. WW does not count smoothie points by ingredients.  They have an article on why. I’ll go find it. 

  15. Awesome!!!!

  16. I had just ordered a Nutribullet so I thought I’d give this a try.  Oh my goodness this is the best shake ever! Just like dessert. I think I’ll try variations of it with a little spinach for my greens but this is a winner! 

  17. Would this smoothie be ok for a predieabetic to drink? Thank you Erica

  18. Made this morning! So delicious!

  19. Great smoothie 👍🏻

  20. Made this today. I substituted a frozen three berry medley that I got at Aldi. It was so good. It was super frozen though and I had to add some ,ilk to get it to blend! I think I might try it with fat free Greek yogurt next time! Really good (as usual)!

  21. Allergic to most nuts, but not peanuts, cashews, or pistachios. Also allergic to coconut, what milk would you recommend using in this case?

    • I think any milk would be fine. I think I’m going to try it with fat free Greek yogurt the next time I make it.

  22. Hi there! I plugged this recipe into WW calculator because it’s a smoothie it totals 9 freestyle points. they charge more points for blended fruits

  23. Every recipe I’ve tried from skinny taste has been a hit and that includes this one. I would just suggest making sure the blender is attached correctly, it doesn’t wear as well as it tastes! Is it possible to use grapes or raspberries in place of the blueberries?

  24. Hithere, when I input this recipe into WW tracker i get 8 freestyle points per serving. I think the difference is that i clicked the drink box which makes fruit have points. According to ww this is the right way to add. Would you verify please? 

  25. Found this post from your menus, which I am really enjoying using. I make almost all the breakfasts and lunches, and many of the dinners, depending on family plans and preferences. I use the previous week as it fits into my meal planning schedule. Can’t wait to try this smoothie next week.

    By the way, my friend, Kristen is in your photos above. 🙂

  26. Hi Gina! This sounds yummy but when I run it through the WW recipe builder it is 9 freestyle smart points. I think when you were calculating it, you did not check that it was a drink. WW counts smoothies at a much higher point value because you are crushing and processing the fruit in a smoothie, thus, the blender is breaking the fruit down for you and not your body. According to WW, your body treat the fruit in a smoothie more like straight sugar because of how it is processed in the blender. Just wanted to pass along the FYI and the updated freestyle smart point value!

  27. This is my favorite smoothie by far. I noticed that the SP were not Freestyle so I entered the recipe into the recipe builder in WW and got 7 Freestyle points for this, and I used powdered peanut butter, which is only 1 SP. If I use 1/2 cup of Blueberries, it goes down to 6 SP. I hate that “This is a drink” checkbox 🙁 I could live on smoothies. Thanks, Gina, for all the great smoothie recipes!

  28. Hey Gina. I just came across this *amazing* smoothie recipe, but when I plugged it into WW, it came up as closer to 8 smart points. I am wondering if you clicked the part that said this is a drink, because WW counts the berries as 5 Smart Points when blended into a smoothie.

    Honestly I’m finding it kind of tough to create truly low point fruit smoothies. I love them though, so I count them anyway.

  29. I am obsessed with your smoothie recipes for breakfast. I’ve tried other low-fat recipes but always end up back with these! I am trying this one tomorrow!

  30. Its amazing!! Tastes just like a pb sandwich and its kid friendly!!

  31. I did too. I don't think she added the fruit in the recipe as blended. With Smart Points fruit is free in recipes unless you blend them like smoothies. I feel like it's a little misleading for those of us truly following the plan.

  32. When I plugged the calorie count, etc. into the calculator I came up with 8 SP.

  33. 3/4 what of the Almond Milk? Ounce? Cup? Pint?

  34. Hi Gina. Thank you for all you do, it has helped me in my weight loss journey. To be able to cook and eat both healthy and tasty foods, with ww points has been key. I love this recipe, but wanted to let you know in the new smart points recipe builder there is a blended box that needs to be checked for any foods blended, ie soups, smoothies, etc. This recipe actually calculates to 9 smart points with the box checked 🙁 I even checked with my leader and its the new science behind the plan.

  35. @Deb, I think it's only 0 pts if eaten alone (the fruit). I think if you use fruit in recipes they count for pts. I read that somewere, can't remember where. But that would explain why the recipe builder calculates them.

  36. As I type this I'm at work in Park City! I hope you had a fabulous time here. 🙂

  37. This looks soo good, but all your recipes are awesome, so I'm going to give this one a try too. Was wondering where we could find more information about this retreat location…looks awesome…would love to organize a group on ladies and use your new Skinny Taste Planner to plan a week….Keep blogging…Love your recipes and ideas!

  38. Not being a fan of stevia, I used 1 date instead to naturally sweeten this smoothie. Also added in 1 cup of spinach to green it up. It was sooooo yummy! One of the better smoothies we've had in a while & green smoothies are our breakfast every day! Thank you again, Gina, for a delicious recipe that's good for us 🙂

  39. I was having stomach problems so I went off almond milk and it stopped so I assumed almond milk was hurting my stomach? what else could I use in place that would keep calories down?

  40. I'm still confused about the points. Pureed fruit is not a juice. Juicing fruit takes out the skin (fiber). You essentially puree fruit when you chew it; it doesn't change the point value. In this recipe you eat the exact same fruit in the recipe which, on its own, would be free (in Points Plus). The Food Tracker counts it as zero.

    • I believe in Points Plus, although the tracker does count the fruit, we are told to omit those points. If you are following the new Smart Points, anytime fruit is blended, the fruit must be counted.

  41. Could you use protein powder? What flavor would you recommend ?

  42. I made some adjustments from what I had on hand and it still turned out great. I used:
    3/4 cup frozen strawberries (instead of fresh ones)
    1/2 of a medium banana (replaced blueberries)
    and
    5-6 drops of honey instead of stevia

  43. I am totally obsessed with smoothies. So this sounds like something I would love!

  44. Made this for breakfast this morning as am glad I did! Very delicious. I do not like stevia, so I used half a banana to sweeten. I'm sure it changed the taste a little, since I could taste banana a bit, but the PB&J taste still came through for me.

  45. Need a boost for your smoothies recipes, add a scoop of our products. Smoothie Essentials Blends are a wide range of functional supplements, delicately mixed by our herbalists for maximum health benefits. Almost all of our Blends have no color or flavor, making them easy to add to your favorite blended drink. On our website you'll find detailed information on each Blend's ingredients and benefits, so you can pick the one that's just right for you. http://www.smoothieessentials.com/index.php

  46. Will this keep overnight in the refrigerator? I love smoothies, but never have time to make them in the morning.

  47. Drinking this for lunch today – so good…and pretty 🙂

  48. not a huge peanut fan, but like PB&J. May have to try this Gee. And I love the pictures from the retreat! awesome!

  49. Where did you get your colored mason jars?

    • They sell them at Target

      • I used 2 tbsps on PB2 since I didn’t have peanut butter on hand. I have tried both with peanut butter and PB2 and I think they’re both great, but will continue to use PB 2 since it’s less points…

  50. Hi there. Love your blog! Curious how this is six points though?

  51. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to Park City – wonderful, isn't it? Were you able to try Cafe Rio while you were here? I loved your lightened up version of their pork barbacoa.

  52. Gina, have you ever tried using the sweetened almond milk instead of adding sweetner?

  53. Almond Breeze has an ingredient called "carrageenan" which I've read is not good for us, so I've switched to SILK almond milk which does not include this.

  54. I've added strawberries and blueberries to gina's skinny green monster with great results! the banana sweetens the drink and you get the extra nutrients from the spinach. It still tastes like PBJ 🙂

    You definitely don't need to use a whole banana with all those berries – about half will provide a good amount of sweetness!

  55. What a wonderful experience with some talented food bloggers. Gorgeous house and kitchen 😉

  56. I'm not much for stevia or almond milk. Have you tried it without added sweetener and/or with regular low fat milk?

  57. Your trip looked amazing! How do get involved in something like that?

  58. Hope you enjoyed Utah! I used to snowboard at Park City such a fun place…oh and I can't wait to try this smoothie!

  59. Will this retreat be in Utah again next year and it will it be around the same time? I want to go next year! 🙂

  60. Love spending time with you in Utah! Come back anytime! Miss you! xo

  61. Made it today, delicious! I didn't use the stevia, I felt like it was plenty sweet without it 🙂

  62. I know it is cold out here in the Northeast but this smoothie was the best part of my day today. Thank you!

  63. This will be great for my fiance's son to have after school! He loves PBJ anything.

  64. This sounds AMAZING, but then again I am a sucker for anything pb & j related :).

  65. Sure, you can! I personally prefer it with real peanut butter after a workout, but sometimes use PB2 or Better Than Peanut Butter.

  66. How about making this more calorie friendly by using PB2, or one of the other peanut butter powders that have removed the fat.
