This Protein PB & J Smoothie Bowl is my favorite smoothie bowl recipe. Peanut butter, strawberries, and blueberries are the perfect combo, and the scoop of vanilla protein powder will help keep you full until lunch.

Protein PB & J Smoothie Bowl

I’m loving my new Ninja Foodi® Smoothie Bowl Maker! It’s a total game-changer for making smoothie bowls. It has a built-in tamper that pushes the ingredients toward the blade to power through heavy loads. And it allows you to do this with less liquid, which is key.

What is the difference between a smoothie and a smoothie bowl?

A smoothie bowl has a thicker consistency than a smoothie because it has less liquid. Smoothie bowls are served in – you guessed it – a bowl and eaten with a spoon.


Toppings are part of the fun of smoothie bowls – they make the bowls look so pretty. I like to top mine with extra peanut butter and fresh berries. You can really get creative and customize your smoothie bowl with a variety of toppings. Below are some ideas:

  • Slivered almonds
  • Chia, flax, or hemp seeds
  • Drizzle of maple syrup
  • Drizzle of almond or coconut milk
  • Melted peanut or almond butter
  • Fresh berries
  • Granola
  • Shredded coconut

How to Meal Prep Smoothie Bowls

Smoothie bowls are great for meal prep because they only take a few minutes to blend when you’re ready to eat. Make smoothie bowl kits by portioning out your frozen fruit in baggies or containers and storing it in the freezer. Then in the morning, put the fruit in the blender with the milk, protein powder, and peanut butter and blend. Eat the smoothie bowl right away as it’s meant to be eaten cold.

Smoothie Bowl Variations:

  • If you’re allergic to peanuts, sub the peanut butter with sunflower seed butter.
  • Switch up the flavor of the bowl by using cashew or almond butter.
  • Swap the berries for blackberries or raspberries.

  1. Which protein powder do you use?

  2. The first time I made this, I used frozen blue berries and fresh strawberries. It seemed to blend well. The second time I used all frozen fruit and it was a bit more difficult to blend. If you use half frozen, and half fresh, it might blend easier. Or, let them all partially thaw. This is really good, but quite rich. I might consider cutting back on the portion next time. When on earth do us dieters actually get too full?! This is a wonderful problem to have!!

  3. As other s have said, needed to add a bit extra milk to get it to blend. Might add a bit of Splenda next time, otherwise great breakfast for a summer morning. 
    Request that the book be noted in the recipes so I can mark them in the book and not have to print them.   Thanks for the recipe. 

  4. Hi! Thank you for this delicious brekie recipe! Yeh, it is like frozen yogurt-ish for breakfast. So satisfying dish. I don’t count points, so made some subs like not only blueberry and strawberry frozies but mix berries and used homemade almond butter and also tiramisu flavored protein powder. All these made me to hope to make it again and again! Thank youuuu!

  5. I have a question about freezing this ahead of time since it is classified as a freezer meal. Would you recommend freezing in portions and then thawing overnight? Or, if you have other suggestions, I would greatly appreciate. I have to have a knee surgery and trying to prep as much as possible for my poor hubs 🙂

    • It’s a freezer meal because you need to whip up the fruit while frozen, I am not sure if it will work if you refreeze it.

  6. Like having ice cream for breakfast! This was so delicious!

  7. Not sure what I’m doing wrong but there’s no way that that’s a smoothie with frozen fruit. I added 3 times as much milk and even water to get the blender to blend it. Once I added all the extras is delicious.

  8. I love this bowl and make it all the time!

  9. Oh my gosh, this is SO good! And the consistency is perfect if you follow the recipe as it is listed. Definitely making on the regular.
