PB&J Sammie Smoothie

Excerpted from The Main Street Vegan Academy Cookbook by Victoria Moran and JL Fields

Legumes—beans, dried peas, and soy products such as tofu—are important sources of fiber, protein, minerals, and B-complex vitamins. This recipe is a great way to get a “bean” for breakfast, because peanuts are in fact legumes! Sure you could have peanut butter toast, but how about drinking this protein-packed PB&J instead?

Serves 2 | Recipe contributed by Carmella Lanni, VLCE, Pennsylvania

1 cup plain, unsweetened almond milk or other vegan milk
1 ripe banana, chopped
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1 cup ice
1 tablespoon agave (optional)
1 tablespoon crushed peanuts, for garnish (optional)

Put all the ingredients except the crushed peanuts in a blender. Blend on high until smooth.

Pour into glasses over ice. Garnish with crushed peanuts if desired.
