A favorite sandwich from your childhood turned into a healthy smoothie bowl: these peanut butter and jelly smoothie bowls are absolutely delicious! Full of frozen strawberries and all natural peanut butter, they really do taste like the childhood classic!
My obsession began when I had a leftover peanut butter cookie and leftover strawberry ice cream . . . I warmed my cookie in the microwave, thawed my ice cream at room temperature for a bit, and drizzled the whole concoction in hot fudge . . .
I’m telling you, I died right there and went to heaven.
That’s DEFINITELY not the healthiest combination, PLUS I’m all out of cookies and ice cream.
In an attempt to curb my craving in a healthier way . . .
