Went to spend a week in Missoula, MT this summer with my little sister and her boo. We got smoothies at the local fancy grocery store. I liked my smoothie a lot. Since then, I’m a fan of adding pb and granola to berry smoothies.

What you will need

1/2 cup granola

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup Greek yogurt

2 cups frozen blueberries

1 cup water

How to cook

Get all your stuff up in that blender.

Dump in your granola. I like to start with the granola because it's the least likely to gum up the blade at first.

Any yogurt will work fine here. I love the tanginess of greek yogurt, but just use your favorite.

Give it a go. Add the water to get it running through the blade smoothly. My blender comes with a plunger for just this purpose. It's the right length that it will get stuck on the lid before the shaft hits the blade.

Mmm looks good. I find adding a cup of frozen strawberries and subbing water for oj makes a huge impact in taste. add some honey as well for some extra sweetener. 🤔

Cool, that makes sense. Definitely I add a variety of berries sometimes, and even the occasional mango. I'm not a huge fan of the orange flavor in smoothies for some reason personally. In this case, the granola was very sweet, and the end result was great, but I do love honey and would never recommend against it.
