Summer is upon us and all I want recently are smoothies! I guess that’s a good thing considering I could want candy or Nutella (my weakness). My friend Beth is obsessed with the PB Bowl at Nekter Juice Bar. We go at least twice a week to get our fav smoothie bowls, she gets the PB Bowl, and I get the Pitaya Bowl. Since she tells me everyday via text message how good this bowl is, I decided to try making a similar smoothie at home. Honestly, now I get why she craves it daily! At Nekter they use acai in the PB bowl, but because of my severe food allergy I had to pass on the acai, aside from that small change it turned out sooooo delish. I love the texture that Natural Delights Medjool Dates adds to smoothies. Plus it makes them dessert-like-sweet and super filling!

Peanut-Butter-and-Jelly-Medjool-Date-Smoothie-6I love this little Gold Trophy Bowl from I’ve been getting really into food styling props, home decor, and office supplies recently. Is this what happens when you grow up? You get excited about bowls?! Well if this is growing up, I actually like it! I’ve been spending my days on the Rachel George website buying staplers and tape dispensers (and this mug), someone stop me now! If I haven’t disclosed this already, I also have a candle buying problem. I’m such a girl. haha.

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

    Nutella is liquid crack to me. I see it and I instantly relapse! Made this smoothie this morning and WOW was it awesome! I would pick this over Nutella anyday!

    tried this smoothie today and was super happy about how it turned out! i’ve tried peanut butter in a smoothie before and it did not end well. at all. so i was skeptical about making this, but it was amazing! super pretty color, too.

    i also bought my first pack of pitted dates yesterday, which is super exciting! i’ll be trying your brownie date bites soon! XX

    I love this smoothie. But I substituted the banana and strawberries for mixed berries.
