A super simply and super quick shake recipe that takes us back to a well loved combo. We health it up by making the peanut butter and jam into a shake instead of a sandwich, and it tastes oh so good!
Ingredients
For the Peanut Butter Layer
  • 1 cup (250ml) almond milk
  • ½ cup (125mll) quinoa flakes (oats would work as well)
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean powder
  • ½ banana, frozen
For the Strawberry Layer
  • 5 large strawberries, de-stemmed
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 4 tbsp water
Instructions
  1. Start by making your strawberry layer. Simply mix the chia seeds with the water and set aside so it can become a gel, about 5 minutes. In the meantime, crush your strawberries with a fork in a small bowl.
  2. When the chia seeds have become a gel add them to the strawberry bowl and mix everything together. Add to the bottom of a glass or mason jar.
  3. Make your peanut butter layer by adding all the ingredients to a blender and mixing until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute.
  4. Carefully pour your peanut butter mixture into the glass/jar containing the crushed strawberry chia, use a straw to slightly mix the two, and enjoy!
Notes
PEANUT BUTTER - make sure you buy pure and organic peanut butter, without any added oil or nasties.

VANILLA - If subbing, use 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or the seeds from 1 whole vanilla stalk.

NUT-FREE - use sunflower seed butter instead of the peanut butter.
