Peanut Butter ‘n’ Jelly Breakfast Shake

My husband is a big "kid" who'll often whip up this tasty shake for breakfast on the go. Your kids will love the flavor of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in it. —Loretta Levitz, Allston, Massachusetts

    Flavor was pretty good. Texture was a thin smoothie, even with a frozen banana.

    Good flavor combinations! I added a handful of frozen strawberries and cut the milk in half, as I prefer a thicker shake.

    Cool, subtly sweet, and refreshing! This will be a regular treat for my family. It is not too sweet and the consistency is just right. I used a frozen banana and it worked perfectly!

    This was quite tasty! I did alter the recipe to suit my taste. I used about 2/3 medium banana, and about 2 1/2 - 3 tbsp of peanut butter and strawberry preserves. The taste wasn't overwhelming, it was very subtle. Next time I will do what others suggest and blend it with some ice. I'd definitely make this again.

    Great for kick-starting mornings! I only did half a banana and no vanilla extract and almond milk instead. I also added 1 1/2 tablespoons of chia seeds for a heartier breakfast replacement.

    I thought it was an okay recipe. I agree that the taste was very mild. If making again, I would also add some ice cubes for more of a shake texture. The peanut butter and jelly amounts might need to be doubled because I could hardly taste them, but I could definitely taste the banana.

    This was surprisingly good. You really could taste the peanut butter & the jelly. Used almond milk & grape jelly. Be sure to process completely because jelly takes a while to blend. Next time I will add a few ice cubes to make to colder & frothy

    I made this last night for my supper.It was very good.I used crunchy peanut butter and strawberry preserves.I thought it was very mild.One thing I did notice was that it seemed frothy.I may have blended it too long.Other than that,very delicious.Would definitely make again.
