The taste is similar to the childhood classic, but with cashew butter and blueberries this smoothie is brought up to age and multiplied in health benefits. It is a recreation of my current fav from our local smoothie place, Organic Squeeze. The menu may allege it to be "kid friendly" but that doesn't mean adults can't enjoy it too.
I took oldest sis to Organic Squeeze after a spin class while she was in town last week. I insisted she try the CB&J. She loved it. One of my roommates and I are hooked on this flavor too, so I've been set on recreating it. With a few rounds of testing I think I got it to taste to be just like the original.
P.S. the pink himalayan sea salt is key! It gives it that little salty bite you find in a PB&J sandwich! And I find no problem with having pink salt around the house.
yields 1 smoothie, inspired by Organic Squeeze
1/2 - 3/4 cup almond milk, depending how thick you like it
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 frozen banana
1 Tbsp. cashew butter
2 Tbsp. oats
1 tsp. flax seeds

Throw all your ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Start with the lower amount of almond milk and adjust to your preferred level of thickness.
