Equipment Needed

Vitamix Smoothie Making Tools
Vitamix Smoothie Making Tools

A standard blender is all that is required to make Vitamix smoothies. If you are making it for just one person, we recommend using the Vitamix One personal blender as it is the perfect size for a single smoothie and very easy to clean.

If you are making them for more than one person, we recommend a higher-end Vitamix A3500 Professional-Grade blender that can process larger loads more efficiently.

For overnight storage, we recommend using a glass or BPA-free airtight container with a resealable lid.


How To Make This Smoothie

The Peanut Butter And Jelly smoothie is very easy to make:

  • Step 1: Place bananas, grapes, strawberries, and unsweetened almond milk into a blender and secure the lid.
  • Step 2: Start the blender on its lowest speed and steadily ramp up to its highest speed. This will reduce wear and tear on the motor and blades, facilitate a more consistent blend, and help prevent food splatter onto the lid and sides.
  • Step 3: Blend for approximately 30 seconds or until a smooth consistency is achieved.
  • Step 4: Pour into a glass for immediate refreshment or place in the refrigerator in an airtight container to enjoy later.

Recipe Tips And Substitutions

For ease of use, we recommend peeling and slicing a number of bananas, putting them in a freezer bag, and storing them in your freezer for quick access.

If you don’t have frozen fruit, or simply prefer to use fresh fruit (we totally get that), we recommend adding 1/2 cup of ice to chill your smoothie and give it a pleasing icy texture.

Coconut milk or soy milk can be substituted for the almond milk and still keep this delicious smoothie dairy-free.

Yes, despite their sugar content, grapes are indeed healthy as they are packed with numerous nutrients such as vitamins C and K, and potent antioxidants like resveratrol, which have numerous health benefits, including heart health and cancer prevention. However, like all foods, grapes should be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet to maintain healthy sugar intake.

How much protein is in almond milk?

Almond milk generally contains less protein than dairy milk, with commercially prepared unsweetened almond milk typically containing around 1 gram of protein per 8-ounce (240 ml) serving. However, the exact protein content can vary based on the brand and any additional ingredients.
