This copycat Peanut Butter Moo’d smoothie has more vitamins & minerals than its Jamba Juice counterpart without sacrificing that peanut buttery goodness.

Though I enjoy Jamba Juice year round, my favorite time for enjoying their smoothies is during spring and summer. There’s just something about sipping an Orange Dream Machine on a hot day or even better, indulging in a Peanut Butter Moo’d with protein boost (’cause that means it’s extra good for you).
That’s why I could hardly contain my excitement when I created this copycat Peanut Butter Moo’d smoothie recipe featuring ingredients I always have on hand including Carnation Breakfast Essentials in Rich Milk Chocolate.
For reals. I always have this chocolaty powder on my Walmart shopping list because it’s my mom’s breakfast—and often lunch—of choice.
Using Carnation Breakfast Essentials for the Peanut Butter Moo’d chocolate base means this copycat recipe is packed with more vitamins and minerals than its Jamaba Juice counterpart and many of the other copycat Peanut Butter Moo’d recipes out there.
Details like that make me feel so much better about downing two full servings…something I may have done during this photo shoot.
Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder is a great option when you have middle school kids who often always run late for carpool. It beats your typical cereal bar by boasting 21 vitamins and minerals, 13 grams of protein and as much calcium as a 6-oz. cup of yogurt.

And don’t worry, if you’re not a fan of Rich Milk Chocolate (wait, do such people exist?), you can try Classic French Vanilla, Classic Chocolate Malt, Dark Chocolate or Strawberry Sensation.
