PB+J Smoothie

I made these delicious smoothies for breakfast yesterday, and I was so happy with how they turned out,  I wanted to share the recipe! I like that they look a little fancy, but are a playful take on a childhood sammie. 
Peanut butter and jelly smoothie, two layer smoothie, bilayer smoothie, mixed drinks, blueberry smoothie, peanut butter smoothie, vegan smoothie, vegan recipes, delicious vegan drink, healthy smoothie, weight loss smoothie,

For the Peanut Butter Smoothie:
1 Banana
3 TBSP peanut butter
1-1/2 cups almond milk (I used unsweetened vanilla almond breeze)

For the Blueberry "Jelly":
1 cup frozen blueberries (feel free to use your favorite berry!)
1 cup almond milk (you might not use it all!)
Fresh Blueberries (for garnish)

Blend the peanut butter smoothie ingredients together. Make sure this part of the smoothie is not too thick. You can add more peanut butter if you want to. Pour this into your glass and set aside. 

Blend the blueberry ingredients together. Don't add all the almond milk at once! Just add enough so that you get a thick,icy mixture. 

If you want to get that pretty, layered look; pour the blueberry portion into the glass slowly at first then just plop the mixture in. I used a spoon to get better control of the mixture. You can add the fresh blueberries on top (or whichever fruit you used. If you use strawberries, I'd slice one so it can rest on the rim of the glass.)
