    Actually jelly isn’t animal friendly if it’s made with sugar that was refined with bone char, so you should have some way of checking that. There’s a list here; http://www.peta.org/about/faq/Are-animal-ingredients-included-in-white-sugar.aspx of companies that do not use bone char in the refinement process, but you’d have to check with the company that makes the jelly (and other products that contain sugar), or use home made jelly. There is however a very nice french style of jelly that uses fruit concentrate instead of sugar to sweeten the flavour. Bit more expensive I’ve found though.

    You’re probably thinking of gelatin – which is animal-derived. Jelly is fine! :)

  • kjoarcik says:

    I’m just learning about being Vegan, but isn’t Jelly not animal friendly or am I wrong? Maybe I’m thinking of Jello because of the ground animal bones…someone enlighten me please! I’m new and still learning.

  • amber says:

    whats so unhealthy about it? I think it looks yummy and you must be mental if you think people are getting obese from vegan smoothies..

  • GrandParadise says:

    Sounds like a wonderful vegan treat and better than a bunch of cookies! I’m will fix me one of these tonight!

  • emilyjace says:

    Obesity kills? Come on. 2 tbs of peanut butter will set you back 188 calories. It’s full of protein and monounsaturated fat is healthy. Don’t have three smoothies a day but enjoy yourself!

  • dannanichole says:

    I made this today for myself and my toddler.. It was fantastic!!

  • Zoe says:

    Oh come on, it’s not unhealthy. Oats have remarkable cholesterol lowering properties and if you use oat milk you double the goodness. There’s not a huge amount of peanut butter, and anyway peanuts contain niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, thiamin, riboflavin, choline, vitamin b6, vitamin e, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, copper, manganese and selenium. Bananas and strawberries are not only delicious but full of vitamins and great for you too.

  • Magdalena says:

    Thats just perfect! It’s much better and healthier than those Mcdonalds foods or what not! Leanne, stop whining and try to be a little positive for a change. If you are overweight, try to exercise. People and children are going to eat p & jelly sandwitches anyway, and this shake even contains oatmeal and fruit. If you want to give an overweight child something sweet but healthy too you could try this shake and put some biological, healthy selfmade peanutbutter and jelly in it and it will be a snack with healthy calories and it will be delicious as well! Jumm!!

    Actually, it IS pretty healthy. Calorie content for entire recipe is going to be around 510 – but it makes 2 servings, so that is not bad at all. Yes, there is fat, but it is fat primarily from the peanut butter, which is unsaturated fat and good for you. This is a perfectly healthy snack containing healthy fats, ample protein, a serving of fruit, and a good dose of fiber. People become fat or obese by eating TOO MUCH relative to their energy expenditure – period. Yes, I am a health and fitness professional. Enjoy this yummy snack guilt-free!

  • honey says:

    actually there would be very little in this bad for you as peanut butter is good for you. it would be a healthy treat

  • eleflumpy says:

    i reckon that’s pretty healthy and am gonna go make one similar now for a post work out refuelling…. jelly maybe the worst thing in it – so add more fruit!….. and PB is excellent fat!….. obesity is a killer – so is malnourishment and anorexia..

  • J says:

    If you made it with natural pb, unsweetened soy milk and reduced sugar jelly, it certainly is and it’s definitely healthier than a standard milkshake. Just because something has a high fat/calorie content doesn’t necessarily mean it’s “unhealthy” especially if consumed by somebody who follows a healthy diet and exercises.

    using almond milk:
    calories 227/serving
    fat 6.38/serving
    !!sounds good!!

  • Mei says:

    Yup. Super unhealthy. Because it’s the unsaturated fats in peanut butter that’s killing Americans with heart disease and high cholesterol. This smoothie sounds super yummy and I’ll be trying it out for breakfast tomorrow.

    PS. For one serving the smoothie is about 275 calories and 11 grams of fat, so I’ll take my chances.

  • riri says:

    well theres nothing glaring bad in it either leanne. fruit is an important dietary staple and milk has calcium. oatmeal is good for you too

  • Joanne says:

    are you serious leanne? Look at the ingredients and the fact it’s a smoothie. Who binges on smoothies anyway? It’s a one off thing and it’s delicious!

  • TwiztidFox says:

    Theoretically Unless Using Sugar Soaked Strawberries Or Peanutbutter / Jelly Full Of Artificial Additives Or Pure Sugar It Should Be A Pretty Healthy Smoothie. Over Indulgence In Anything Could Be Bad, Simply Stick To A Serving And Your Fine

  • Krislyn says:

    I don’t think it would be that bad, calorie-wise. Certainly not worse than the sandwich itself, with the bonus of having no bread. It could make a pretty filling breakfast smoothie, or a treat to have once in a while.

  • gizmo922 says:

    How is that not healthy?! Seriously?

  • Leanne says:

    Not exactly healthy though, is it? It would be interesting to know the calorie and fat content. Obesity is a killer.
