If you know anything about me, you know that I love food. I love to cook. Love to eat. The whole shebang. One of my favorites to make for friends is this recipe Chicken with Savory Almond Butter Sauce. I make the sauce with JUSTIN’S® Classic Almond Butter, sliced mushrooms, and shallots—which are like garlicky onions. It gives it an amazing flavor that everyone at your party is sure to remember.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie in clear cups with white and gray striped straws on a white background

I would say something like “Enjoy the taste of childhood PB&J with this Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie,” but that would imply that adults don’t eat PB&J sandwiches. That is not true at all for this adult. If you love Peanut Butter & Jelly just as much as me, then you will like this smoothie.
