#ad These Peanut Butter and Jelly Fruit and Crunch Wraps are the perfect #backtoschool recipe, using Jif + Smucker’s, granola, and freshly sliced fruit!

Oh my goodness – these are so good!

Thick creamy peanut butter, sweet and tart strawberry spread, crunchy granola, and then fresh strawberries and bananas. It’s the perfect back to school recipe! I’ve had to get creative after an entire summer of soggy camp lunches. Now that the kids are back in school, I’ve had to make better lunches for school days. And let’s face it – peanut butter and jelly are made for each other. And that’s where Jif® Natural Peanut Butter Spread and Smucker’s® Natural Strawberry Fruit Spread come in. I get them at Walmart, in order to make my favorite Peanut Butter and Jelly Fruit and Crunch Wraps. They’re divine!

I have a soft spot in my heart for all things peanut butter and jelly. Legend has it that my late father packed a peanut butter and jelly sandwich every day of his life as a school teacher. I think he also ate it on weekends, and as a kid too. He was a man of lunch routine and I have so many questions about those sandwiches, and what made them so good? Des had a play date over the spring, and I made the boys peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The boy’s mom stayed for the play date as well and I made her a sandwich too. She told me I make GREAT peanut butter and jelly sandwiches because I spread the peanut butter and jelly on thickly. I aim to please! And that’s the only way I want to make them. I want to make them well.

Speaking of which, I really did commend myself aloud the first time I made these crunch wraps. They are that good. It’s the perfect mix of flavors. And now it’s time for you to pack them a lunch they will love for back to school season. Like I said, peanut butter and jelly are better together and Jif & Smucker’s are better together too! In fact, these are the go-to brands for the perfect back to school PB&J. I remember my mom making it for me and when fall comes, I still feel like I’m a little kid on the brink of big change. That’s why I’m glad some things stay the same – like lunch. The same, but something new:

Peanut Butter and Jelly Fruit and Crunch Wraps:

What You Need:

Jif Natural Peanut Butter Spread
Smucker’s Natural Strawberry Fruit Spread
Honey wheat wraps
Granola
Bananas, thinly sliced
Strawberries, thinly sliced
A touch of cinnamon (optional)

What You Do:

1 – Take out your wrap and spread peanut butter thickly on it, followed by jelly

2 – Then add granola, but try not to add big chunks – and spread it out evenly

3 – Add bananas and strawberries to the middle of the wrap

4 – Then roll it up like a sushi roll, careful to get everything all nice and stacked in the middle

5 – Cut in half and enjoy!

Tada! Like I said, I was pretty proud of myself the first time I made this – for myself during a lunch break at home. Then I tried this recipe out on the kids and they were super impressed. You can absolutely vary it up, but I’m a big fan of these specific tastes going together. I’m a busy parent and I like to know what works, and then make it work on the regular! I’m like my father that way, and I remember being that way as a kid – when opening up my school lunch every day.

Dunkin’ Extra Extra Creamy Frozen Pineapple and Banana Smoothie

Dunkin' Donuts Extra Extra creamer is what everyone is talking about. Made with real cream, real sugar, and now in two new flavors, Vanilla Extra Extra and Caramel Extra Extra, this creamer is taking the coffee world by storm.

Extra Extra, read all about it here. My Extra Extra Creamy Frozen Pineapple and Banana Smoothies are where it’s at!

I knew I was onto a good thing because I made up a blender full of these and every member of my family wanted one. That really doesn’t happen often. Personally, I’m a dairy-loving smoothie girl. Des loves bananas. Cassidy and Scarlet love pineapples and cold and refreshing drinks. I will tell you that these smoothies have a secret ingredient, though. I’m pretty sure the best recipes have secret ingredients. It’s really not-so-secret, though, because I’m going to tell you all about it! It’s Dunkin’ Donuts Extra Extra Creamer, which is wonderful in recipes! And you can use a variety of flavors in smoothies.

Dunkin’ Extra Extra creamer has real cream and real sugar, and helps kick any recipe up a notch. For me, it was all about that smooth creaminess. Whether it’s camp or class parties, picnics, family gatherings, girls’ nights out, or breakfast, this creamer is here to help make your recipes delicious. For us, mornings are a little rough. Sometimes more than a little. So I like to make my recipes more.. extra. More something. I basically need something that’s going to help me manage 13 animals, two kids, two careers, and a whole lot of chaotic mornings. That said, we have fun too. It’s fun chaos.

Organized chaos? Chaos with creamy smoothies?

Dunkin’ Extra Extra Creamy Frozen Pineapple and Banana Smoothies:

What You Need:

2 ripe bananas, sliced and frozen for a bit
3-4 cups frozen pineapple chunks
3/4 cup of milk of any kind
3/4 cup Dunkin’ Extra Extra creamer
1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract

What You Do:

1 – Place all ingredients in your blender and make sure they’re broken up and not clustered together
2 – Run the blender until the smoothie is smooth – might take a few minutes
3 – If it’s too thin, add more pineapple and if it’s too thick, add more milk and creamer
4 – Serve and enjoy! This made four servings

Basically if I can elevate an already incredible recipe, that’s like elevation squared. And I’m in.

It’s so refreshing for or with breakfast, and it also makes a wonderful evening snack. And if you’re in the mood for a little get together, it’s so easy to make up to 4-6 smoothies in one sitting. A little goes a long way, and it’s so delicious. Also, Dunkin’ Donuts Extra Extra creamer also comes in Vanilla Extra Extra and Caramel Extra Extra. Both would work here too!

Do you use secret ingredients in your smoothies too?
