The Elvis Smoothie

Here’s a Super Smoothie fit for a king — or more specifically, The King himself. This Elvis Smoothie is made with a bit of added almond milk, peanut butter, and bacon.

You might be saying to yourself, “Hold on their little darlin’…what does Elvis have to do with a quick breakfast smoothie?” Well, hold onto your blue suede shoes, because you are in for a culinary surprise.

According to lore and his former cooks, one of Elvis’s favorite food concoctions was the PBBB sandwich. So what is, exactly, what has been dubbed the greatest celebrity food recipe? Quite simply: Peanut butter, banana, and bacon.

This treat is an easy and nutritious breakfast using our Cacao Super Smoothie as a base — which includes banana as well as cacao nibs and powder, kale, sunflower seeds, and collagen protein. Just add peanut butter, a healthy liquid, and bacon, and we’ll bet you can’t help falling in love with this treat.

And while this decadent treat may pack on the pounds, we are happy to share our healthier take on Elvis’s contribution to gastronomical history with a smoothie garnished with some ButcherBox bacon.

Tip: For a quick, easy recipe to get crispy bacon every time, check out this video from ButcherBox Head Chef Yankel Polak.
