One of my favorite flavor combinations is peanut butter and banana. The nutty and creamy peanut butter flavor mixed with the sweetness from the banana is a match made in heaven. And what better way to combine the two then make a thick and delicious smoothie?! Yes please!

This is one of my family’s favorite smoothie recipes and is often on rotation. It tastes almost like a milkshake, but much better for you. I love the nutritious boost that the peanut butter adds. And sometimes we even throw in a handful of oats, spinach or strawberries as well.

Ingredients

  • Milk: You can use whichever type of milk you prefer, like 2%, skim, non-dairy or coconut.
  • Greek yogurt: Not only does Greek yogurt keep the consistency smooth, it adds extra protein as well.
  • Banana: I love to use frozen bananas when making smoothies, because they make the texture extra thick. You can use fresh bananas too.
  • Peanut butter: Not only does it make your smoothie perfectly creamy, but it adds 8 grams of protein, 2 grams of filling fiber and 12 grams of unsaturated fat in each two tablespoon serving.
  • Vanilla: I always include a splash of vanilla in my smoothies. I love the extra hint of flavor it adds!
  • Honey: You can add honey to sweeten up your smoothie a bit. There is already some sweetness from the banana, so you don’t have to include it if preferred.
  • Extras: Feel free to add in extras like vanilla protein powder, collagen, flax seed and/or chia seeds

How to make peanut butter and banana smoothie

  1. Add ingredients to blender and blend. Combine milk, Greek yogurt, banana, nut butter and vanilla in a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  2. Taste and adjust as needed. Taste and add honey to sweeten if needed. Add more milk to thin it out, or ice to make it thicker.
  3. Add any extras and enjoy! If desired, add in vanilla protein powder or collagen for extra protein. Enjoy!
