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 smoothie is a family favorite 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.
I am definitely a peanut butter super fan! It’s a staple in my pantry that I love to incorporate in many of my favorite breakfast recipes, like peanut butter overnight oats or PB&J smoothie bowls. These peanut butter energy balls also make the perfect snack.
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
