Ingredients to make peanut butter smoothie

  • Peanut Butter: Use an all-natural peanut butter, and one that is without any sort of added sweeteners. The goal here is to have a peanut butter in which the flavor really shines through. Peanut butter is loaded with protein, fiber, and healthy fats to keep you feeling satiated. You could switch the peanut butter out for another nut butter. It’s also really easy to make your own peanut butter!
  • Bananas: The bananas add that delicious, ice cream like texture, and that nice amount of sweetness and flavor. It brings the high potassium, fiber and satiety that only a banana seems to deliver.
  • Almond Milk: The almond milk is used as a liquid base that makes it extra creamy. Low in calories and low in fat, almond milk can be pretty nutritious to add to your smoothies as compared to regular milk.
  • Greek Yogurt: The yogurt adds a thick creamy texture and great protein to the peanut butter banana smoothie to help keep you full.
  • Oats: Use rolled oats or quick oats to help bulk up the smoothie, so it has almost a milkshake-like consistency. Oats also add wholesome good-for-you fiber for gut-health.
  • Use your favorite nut butter. Any nut butter will add the creamy flavor and texture of peanut butter. Use your favorite variety. 
  • Any plant-based or dairy milk will work. Coconut or soy milk works in place of almond milk. If you aren’t vegan, you can use regular milk, as well. 
  • Rolled or quick oats both work. The oats will be blended into the smoothie, so you can use whatever you have on hand. I don’t recommend using steel-cut oats, however. 
  • Add vegetables for more health benefits. You can add spinach or cauliflower for more vitamins and minerals without changing the flavor of the smoothie. 
  • Use Nutella instead of peanut butter. Nutella adds an intense, sweet flavor and the same texture as peanut butter. Only add this for special occasions, as Nutella is loaded with sugar.
Ingredients to make the recipe: Milk, bananas, peanut butter, greek yogurt and rolled oats


How to Make a Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

You can whip up this peanut butter banana smoothie in just a minute. There’s no prep required as long as you have a frozen banana. If not, you can use a room temperature banana and add a couple ice cubes for a thick and cold smoothie.

After running the ingredients in a blender for a minute, taste the smoothie and add additional milk if it is too thick. You can also add some sweetener if you’d like, but it shouldn’t be necessary if you use a ripe banana. The recipe makes enough for two 12 ounce cups, which is what’s pictured.

Tips for Making the Best Almond Milk PB Smoothie

  1. Don’t add ice to this smoothie when you blend it. Ice will dilute the drink and because you are using frozen banana, you won’t need it. I also like to use chilled almond milk.
  2. Use overripe bananas. The riper the bananas, the sweeter and more flavorful they will be. Overripe bananas also contain more antioxidants than just ripe ones. Smoothies are a great way to use them up!
  3. Blend the smoothie for at least a minute. If you are using a standard, rather than a high speed blender you may need to blend it for up to 2 minutes to get it nice and smooth.
  4. Use chilled almond milk. Using cold ingredients across the board helps create the thickest, richest smoothie.

Frequently asked questions

Can you make smoothies ahead of time?

Smoothies are best to enjoy as soon as they are made. As soon as the fruit is oxidized they start to lose their nutrients, so if you can have it right away. If you can’t enjoy it straight away, keep it in an air tight container for up to 24 hours. After that time it will start to deteriorate.

What kind of blender is best for making smoothies?

A high-speed blender is best for making smoothies or other blended dishes with bulky ingredients. Their heavy-duty design and high-speed blades blend even bulky or frozen food items very well.

Can you make it vegan?

This smoothie contains Greek yogurt, so it is not suitable for vegans. However, you can use a dairy-free substitute if you wish.

        1. Yep! Old fashioned oats is really just another term for rolled oats. Why they have to make things confusing is beyond me. Lol
