Peanut butter and Banana – is there a better combo?! This peanut butter banana smoothie recipe always hits the spot. It can almost be enjoyed as a treat or a dessert since it tastes so yummy!

As a busy mom I need quick, nutrient dense snacks and meals at my fingertips and smoothies are always great options.

They are easy to throw together, flavors and varieties are endless and who doesn’t love a good smoothie?!

Summer days are hot so you’ll find me sipping on this peanut butter and banana smoothie recipe on repeat!

Ingredient Notes:

  • Bananas: frozen bananas to keep the smoothie cold and adds the perfect touch of natural sweetness
  • Peanut Butter: use your favorite creamy peanut butter or powdered peanut butter
  • Yogurt: Greek yogurt or your favorite non dairy yogurt
  • Milk: Cows milk or your favorite plant-based milk
  • Vanilla Extract: to add a little extra flavor boost
  • Cinnamon
  • Ice (optional): I usually add a small handful of ice to make the smoothie extra thick and creamy. If you use frozen bananas you won’t necessarily need to add it!

How to make a peanut butter and banana smoothie:

  1. In a high powered blender, add in all ingredients and blend on high for 30 seconds – 1 minute or until smooth and creamy.
  2. If necessary, add in more milk or frozen bananas to reach desired smoothie consistency. More milk will thin it out, more frozen bananas will make it thicker!

Expert Tips and Variations

  • Make it a chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie by adding in 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • Add in nutritional boosters like ground flaxseed, chia seeds, hemp seeds or a scoop of your favorite protein powder!
  • Add in veggies if you’d like: a handful of spinach or frozen cauliflower would be perfect additions.
  • Adjust your smoothie: add more liquid if you prefer it more on the thinner side or add more frozen bananas to thicken it up!
  • Taste and adjust: add a touch of honey if you feel like it needs to be sweeter.
  • Use ripe bananas: using frozen ripe bananas will help give the smoothie the perfect amount of natural sweetness.
  • Use frozen fruit: this helps to keep the peanut butter banana smoothie thick and cold.
  • Top off the smoothie with a drizzle of peanut butter and banana coins if you’re feeling extra!
