Recipe: Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Recipe: Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie from 100 Days of Real Food

One day I was out of berries and my girls wanted a fruit smoothie so, inspired by a blog reader, we tried a peanut butter banana smoothie instead and…yum! It doesn’t get much easier than this, and we find smoothies to be the perfect supplement to almost any breakfast or lunch. These are also super good frozen too, but more on that later.

    This was wonderful! I used dark chocolate almond milk instead of whole. It turned out to be a chocolate, peanut butter, banana masterpiece!!!
    Thanks for the recipe!

    Just tried this as an after-school snack. It was a home run. I threw in an avocado (mostly just to use it up before it went bad) and it was deeeelish. It’s also really filling; my kids didn’t immediately complain that they were still hungry like they do after finishing most snacks. I love that I’ll be able to put this in a thermos and bring it along if we need a snack on the go. Simple, quick, portable, yummy AND nutritious. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks again!

    I made this yesterday and loved it! As a single person I am wondering… if I made the whole recipe, would the remaining servings keep OK in the refrigerator? Or would the banana start to oxidize and the smoothie separate? I’d love to not have to clean the blender every time I want this treat! :)

      Hi Bridget. The banana won’t “keep” very well and would get frothy pretty quickly. ~Amy

      We put leftover smoothies in the freezer – they keep great but you will have to give them a little time to thaw.

    The peanut butter sounds great. We toss all sorts of things in smoothies but I haven’t tried peanut butter.

    I thought bananas and peanut butter were bad for “belly fat”

    This sounds delicious! I’ve just recently started doing smoothies. I was making one yesterday, but had ran out of bananas. I had Dole Dippers (frozen banana slices dipped in dark chocolate) so I tried that. The taste was fantastic! I used 1/2 cup greek vanilla yogurt, 1 cup almond milk, strawberries, the Dole Dippers, oatmeal, and a handful of spinach. I bet they would be great with the peanut butter smoothie! (think Reeses peanut butter cups!)

    Can you clarify the amount of milk? Thanks!

      Hi there. You can add milk for the consistency you’d like. The whole milk is there to clarify the type of yogurt. :)
