If you’re a peanut butter banana person, this is the smoothie for you. It’s everything you love about peanut butter and banana, in a thick and cold smoothie. That tastes a lot like a milkshake.

But unlike a milkshake, it’s a lot healthier!

How to Make a Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

There is no prep work needed for this smoothie. It’s as simple as adding these four ingredients and blending until smooth. High-speed blenders work great. 

Smoothie Ingredients

Bananas: You can use frozen banana slices, or you can peel a banana, break it into chunks and add it to the blender. Your choice.

Frozen bananas will give the smoothie a thicker, creamier consistency. Fresh bananas will result in a more liquidity smoothie.

If you want frozen, slice a banana and freeze overnight, or for a few hours. I like to keep frozen banana slices in the freezer for quick and easy snacks.

Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt is my favorite yogurt to add to smoothies. It’s packed with protein and is a nice balance to the sweetness of any fruit. 

Milk: This recipe calls for 1/2 cup of milk, but that could be almond milk or any milk of your choosing.

Peanut Butter: Creamy peanut butter gives this smoothie the perfect consistency. Use your favorite brand.
