What is in a peanut butter banana smoothie?
- Bananas: You can buy frozen bananas at most grocery stores, but if you can’t find them. No worries! You can make your own at home for super cheap.
- Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt is a great addition to all smoothies because it packed with protein and has a slightly tangy flavor. Feel free to use any kind of Greek yogurt such as plain or vanilla.
- Flax seeds: Ground flax is where it’s at when it comes to smoothies because they’re easier to digest that way!
- Almond Milk: This peanut butter banana smoothie recipe calls for unsweetened almond milk, but any kind of milk or liquid will work!
- Vanilla Extract: Don’t have vanilla extract on hand? No worries! You can just nix it 😀
- Peanut Butter: We love using all-natural peanut butter in our smoothies because it’s creamy and has no additives. Our favorite brands include 365 and Smuckers.
Before you blend away in your blender, you can also add in some delicious add-ins to increase nutrition and/or add more flavor. Here are some suggestions:
- Mini chocolate chips
- Protein Powder: check out our favorite ones HERE.
- Kale or Spinach
This is one of those smoothies that is best eaten thick and with a spoon. Oh, and with toppings galore. There’s nothing wrong with a handful of mini chocolate chips and a drizzle of fresh peanut butter.
