Peanut Butter Banana Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

Yields: 1-2 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 large ripe banana (frozen is best for a thicker texture)
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter (or almond butter for a different flavor)
  • 1 cup milk of your choice (almond, soy, dairy, oat, etc.)
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (optional, for extra creaminess and protein)
  • 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup (optional, adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Ice cubes (if not using a frozen banana)

Instructions:

  • Prep the banana: If your banana is not frozen, peel it and cut it into slices.
  • Combine ingredients: Add all the ingredients to a high-powered blender. Start with the liquid ingredients (milk, yogurt) to help the blending process.
  • Blend! Blend on high speed until completely smooth and creamy. If it’s too thick, add a splash of milk, if too thin, add a few more ice cubes or some frozen banana.
  • Taste and adjust: Give your smoothie a taste and adjust sweetness or add a pinch of cinnamon if you’d like.
  • Enjoy! Pour into a tall glass and enjoy immediately.

Boost It: Optional Add-Ins

  • Protein powder: Add a scoop of your favorite vanilla or chocolate protein powder for an extra boost.
  • Spinach: Throw in a handful of fresh spinach for an undetected dose of greens.
  • Chia or flax seeds: A tablespoon adds fiber and healthy fats.
  • Cocoa powder: A tablespoon transforms this into a chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie.

Tips

  • Ripe bananas: The riper, the sweeter the smoothie will be.
  • Frozen fruit: Using frozen banana eliminates the need for ice and makes a thicker, more refreshing smoothie.
  • Customize: This is a very adaptable recipe. Feel free to adjust the ingredients and sweetness to your preference.
