Ripe bananas and natural peanut butter create an addictive, salty-sweet flavor combo in this protein-packed Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie– perfect for breakfast or any time of the day.

Hi. My name is Liz and I’m a peanut butter-aholic. Specifically, I am addicted to Koeze natural peanut butter roasted locally here in Grand Rapids. It’s a problem, friends. I can’t get enough of this peanut butter made with two simple ingredients: roasted peanuts and sea salt.

Aside from maybe chocolate, few foods taste better with freshly roasted, salty peanut butter than a perfectly ripe banana. My Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie combines the best of both worlds and is morphed into a well-rounded breakfast thanks to yogurt, milk and oats.

Speaking of yogurt and milk, this marks the third and final easy, no-cook dairy recipe that I demonstrated at the Mitten Moms conference. With kids back in school and the return of hectic morning schedules, this smoothie comes together in just minutes similar to the Overnight Refrigerator Oats and Avocado Toasts shared previously.

Thanks to the protein and vitamin packed dairy ingredients, all three of these breakfast ideas will give your family long lasting energy throughout the morning and avoid a mid-morning sugar crash.

What is your favorite no-cook breakfast recipe?? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie – A delicious and creamy smoothie that will satisfy your chocolate craving without any guilt. A healthy breakfast, dessert or snack.

A smoothie that tastes like a milkshake? Yes, please. This is the perfect smoothie for those times that you need to satisfy a chocolate craving, or throw together a breakfast on the go, or hit the reset button because you ate two-thirds of a Cinnamon Roll Cake (ahem).

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

The name says it all – chocolate, peanut butter and banana are the main flavor components in this smoothie. Here’s how to whip it up!

  • Milk (your choice): My favorite is unsweetened vanilla almond milk, because it is low in calories and sugar. Feel free to use cow’s milk or any non-dairy milk of your choice.
  • Chocolate: Unsweetened cocoa powder adds a rich chocolaty flavor and color to this smoothie. If you want it extra chocolatey, you can throw in a handful of dark chocolate chips or cacao nibs during the last few seconds of blending.
  • Peanut Butter: Natural salted peanut butter is my favorite. Use whatever peanut butter you have, or swap for another nut/seed butter.
  • Frozen Bananas: Frozen bananas not only add the banana flavor, but they add a touch of sweetness and they help to make the smoothie a nice thick consistency.
  • Honey/Maple Syrup/Agave: Depending on the sugar content of your milk product, you might need to sweeten the smoothie just a touch. A drizzle of honey, maple syrup or agave blends in perfectly. Adjust to suit your taste.
  • Protein: I like to add a scoop of collagen peptides or protein powder to make this smoothie extra filling and satisfying. I prefer unflavored or chocolate flavored for this smoothie.


Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie with Protein

This smoothie gets its protein from protein powder or collagen peptides, peanut butter, as well as any protein in the milk you use. Cow’s milk will add 8-10 grams of protein per cup. There are also non-dairy milks that are enriched with added protein. Feel free to swap any of those for an additional boost of protein.

Note: The nutrition facts listed below include 1 scoop of protein powder; you can easily increase the protein by adding another scoop.

Healthy Chocolate Banana Smoothie

I refer to this smoothie as healthy since it is made of whole, nutrient-rich ingredients. It’s fairly low in sugar (as far as smoothies go), with all of the sugars coming from natural sources. The following ingredients can be added to bump up the nutritional value further:

Spinach: A few handfuls of fresh baby spinach will be undetectable tastewise. The spinach will alter the color of the smoothie to a murky greenish-brown, but as long as you’re not put off by the color, throw it in!

Hemp Seeds: This an ingredient I often add to smoothies. It adds omega 3’s, omega 6’s and protein.

Chia Seeds: These little seeds are loaded with fiber and they will thicken the smoothie. They are almost completely undetectable if blended in near the end.

Whether you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth first thing in the morning, mid-day, or late night – this is perfect way to do so. A healthy meal, snack or dessert that is guaranteed to satisfy. Enjoy!

Looking for a way to use up your ripe bananas? Enjoy a tall glass of creamy Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie this summer for a satisfying breakfast or afternoon snack.

Smoothies are the best quick and easy breakfast, and they hardly require any ingredients! I usually opt for a fruity smoothie like strawberry banana or peach, but sometimes I like to have something a little more indulgent tasting like this peanut butter banana smoothie!

healthy, sweet, and creamy!

I am banana girl. I eat one almost every single day. If not on toast with peanut butter and honey, then in a delicious smoothie like this Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie.

Bananas are essential in all my smoothies. They are what make a smoothie go from good to great because they add natural sweetness and help make it creamier.

It’s the start of summer, but the heat is already almost unbearable, so smoothies have become a daily thing in our home and I’m not complaining about it one bit. I love that they are refreshing, cold, and help me get in more fruit, more veggies (hello yummy Spinach Green Smoothie!), and more protein.

Yep! Like all my smoothies, this banana smoothie gets extra protein in addition to the peanut butter because I use Greek yogurt which is super high in protein. It’s also really thick and creamy which makes it perfect for adding to smoothies and a whole lot better for you than frozen yogurt.

How to Make A Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie:

This smoothie is so easy to make. Well, I guess all smoothies are but this one only has four ingredients, five if you add the ice.

Note: If your bananas are frozen, you won’t need to add any ice. If you do, you’ll wind up needing to add in more milk just to keep moving in the blender. But even if you use room temperature bananas, you only need to add ice if your goal is to have a thick smoothie, otherwise it will be more on the thin side.

JUST BLEND! Anyway, like any smoothie, just toss all the ingredients into your blender and puree until it’s nice and smooth. Pour the smoothie into glasses, add a straw, and if you’re feeling extra fancy you can heat up some peanut butter and drizzle a little on top. Relax and sip away!

tips and FAQ:

Banana tips:

  • Use ripe or overripe bananas. They’re sweeter and become creamier when blended than newer bananas.
  • Keep a stash of frozen bananas to use: buy several bananas and allow them to ripen on the counter. Slice each banana and put them in separate baggies. Place all the baggies in a larger freezer safe airtight container. When you’re ready to make a shake just grab two of the baggies and toss into the blender.

What are some substitutions for allergies? If you have food allergies don’t worry! You can still enjoy this fresh banana smoothie with a substitution or two.

  • Peanut Butter: Use almond butter, cashew butter, pecan butter, even or sunflower butter
  • Milk: Use almond milk, coconut milk, or soy milk
  • Yogurt: try an almond, cashew or coconut based yogurt.

What are some healthy additives? Add ½-1 tsp of any of the following chia seeds, flax seed, wheat germ, nutritional yeast, fiber. You can also add a scoop of protein powder. To sweeten it up use ½ -1 Tablespoon honey or a sweetener such as stevia.

How to store leftover smoothie? Leftover smoothie mix can be kept in the refrigerator for about a day. Store the smoothie in an airtight container. Make sure to fill the container to the top. The less air in the container the better. Adding a little lemon or lime will also help prevent oxidation.

Smoothie bowls come in various colors (purple, green, orange, yellow, chocolate brown) and flavors but their texture is always the same: thicker than a drinkable smoothie but thinner than pudding.

Let’s talk smoothie bowls.

I’ve seen smoothie bowls popping up all over Pinterest. At first, I didn’t pay attention because honestly I thought smoothie bowls were just smoothies pour into a bowl and I didn’t understand why someone would eat a smoothie with a spoon. I didn’t get it.

But then I took more than 10 seconds to look into smoothie bowl recipes and discovered they are much more than that. It’s more like smoothie soft serve ice-cream topped with lots of wholesome goodies. Whoa!

Smoothie bowls provide texture and substance that you don’t get from a regular smoothie. Basically, smoothie bowls turn traditional smoothies into a full-blown meal with the added toppings. If you don’t feel satisfied drinking a smoothie for breakfast, but still want the goodness a smoothie provides, then smoothie bowls might be the answer. The only issue is you need to be careful with toppings because calories can easily get out of control with a handful of nuts here, sprinkle of chocolate there, and dash of dried fruit there.

For my first smoothie bowl recipe I decided to keep it super simple with one of my favorite flavor combos – banana and peanut butter! I kept the greens out this time around because I was just feeling pure banana and peanut butter.

I blended 1 frozen banana, 1 tablespoon peanut butter, 1 teaspoon chia seeds, and 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk in my Vitamix blender (a Ninja blender or food processor would work great too). I also threw in a handful of ice cubes. I only did this because my banana was not as frozen as I wanted.

The result was a smooth creamy delicious bowl of blended banana and peanut butter that seriously tasted like soft serve ice cream. Super good. If you are sensitive to dairy I recommend giving this a try because it’s a treat!

Then I topped it with 1/2 of a banana, 1 tablespoon peanuts, and 1/2 tablespoon of dark chocolate chips. Like I said this is where you need to be careful because too many toppings can cause this smoothie bowl to break the calorie bank. Because of the peanut butter this smoothie bowl is a bit on the higher side with calories and fat. However, keep in mind it’s a meal and filled with lots of wholesome goodness. You WILL be full after eating this. You can reduce fat, sugar, and calories by reducing the toppings.

I enjoyed this smoothie bowl after a 5 mile run/power walk and OMG did it hit the spot. I beyond loved it. I mixed all the ingredients together and felt like I was eating a nutritious blizzard from Dairy Queen. Not kidding.
