Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie Recipe | gimmesomeoven.com

So, pretty sure I saw a massive bag of over-ripe bananas on sale at the store last week for $0.88 and bought…

…TWO bags.

Oh yes.  I’ve been going a bit “bananas” this week trying to work them into all sorts of recipes.  So keep your eyes “peeled” for some stellar banana baked goods coming soon.  (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)  ;)

But anytime I have good bananas in the house, I can’t resist making one of my favorite protein-rich treats for breakfast — this Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie!  I posted a version of this back in the early early days of the blog, and then deleted it because the photos looked unbelievably unappetizing.  But I’ve tweaked the recipe since then and updated the photos.  And lemme tell ya — this is a darn good smoothie.

It’s easy to make, full of all sorts of delicious and healthy and protein-rich ingredients, and it’s the perfect use for ripe or overripe bananas.  So tap into your inner Curious George and give it a go…

As with any smoothie, this one takes about 2.1938 minutes to make.  Super duper easy.  Here’s how:

Let’s start with the ingredients.  No big surprises here — just some Greek yogurt, milk (any kind), vanilla, ice and of course the peanut butter and banana.  I also usually add in some flax seed and/or chia seeds nowadays, but do what you wish.

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

You’ll love this peanut butter banana smoothie!! It’s easy to make, and packed with protein-rich ingredients that will give you lots and lots of energy.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large banana, peeled
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 heaping Tbsp. peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, store-bought or homemade

Directions:

In a blender, combine all ingredients.  Blend until smooth, and serve immediately.

Ali’s Tip:
To give this some extra chill, try using frozen bananas! :) Often if I bring home more than I can use (before they ripen), I’ll go ahead and peel them, cut them into somewhat small pieces, and pop them in a bag and into the freezer. They’re definitely great to have onhand!

  11. I tried this out. It was fucking delicious! I skipped out the cardamon powder because I didn’t have it. But even without that it tasted amazing! I’m totally new in the world of smoothies and can’t wait to try out your other recipes! Thanks a lot for sharing.

    • Whoops! I meant I skipped out on the Vanilla extract + Ice. I didn’t have either of those and the milk was at room temperature.

      Coming up next, going to make your green smoothie (the spinach one). I’m planning to get store brought ginger paste that I’ll keep in the refrigerator (since I find it a chore to grind ginger).

  14. This was a great smoothie. I think what made it extra good was the vanilla extract/flavoring. Mmmmm yummy… as an extra note, I didn’t want to make banana bread so I used really ripe (as in completely brown peel) bananas, yes two because I love banana’s. It would taste the same with one but when they get over ripe then tend to shrink…. One full tummy of approval!!! Loved it!
