Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie Recipe |

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.


  • 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


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!

  1. Hi, does anyone out there know how to adjust this for a nutribullet I tried to make this and ended up with quite a few ice shavings still intact and even a couple of lumpy banana pieces that weren’t blended.

    Also, if anyone with diabetes is out there, is this ok for diabetics?

  7. I’ve been on this for quite some time. I make this for breakfast and lunch. Good combo and very nutritious. It’s a delicious way to lose some pounds. ;)

  8. Hey! I love this smoothie!!! You can also add some kale in it because it doesn’t change the flavor or texture, but you can sneak in some healthy greens in there. Also you can eat banana peel. Just cut the banana in half through in both sides with the the peel. This gives it more of a banana taste and also provides you with all of the vitamins that banana peels have in them. It’s is my go-to smoothie!!

    • Thanks for sharing Emily, we bet kale would be awesome in this! We’re happy you like the smoothie! :)

  10. I don’t personally care for almond milk. Can I use regular milk for this recipe?

    • Yes, you can use whatever kind of milk you like! We hope you enjoy the smoothie! :)

  19. What is the purpose of the yogurt? Does it make it smooth, etc. (Cause I don’t have any on me right now and I’m too lazy to go out-do I need to include it?)

    • It’s for thickness and creaminess — you can skip it if you want, it will just be a thinner consistency.

  20. I didn’t have greek yogurt on hand, so I adapted this recipe by adding some cacao powder and hemp seeds to complement the peanut butter and blended with my nutribullet. It was delicious, will be making again!!

    • Those sound like awesome adjustments Steph! We’re glad you enjoyed this! :)

  32. Hello first of all great recipe! Second I was wondering if I could make this without the yogurt? I’m lactose intolerant and can’t eat it. I was going to use almond milk as well. Thanks!

    • Thanks Ali! And yes, you can definitely make this without the yogurt (it won’t be as thick, but it will still be yummy)! We hope you enjoy! :)
