Thick, creamy, and healthy Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie!  My favorite!

In the summertime I crave smoothies. Wait a minute, that’s not right. I crave smoothies all year long! Especially this easy Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie, made with just four ingredients in a matter of minutes.

I like to make all kinds of smoothies, but I have to say this one is my absolute favorite. Because, um, peanut butter. Can’t get enough of the stuff! We go through peanut butter like crazy in our house. Mostly because I bake with it. And William eats a pb&j sandwich pretty much daily. Julia still won’t touch peanut butter though. I don’t get it. How can you not like peanut butter, even in cookie form? Maybe one day she’ll come around.  😉

The ingredient list for this smoothie is simple. There’s peanut butter, obviously. And banana (of course). I add Greek yogurt for creaminess and extra protein, and milk to thin it out a bit. Although even with the milk this smoothie is really thick and creamy, which I love. If you want your smoothie a little thinner just add more milk.

I often blend up one of these Peanut Butter Banana Smoothies mid-morning, when I need a quick snack.  It’s the perfect way to refuel when I’ve got a lot to do.  I can even take this smoothie on the go with me if I need to run errands or take the kids to swim lessons.

Now let’s get going on the weekend fun!  We’ll be heading to my Grandma’s pool for some family fun later on today, and tomorrow should bring some time for relaxing.  How about you?  What are your weekend plans?

  5. I love smoothies, and there’s nothing like the peanut butter banana combo! I generally don’t like pulling out the blender first thing in the morning and do it later for a post work out snack. This smoothie is on my list to make!

    • I’m the same Marcie, every once in a while I’ll make a smoothie for breakfast, but more often it’s my morning or afternoon snack. If you try this one I hope you like it!

  6. Thanks for reminding me that I need to stop thinking about making healthy smoothies and start making them. This is so good and good for you!
