Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
The smoothie making saga continues, and this peanut butter banana smoothie recipe is one that HAD to be shared. I personally love a peanut butter smoothie of any kind, but this particular recipe does have a special place in my heart because it is one of the first smoothie recipes I ever created.
After years of eating a banana with peanut butter almost every morning for breakfast, I decided that I could use a little change of pace. I tested out a few different recipes until I finally perfected this smoothie recipe.
I should add a quick side note and mention that I sometimes refer to this as a peanut butter banana protein shake. The recipe includes protein powder, which is a standard smoothie making practice for me because of the thickness that protein powder adds. Whether you call them smoothies or protein shakes, this recipe is a must try if you’re a fan of peanut butter and banana.

Using Peanut Butter Powder
I am a sucker for creamy peanut butter. I love using it in smoothies, with fruit, on pancakes, you name it. That being said, peanut butter can be a bit high in calories and fat when you use a lot of it. In order to keep my smoothie recipes on the healthier side without sacrificing any delicious peanut buttery flavor, I like to use a combination of real peanut butter and peanut butter powder.
You can usually find it at most grocery stores, but I like to just order it and have it sent directly to my house haha. I personally love this PB Fit Peanut Butter Powder.

Raw Honey VS Imitation Honey
In this particular peanut butter banana smoothie recipe, I use raw honey to sweeten it. That’s mostly due to the fact that I like the flavor combination of peanut butter, banana, and honey.
However, if you are looking for a low sugar or sugar free sweetening option, sugar free imitation honey might be a great option for you. I personally use Honey Tree Imitation Honey all the time for sugar free baking, and it tastes just like the real thing. You can get it HERE.
Peanut Butter Banana SmoothieJuly 18, 2021
- 1 cup milk
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I LOVE the Pure Protein Vanilla Cream Whey Powder)
- 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
- 2 tsbp peanut butter powder (My favorite is the PB2 original peanut butter powder)
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoon honey
- ½ banana
- 1 cup ice
- Pour the milk into the blender. (I recommend pouring the milk in first so you can use the measurement marks that are on the blender itself.) Then, add the remaining ingredients.
- Blend until smooth. Many blenders have a smoothie button or setting you can select which usually works great! (If you’re looking for an AMAZING blender that will last for decades, I would 100% recommend a Blendtec Blender. I’ve had mine for almost 7 years and I don’t know what I’d do without it!)
