Creamy Peanut Butter Banana Smoothies are honestly my all time favorite smoothie. They are so simple to make, filling and healthy. I honestly make these on a weekly sometimes daily basis. I never get sick of them. They are that good!

With bananas as the creamy base, running natural peanut butter and vanilla almond milk its a match made in smoothie heaven. I hope you enjoy this creamy delicious treat as much as I do!

Ingredients Notes:

  • Frozen Bananas – I generally take very ripe bananas, peel them, break them in half and place them in a freezer safe bag. I always have them on hand for smoothies!
  • Peanut Butter – The runny all natural kind works best in my opinion. I always buy unsalted unsweetened natural peanut butter.
  • Almond Milk – Any plant milk will do I love to use unsweetened vanilla almond milk. The vanilla really adds that extra flavor. If you do not have a vanilla flavored plant milk I suggest adding a splash of pure vanilla extract.

How To Make:

First place bananas, peanut butter and 1 cup almond milk into blender. I generally put my bananas into the blender first, then the peanut butter and then the almond milk.

Unblended ingredients in blender.

Blend until smooth and creamy adding the additional ½ cup as needed. Whether you will need the full amount of almond milk depends on the size of your bananas as well as the power of you blender.

Enjoy!

Variations:

  • Smoothie Bowl Style – This thick and creamy smoothie would be great as a smoothie bowl. Add all of your favorite toppings. Things like extra sliced bananas, blueberries, granola and extra peanut butter drizzle would be divine!
  • Greens, Greens, Greens – I love adding spinach to my peanut butter banana smoothies. It adds a great boost of nutrition and it completely undetectable taste wise. It also makes your smoothie a beautiful green color of course.
  • Protein Powder – This is the perfect post workout smoothie. It already has protein from the peanut butter however, if you want to bump it up a notch add a scoop of protein powder.
How To Freeze Bananas For Smoothies?

First, make sure to use ripe spotty bananas for the optimal sweetness and flavor. Always remove the peel before freezing. I generally take my ripe bananas peel them, then break them in half and place them in a freezer safe bag. If you do not have a high speed blender you will want to break them into smaller pieces to ensure they blend easily. You can slice them as well although I do not find this necessary.
