I am banana girl. I eat one almost every single day. If not on toast with peanut butter and honey than in a delicious smoothie like this Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie.

Bananas are essential in all my smoothies. They are what make a smoothie go from good to great because they add natural sweetness and help make it creamier.

It’s the start of summer but the heat is already almost unbearable so smoothies have become a daily thing in our home and I’m not complaining about it one bit. I love that they are refreshing, cold, and help me get in more fruit, more veggies (hello yummy Spinach Green Smoothie!), and more protein. Yep! Like all my smoothies, this banana smoothie gets extra protein in addition to the peanut butter because I use Greek yogurt which is super high in protein. It’s also really thick and creamy which makes it perfect for adding to smoothies and a whole lot better for you than frozen yogurt.

How to Make A Peanut Butter Banana Smoothies:

This smoothie is so easy to make. Well, I guess all smoothies are but this one only has four ingredients, five if you add the ice. If your bananas are frozen, you won’t need to add any ice. If you do, you’ll wind up needing to add in more milk just to keep moving in the blender. But even if you use room temperature bananas, you only need to add ice if your goal is to have a thick smoothie, otherwise it will be more on the thin side.

Anyway, like any smoothie, just toss all the ingredients into your blender and puree until it’s nice and smooth. Pour the smoothie into glasses, add a straw, and if you’re feeling extra fancy you can heat up some peanut butter and drizzle a little on top. Relax and sip away!
