In This Post:
- frozen fruit - I used banana raspberries and strawberries - if using fresh fruit, be sure to freeze before making the smoothies
- unsweetened coconut milk - a non-dairy way to add creaminess to the smoothie
- vanilla protein powder - adds additional protein as well as some flavor and a little bit of sweetness
- peanut butter - use an unsweetened, natural peanut butter for this recipe
How to Make the Smoothies:
- Start with your frozen berries in the bottom of your blender. I like to let the berries sit for 5-10 minutes to thaw just a little bit.
- Add the banana, coconut milk, peanut butter and protein powder to the blender.
- Turn you blender on - start with low speed to combine and increase speed to the highest setting and blend for about 30 seconds.
- Pour smoothies into your favorite glasses and enjoy. Garnish with a few of slices of fresh strawberry or banana and a drizzle of peanut butter.
Coconut Milk - if you don't have or don't enjoy using coconut milk, you can swap out for any other plant based milk or cow's milk
Banana - many of you seem to be looking for a smoothie recipe without bananas - in this recipe, you could swap out the banana and use one avocado or one cup of greek yogurt
How to Store Your Smoothies:
Smoothies can be stored in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. You can store a finished smoothie in the freezer for up to 3 months. Store smoothies in a large mason jar. This can be used in either the refrigerator or the freezer. If you are freezing a smoothie in a mason jar, be sure to leave 1-2 inches at the top of the jar as the smoothie will expand a bit in the freezer.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Some of my favorite fruits to pair with peanut butter are apples, bananas, and berries.
In moderation, peanut butter is very good for you. Peanut butter contains protein which supports building and repairing muscles. Natural peanut butter (without added sugar) will not raise your blood sugar and peanut butter is rich in antioxidants and vitamins.
