Finally sharing the recipe for the Strawberry Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie
(and all it’s versions) that we’ve been making on repeat the last few weeks.
gluten-free, dairy-free, packed with nutrients and so delicious!
If you follow me on Instagram Stories, you’ve seen me make
several version of this smoothie in recent weeks…
a classic Strawberry Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie
a Summer version using fresh peach in place of banana
and, a green version by simply adding a handful of kale.
They are all
super easy to make, making them perfect for breakfast, snack or dessert!
So let’s make them!
Quick note before looking at the ingredients…..
There is a
cooking video on this page. If you are new to this website, there is a printable recipe with exact measurements and directions at the bottom of every recipe page.
So let’s take a look at the ingredients.
The Basic Smoothie is just 5 ingredients:
banana (frozen or fresh)
peanut butter (option to add a bit more if you love peanut butter!)
almond milk (or milk of choice)
A quick note on bananas…
You can use fresh, frozen or a combination. Frozen will make it thicker. We tend to use a combination — half frozen and half fresh but you can play with it and see what you love.
Either way, all you do is place the ingredients in your high speed blender according to your blender’s instructions and blend!
We use a
Nutribullet blender (amazon affiliate link) which we just keep on our counter because it is so compact.
Super simple, nourishing, satisfying and so delicious!
While some in my family have been enjoying this on repeat, as you can see by all the photos from Instagram Stories above,
I have been loving a Summer version of the same smoothie…
fresh peach for banana and add
a little frozen mango in place of some of the frozen strawberries
Same basic smoothie but a slightly different fresh taste…
I loooove the flavor and the color so much!
A few additional pro tips….
Sometimes, I’ll use a combination of almond milk and water for my own smoothie. Adding some water in place of almond milk makes it a little less creamy, a little more about the fruit.
But I never use less that 1/2 almond milk for flavor.
And sometimes, I’ll add a knob of fresh ginger because I love ginger!
And lastly, whether you try the banana or peach version, you can always add a handful of greens or 2 leaves of kale, and it will change the color and add nutrients but not impact the flavor much.
The color will vary depending on the amount and color of your greens.
So as you can see, it’s one basic recipe with a lot of ability to adapt to tastes or just switch it up from day to day. And it’s always delicious!
Whatever version you choose, hope you love it!
