Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

This ultra thick and creamy peanut butter banana smoothie recipe tastes like drinking a milkshake… and it’s good for you at the same time! 

A peanut butter banana smoothie for a healthy breakfast

I know some people swear by cold cereal for breakfast. But whenever I eat a bowl of cereal, I always seem to be hungry again less than an hour later.

Does this happen to you as well?

However, I do like the convenience of cold cereal. Sure, it would be nice to eat homemade pancakes or waffles or this Healthy Banana Bread every single day for breakfast, but who has time for that?

Especially on Mondays, I want something that doesn’t take all morning to prepare, can be made with just a few ingredients, and will hold me over until lunch.

Enter this easy banana smoothie recipe.

    This was absolutely amazing. Such a simple idea and so easy but it tastes just like a milkshake and I love that it’s healthy! I left out the salt and oats and didn’t put in sweetener or protein powder either. It didn’t need it! So it was just bananas, peanut butter, and unsweetened almond milk. I will definitely make this again — so creamy!!

  2. Bonnie says

    I was just about to make this until I calculated the calories. 954 calories is obscene for a smoothie…never mind the 45 grams of fat. I’m sorry, but this is not healthy.

      We are not sure where you’re getting your nutrition facts, but there are definitely not 900 calories in a serving of this smoothie. Katie lists full nutrition facts in the link under the recipe’s ingredients/instructions.
