Creamy and Delicious Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
A well-balanced smoothie has become one of my go-to choices for breakfast. I love to pack them with seasonal fruit, healthy fats, and even greens for extra fiber.
This creamy peanut butter banana smoothie is a delicious blend of peanut butter, banana, dates, and creamy Greek yogurt. It tastes like a creamy milkshake and is so easy to make!
Banana: This smoothie gets it’s creamy texture from frozen banana. The more ripe your banana is the sweeter the smoothie will be.
Greek Yogurt: This adds a bit of extra protein and healthy fats to the smoothie. You can use plain whole milk Greek yogurt of low-fat, if you prefer.
Peanut Butter: For that rich peanut butter flavor! Be sure to use an unsweetened, creamy, all natural peanut butter without any additional ingredients outside of peanuts.
Dates: This works as a natural sweetener to help sweeten the smoothie a bit. If you do not have dates you could use a bit of maple syrup or honey instead.
Cinnamon: This spice works well with the flavor of the banana and peanut butter.
Vanilla Extract: Just a little to give the smoothie a delicious vanilla flavor.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make this recipe dairy free?
Yes! Feel free to leave the yogurt out altogether or just use your favorite non-dairy yogurt instead.
Do I have to use almond milk?
No! This recipe would also work well with cashew milk, oat milk, or dairy milk.
Do I have to freeze the banana?
You don’t have to but if you want the smoothie to be thick and creamy, freezing the banana will give you the best results.

Yes! Feel free to use almond butter, cashew butter, or your favorite nut butter of choice. It will change the flavor of the smoothie a bit but will still be delicious.

Tips and Tricks for the Creamiest Smoothie
- Add the liquids first – adding the liquids to your smoothie first will help everything to blend more evenly which will give you a smoother and creamier smoothie.
- Use frozen fruit – frozen fruit helps to keep the smoothie creamy and cold without the use of any ice.
- Ditch the ice – speaking of ice, the pitfall of a lot of smoothies is the use of ice. Ice waters down the smoothie, changes the consistency from creamy to icy, and just does not give you that delicious smooth texture that everyone loves.
