I admit it, I’m a peanut butter and banana fan all the way. Thank goodness no one in my family has a nut allergy, because I would have to start making my smoothies in the detached garage. Although a smoothie lounge with comfy chairs and an electric fireplace that’s all my own isn’t such a bad idea…
Anyway! Today’s Saturday Smoothie Recipe is a timeless classic with a punch of veggies and a healthy dose of protein and some really good carbs. Meet the Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie, a favorite breakfast shake!
Now, I didn’t add any protein powder to this one, but you absolutely could. It would give it a nice kick without a lot of calories. Check it out!
Peanut Butter and Banana Saturday Smoothie Recipe
Serves: 1 adult or 2 small kids
Prep Time: 2 minutes (unless the kids are hanging on your legs…in which case it could take 5)
- 1 medium banana (this bad boy is packed with over 400 mg of potassium, over 25 grams of great carbs, and more than a gram of protein)
- 1 scoop natural peanut butter (we get ours by the 5 pound tub at a local store)
- 1 heaping handful of spinach leaves
- 1/4 cup crushed ice
- 1 cup almond milk (you could use water or another nut milk if you wanted to)

Place everything in a blender (we use this one) and blend it for all it’s worth. Seriously though, I blend for a long while when I’m making them for the kids, because they’ll never drink them again if they have to chew a spinach leaf in their smoothies. Serve in a glass or shaker cup and enjoy!
It’s that simple and, the best part is, that it’s filled with good vitamins and nutrients that your body needs. Enjoy!
