about this recipe

I love starting my day with an easy smoothie recipe!

This peanut butter fruit smoothie is naturally sweetened with frozen strawberries and frozen bananas.

It also has multiple sources of protein and healthy fats for a filling, nourishing meal to carry you through the day!

I love smoothies because they come together quickly and you can use almost any combination of fresh, frozen or pantry ingredients to make them.

Plus, the fast prep time makes them super easy to blend, pour & take on the go.

So they’re a great, quick choice for a healthy breakfast or snack.

process & tips

All you need to make this strawberry banana peanut butter protein smoothie is add all your ingredients to a blender and let it work it’s magic.

Before you know it you’ll be sipping on a delicious, nutrient dense fruit smoothie with peanut butter!

I wanted to make this strawberry banana peanut butter smoothie with almond milk and no yogurt to keep it plant-based and dairy-free.

But you could certainly add yogurt if you want to bump up the protein even more.

You can also add ¼ cup whole rolled oats to bump up the fiber.

Finally, feel free to add 1 cup of baby spinach to make this a green smoothie!

how to make a strawberry banana peanut butter smoothie bowl

You can also turn this recipe into a smoothie bowl by making the smoothie thicker using only ¾ cup milk.

Also, make sure to use frozen berries and frozen banana to help you get that thick consistency.

Once blended, pour into a bowl and add your choice of smoothie bowl toppings.

Tip: Some fun topping ideas would be nuts, seeds, sliced fresh fruit, granola, honey, cacao nibs and an extra drizzle of peanut butter.

ingredients & modifications

Frozen banana: You can also use fresh banana in place of frozen banana in this recipe. The banana adds some natural sweetness to the smoothie.

Frozen strawberries: Fresh or frozen strawberries work in this recipe. You can also substitute any berries such as blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries.

Unsweetened peanut butter: I like unsweetened peanut butter in this smoothie but you can use any other type of nut butter you like in its place. For a nut-free option, be sure to use sunflower seed butter.

Ground flax seed: Ground flax seed adds a bit of fiber and a dose of plant-based protein. I find it easier to use ground flax seed but you could also add whole flax seeds if you have a high speed blender. 

Protein powder: You can use any protein powder you like the taste of. To keep this recipe vegan friendly, be sure to use a plant-based protein powder. To keep this recipe paleo friendly, be sure to use a grain-free and dairy-free protein powder.

Almond Milk: Any non-dairy milk will work great in this recipe, so if you don’t prefer almond milk you can use cashew milk or coconut milk instead. If you like a thinner consistency in your smoothies, add more milk. For a nut-free option try hemp milk or oat milk.

Tip: If using fresh strawberries and fresh bananas in place of frozen, be sure to add extra ice to the blender for better texture.
