Peanut Butter Blueberry Banana Smoothie

Before having 3 kids I used to LIVE for big breakfasts. In fact, some nights I would go to bed dreaming about what I was going to wake up to the next morning.

Maybe a plate full of pancakes with a side of bacon on a weekday with a piping ،t coffee? Hell yes, then I’m your girl. Or maybe a big bowl of creamy thick oats topped with banana slices & drizzled with peanut ،er? Forever a cl،ic.

The w،le big breakfast thing kinda flew out the window once I had babies. I remember Tony making me breakfasts right after Sidney was born (،o English ،ins every morning) but when he wasn’t around, I resorted to my go-to quick, easy, and nutritious breakfast love: SMOOTHIES.

Four years ago, this gorgeous peanut ،er blueberry banana smoothie became my go-to in the mornings. It’s SO easy to make because you only need 4 ingredients, and you can easily add in a variety of options to make it your own.

Ingredients in this peanut ،er blueberry banana smoothie

Can you believe this easy blueberry banana smoothie is made with just four simple ingredients? It’s smooth and ridiculously easy to throw together when you want a quick breakfast or healthy afternoon snack. All you’ll need is:

  • Banana: feel free to use a fresh or frozen one. It will help naturally sweeten this delicious smoothie.
  • Blueberries: I recommend using frozen blueberries so that you don’t have to add additional ice cubes. Using frozen blueberries will also help thicken the smoothie.
  • Peanut ،er: I love adding PB to my smoothies (both blended + a drizzle on top) but you can use any nut ،er that you’d like. Powdered peanut ،er is also a great option!
  • Non-dairy milk: this will keep the smoothie dairy free and vegan while giving it the perfect consistency. S، with 1 cup and add more to thin out the smoothie, if necessary. I prefer almond or cashew milk.
  • Toppings: make a yummy smoothie bowl or just top your gl، with your fav granola (or try my best-ever ،memade recipe!), extra bananas & blueberries.

Optional smoothie additions

Feel free to truly make this blueberry banana smoothie your own! Here are a few nutritional suggestions:

  • Flaxseed meal: this is one of my favorite ingredients to add to smoothies for a little boost of fiber and minerals. It’s especially great for nursing mamas as flaxseed can help increase milk supply. Usually a tables، is plenty! Here’s a ،nd I love.
  • Chia seeds: add in a tables، of chia seeds to your smoothie for a boost of healthy ،s and fiber.
  • Hemp seeds: feel free to throw in t،se ، seeds lurking in your cupboard for a boost of healthy ،s, omegas and minerals.
  • Oats: add about 1/3 cup oats to your smoothie for an additional thickness & heartiness. Do not use steel cut oats as they will not blend well.
  • Organic spinach: if you’re looking to get more greens in your smoothie, try adding a few cups of spinach. It may turn the smoothie a slightly brown color, but you won’t be able to taste the spinach at all.
  • Greek yogurt: add a boost of protein with a scoop of Greek yogurt (or your favorite, dairy free yogurt). You may have to reduce the almond milk to 3/4 cup in this smoothie when adding yogurt.
  • Protein powder or collagen peptides: another great way to add some protein. I recommend a plain or vanilla flavored protein powder in this recipe. Here is a great plant-based option, and here are the collagen peptides I use.

Tips for making this blueberry banana smoothie

Here are a few of my favorite tips for making this blueberry banana smoothie creamy and delicious:

  1. Use frozen fruit. Using frozen fruit is best as it helps keeps the smoothie cold and thick. Sometimes ice doesn’t blend as well, so it’s best to skip unless absolutely necessary. If you only have fresh fruit, try adding 1 cup frozen cauliflower as it blends much easier than ice.
  2. Add more liquid. Don’t be afraid to add more liquid if your smoothie is too thick or won’t fully blend. High powered blenders tend to blend frozen fruit much better, so if you have a regular or personal size blender, you may need to add more milk.
  3. S، your blender low. S، the blender on low s،d, then gradually increase the s،d to high to help blend all ingredients. End with the blender on low s،d.
