A Favourite: Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie | Mama Papa Bubba

Grae and I have been making versions of this delicious smoothie since she was a wee little thing, and it remains a favourite.  It’s nutritious, filling, and tastes more like a thick and creamy milkshake than a good-for-you smoothie.  {Milkshakes for breakfast? Yes please.}

We most often add a leafy green to add a punch of veggie goodness (truthfully, we’re so accustomed to drinking green smoothies that it sort of feels like a waste to not include one), but today we slurped them up without.  Either way is super yummy, and I promise that adding a couple of big handfuls of spinach or kale will only change this smoothie’s colour – not its taste!

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie {with oats & chia}

  • 2 ripe bananas, frozen
  • 1 cup of your milk of choice (almond or coconut are especially delicious!)
  • 1/2 cup of plain yogurt
  • 4 tablespoons of old-fashioned oats
  • 3 tablespoons of all-natural peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla
  • 2 big handfuls of kale or spinach leaves {optional}

 

Put ingredients into a blender and blend well.  Top with cinnamon, hemp hearts, chia seeds, or a dollop of peanut butter if desired.

Enjoy!

  1. This is sooo amazingly delicious…it tastes like I’m drinking a candy bar for breakfast, yet I know it’s packed full of nothing but nutritional goodness (I even added a huge handful of spinach leaves)! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
