I wish I could give you “the perfect” smoothie base, but the truth is, I like to make smoothies in a few different ways.

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

The key to a good smoothie is to keep the ingredient list relatively short and to know your ratios. My favourite ratio is 1 cup milk to 1/4 cup Greek yogurt to 1 frozen banana and then add in stuff from there.

For this peanut butter and banana smoothie my add-ins are simple: just peanut butter (duh!), chia seeds and a sprinkle of cinnamon. It’s my favorite!

And yeah, I’ve made peanut butter and banana smoothies before on this blog and shared them with you. It’s one of those flavours I will keep coming back to in every form again and again (I hope you don’t mind!!)

I’ve made a chocolate peanut butter and banana smoothie that is a real treat made with chocolate almond milk and avocado. Yum!

Another really tasty option is my peanut butter, banana and oat breakfast milkshake which is similar to this one but does not have yogurt in it and gets its thickness from the oats and extra peanut butter (a choice for when you want to be more indulgent…which should be more often than not).

Oh! And I also have a green peanut butter banana smoothie recipe which is pretty much the same as this one but has spinach in it. It’s important that you have them all!!

So grab a blender and get smoothie making! It doesn’t matter what time of year it is to make these. They’re awesome.

    I love peanut butter and banana smoothies, I think this is the smoothie I make most often. Except for strawberries and cream (a.k.a cottage cheese and vanilla protein powder). I also like my smoothies thick so I use 1:1 ratio of greek yogurt and milk.

  2. Banana is definitely my go-to base for all smoothies. Love the idea of chia seeds for extra protein! x

  3. Oooh, I bet your smoothie base would taste pretty epic with TJ’s new pumpkin cookie butter! I still need to try to get my hands on a jar of that… šŸ˜‰

  4. The chia is totally key to a good smoothie in my book. Love it!

    My go-to smoothie used to be peanut butter banana. And then I started buying a bulk container of spinach and my go-to smoothie became spinach banana.. which isn’t nearly as delicious. Currently: my fridge is spinach free AND I’ve got frozen bananas in the freezer so what I’m trying to say is I’M MAKING THIS TONIGHT! <3

      Oh boy!! I like making this with a handful of spinach in it once and a while too! You know? To be greedy! šŸ™‚

  8. PB and banana smoothies are my favorite! And I agree, the fewer ingredients, the better šŸ™‚

  9. It is like you read my mind! I am going away for a long weekend and had a couple of “dalmatian” bananas sitting on the kitchen counter that I know I wont have the chance to demolish before going away, so I popped them in the freezer šŸ˜€ Thanks for the recipe! x

  10. I like banana. Thank you for guide.

  11. Simple but perfect! I love banana anything lol! I also freeze mine so that I don’t have to add ice. I bet the chica seeds give it an extra texture! That’s brilliant my friend šŸ™‚
