Banana & Peanut Butter Smoothie

Banana & Peanut Butter Smoothie

Today’s recipe is one that I’ve been meaning to blog for a while.. a healthy smoothie recipe with one of my favourite ‘new’ ingredients.. peanut butter! I say ‘new’ as I’ve only just recently tried it (can you believe it!).

Peanut butter is SO good for you as it’s packed with protein, healthy fats and Vitamin E – essential for beautiful skin! This smoothie is DELICIOUS.. so creamy and yet SO good for you.. and all in just 270 calories 🙂

P.S it’s part one of the video above!

[ingredients]

*If you swap 1 tbsp of peanut butter for 2 tbsp of PB2 then the smoothie is only 209 Kcal, 37g carbs, 7g protein and 4g fat.

**For a chocolate kick also add 1 tsp of cocoa!

P.S I always get asked what blender I have and it’s a Waring Pro Blender .. it’s fantastic and great if you make smoothies several times a week (it’s heavy duty!).

    I always love a bit of peanut butter an hour before I do a run as it gives me a lot of energy, so I decided to make this today before heading out later and it is amazing!!! Really simple ingredients, really simple to make and most importantly it is really tasty!! Will definitely be making more of these before exercising now! Thanks Nic!! xx

    Hi this recipe is yum, I like to chop up bananas and keep them in the freezer. This means I have banana on hand for smoothies all of the time and it’s nice and cold – no need for ice.

    • January 9, 2014 / 5:55 pm

      I do that too 🙂 Great tip! Thanks for your comment Edel! x

    If I make this and put it in a protein shaker to take to work would it be ok or is it best to drink straight away?

    • February 2, 2014 / 2:53 pm

      Because of the banana it may go slightly brown but should still be tasty if fairly chilled 🙂 x

  12. February 14, 2014 / 10:37 pm

    What other fruits could I try instead of bananas? what would you recommend Nic?

    • February 15, 2014 / 1:35 pm

      I would use any that you like! Mango or pineapple perhaps?! x

      • February 15, 2014 / 7:34 pm

        fab I give it a go thank you, though about strawberries but like sound of pineapple wouldn’t of thought of that Thanks! x

        • February 16, 2014 / 8:37 am

          Oooh yes strawberries would be nice – you should check out my other smoothie recipes too.. maybe a green monster with spinach and blueberries and banana?! x

          • February 20, 2014 / 1:59 pm

            Yeah been looking at that one to, as I love blueberry!! And smoothies so its a win win!!! ^-^ xx

    You may have said this and I may have missed it, but would you recommend drinking your smoothies after my work out for people looking to lose fat and build muscle? And if so, would they be instead of a meal? or could I eat a meal a few hours later?
    Thank you

      Hello! It’s all about calories in vs calories out for weight loss.. I like smoothies as a snack or sometimes for a light breakfast 🙂
