Smoothie Recipe – Creamy Peanut Butter Smoothie


I love a good smoothie recipe, but sometimes I get tired of fruity flavors. It seems like an overwhelming majority of smoothie recipes out there are fruity or veggie and honestly? Sometimes I just want something more classic. That’s where this peanut butter smoothie comes into play. It’s like a healthy peanut butter cup in a glass! As far as smoothie recipes go, this is by far one of my favorite. The combination of flavors makes it perfect for breakfast or lunch and yes, I mix it up with my other breakfast recipes at least three times a week!

This peanut butter smoothie uses peanut butter powder and not the actual creamy stuff. I love the powder since it is so portable! When we’re traveling, I take it with me so that I can make this smoothie if I’m on the road and need a quick, nutrition packed breakfast or a protein packed lunch. Powdered peanut butter is so much easier to clean up a spill on than the jarred stuff! It also uses protein powder and brewers yeast. Brewer’s yeast can help increase your energy levels, support your immune system and is packed with chromium, protein, selenium, potassium, iron, zinc, and magnesium. Be sure you don’t substitute the brewer’s yeast with anything else because doing so will change the nutrition of the smoothie.

This recipe also includes flaxseed meal. I’ve talked about the benefits of adding flaxseed to your diet before and since it’s one of my new favorite ingredients, I love that it’s included in this smoothie recipe! It doesn’t get much better than a fantastic tasting drink that is also packed with the nutrients that our bodies need.

Speaking of nutrition? One of the reasons that this is one of my favorite smoothie recipes is that it only has 230 calories in a 12 oz serving and this recipe makes 2 servings! Low-cal, protein, vitamins and minerals? I can get on board with that, can’t you? If you really want to get that true peanut butter cup taste, you can add a small handful of chocolate chips to your peanut butter smoothie. Don’t go overboard on the chocolate chips and instead, add just enough, 1 tablespoon or so, to enhance the flavor of the base smoothie recipe. If you don’t drink all of your peanut butter smoothie, be sure to refrigerate any unused portion and drink within a day or two.

I love using Silk vanilla almond milk in this recipe, but you can use whichever type you like. Just don’t use cow’s milk or soy. It changes the taste considerably. Add all of the ingredients to your blender and blend until you get a thick smoothie consistency. If you find that your blender isn’t strong enough to blend all of the ingredients and the ice together, crush the ice first then add your other ingredients. It should come together pretty quickly.
