We made this peanut butter banana smoothie recipe the other day and it was delicious. The kids especially loved that I topped them with whipped cream for an extra special treat.

As you know, our family has been on quite a smoothie fix lately. We are loving them! If you love this, you might also like our Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Frozen Yogurt Recipe. Check out this easy Fruit Smoothie for a delicious smoothie recipe.

Why We Love This Smoothie

This is a very easy treat or snack for the kids and much healthier than ice cream. We love having these in the freezer for quick treats to grab and go.  This is also great for weekday breakfast ideas when you are in a hurry.

I am all about making life easier and quick grab and go meals like this in the freezer help to take the stress out of meal time. These are perfect for traveling and you can just grab a smoothie out of the freezer.


Ingredients - banana, milk, ice, and peanut butter
  • Bananas – You can use Frozen Bananas
  • Ice – This gives the smoothie a cool and frothy texture
  • Milk – Use any type of milk you prefer, such as non-dairy milk, almond milk, oat milk, coconut milk, or soy milk
  • Peanut Butter – We like using the creamy peanut butter. Substitute with any nut butter such as cashew butter

Additions and Variations Ideas

  • Greek Yogurt – I like to sneak in Greek yogurt in my kids for extra boost of protein. You can easily swap out ½ to 1 cup of milk for ½ to 1 cup of greek yogurt.
  • Add-Ins – You can also add ground flax seeds, chia seeds or even protein powder to the smoothies. Other additions, cinnamon, and honey. I usually start with about a teaspoon but you can more if you prefer.
  • Cocoa Powder – For a chocolate taste, add in cocoa powder and maple syrup.
  • Smoothie Bowl – You can also serve this creamy peanut butter banana smoothie in a bowl with your favorite toppings. We like to add sliced banana, oats and chocolate chips.

Expert Tips

  • Blender Recommendation – Smoothies are best made with a good blender. If you are in the market for a new blender, check out The 6 Best Blenders Under $100 of 2024. I have a Vitamix and I love it. It is old and is still going on strong. It is quite the investment to get one, but it is one investment that won’t disappoint.
  • Smoothie Consistency – If using frozen bananas, then you may need to use less ice. If you find that your smoothie is to thick, then slowly add in more milk. I usually have a little more while I blending my smoothie.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you use Milk or Yogurt in Smoothies?

You can use both in smoothies as they both provide different qualities to your smoothie.

Can I Add Frozen Bananas to Smoothies?

Yes, you can make this smoothie with frozen bananas. I often Freeze Bananas to easily add to smoothies, muffins, and bread recipes. See more Frozen Banana Recipes.

How to Store Leftover Smoothies

Smoothies are best served as soon as they are made. But if you are unable to finish, place in the fridge to enjoy later that day.

How to Freeze Smoothies

Freeze the prepared smoothies in a freezer safe jar or container. You can also freeze in ice cube trays for up to 3 months. If using the jars, allow the smoothies to thaw overnight in the refrigerator. If you freeze in the ice cube trays, you can toss the cubes in the blend with the liquid of your choice to quickly make your smoothie.
