Smoothies can be fun–they don’t always have to be packed with veggies and spinach. Sometimes, a smoothie without the greens is what the doctor ordered and this Strawberry Peanut Butter Smoothie is a classic in our house.

Smoothies with health benefits are certainly what I love as well. My Anti-Inflammatory Blueberry Smoothie is one of my favorites of all time. It’s my go to for when I need to get all the goodness in. But this smoothie and this Almond Joy Smoothie are my favorite fun smoothies. More like milkshakes–at least that is what my 3 year old calls them!

Why you will love this:

  • It’s kid friendly. The ingredients in this Strawberry Peanut Butter Smoothie are all kid approved. This means I can have a helper in the kitchen with no upturned nose. Funny though, my little guy actually asks for spinach in his smoothies so we have to add it often to this as well!
  • Basic ingredients. At any given time, I have everything in this smoothie on hand. No ingredients I haven’t heard of, and nothing I have to run out and grab 9 times out of 10.
  • Fills you up. This smoothie has peanut butter and protein powder–both help pack some extra power to your drink.

Ingredients and Substitutions:

  • strawberries: for an extra cold, thick smoothie, opt for frozen. Fresh can be used or you can freeze your own strawberries ahead of time.
  • frozen banana: opt for frozen over fresh. This is one I would not substitute.
  • milk: I love unsweetened vanilla almond milk in my smoothies, but also use whole milk sometimes. Your favorite milk or dairy free milk beverage should be great.
  • peanut butter: whatever is in the pantry is great. If you have an allergy, almond butter or another nut or seed butter can be substituted.
  • vanilla: just a slight touch is all you need
  • protein powder: This is optional, but great if you are looking for another option to boost the fuel power of this strawberry peanut butter smoothie. I opt for vanilla protein powder, but chocolate could be delicious too.
  • optional: you can add a touch of sweetener, especially if your berries are a bit tart. I have added a couple teaspoons of honey or maple syrup before.

How to make this smoothie:

Nothing to it really. Add everything to a high powered blender and blend it up.

For best results, add the milk first and then top everything else on top. Add extra milk if the Strawberry Peanut Butter Smoothie comes out too thick. Add sweetener if desired.

Enjoy!

Notes and Tips:

  • I find that using a tamper helps when making a smoothie and aiming for something extra thick. No one wants a a soupy smoothie, right?
  • Make sure the protein powder that you use is one that you enjoy. If the powder tastes like dirt, no smoothie is going to cover it up. Check out this list of the best tasting powders. We have used unflavored collagen peptides as well and that has been a great option as well.
  • Feel free to add some other ingredients to this Strawberry Peanut Butter Smoothie. Chia seeds, flax, cinnamon, hemp seeds and so much more.
  • To make a smoothie bowl, start with one cup of milk and then adjust to make desired thickness.

    This is absolutely delicious! My little ones and I love it for a last minute lunch. Is the nutrition info for 1 serving or the whole smoothie? Also how much is one serving?

      Hi! Nutrition is per serving. Each serving is roughly a bit more than a cup. Glad you loved it!!
