Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie


Anyone that has lived with me knows that this smoothie is what I run off of. I think back to my student days (not so long ago) and rushing from exams to class to the library and lugging a magic bullet container with this pure energy of a smoothie. I may not drink coffee, coke or energy drinks but peanut butter banana smoothies are what continue to get me through hectic days.

 This smoothie is also my go-to revival for after my long hour and a half runs on the weekends. It is refreshing and always hits the spot.

I included this photo because I absolutely love opening a new container of yogurt. There are those little bubbles on the top that I just think look pretty cool. It is also more heavy (fat wise) before I stir it… which tends to taste pretty good…

A good friend of mine introduced me to a simple dessert of plain yogurt drizzled with maple syrup. Pretty Canadian eh? But it is actually super tasty, I highly recommend it to ‘sweet tooth’s like myself that want to make some healthy sweet treats… if that is even possible…

I like this smoothie because I can make it as sweet as I like. On days when it needs to be less sweet I won’t add the maple syrup, but on days where I need an extra boost, I may just drown the smoothie with a few extra tablespoons of maple syrup.

There you have it! A great grab for those on the go or for any occasion to switch up the beverage choices! Hope you enjoy!!

  1. This looks amazing, Anna! I can’t wait to try it! Nick was just saying the other day that we have to get in the habit of making more smoothies and putting our blender to good use.

  2. Okay, so I finally got around to trying this recipe, and it was so good that I made it three times in only two days! It is PERFECT for before/after a workout, just like you said. Today, I made a variation of your recipe. I subbed in a handful of sliced strawberries instead of banana and a tablespoon of cocoa instead of the peanut butter. It tastes like chocolate-dipped strawberries! Both of these smoothies are my new go-to snacks when I am craving something delicious. Thanks for sharing, Anna!
