If you’re a fan of smoothies with a milkshake-like consistency, this Peanut Butter Blueberry Banana Smoothie is for you! It’s ridiculously thick, has no added sugar, and is made with just 4 basic ingredients!
2 Small Frozen Bananas
Approx. 2 Cups Frozen Blueberries
1/2 Cup Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt
1/2 Cup Cold Water
3 Tablespoons Peanut Butter
Blend together all of the ingredients except the peanut butter in your blender of choice
When I’m in need of quick and easy plus delicious and nutritious, I love coming back again and again to a combination like these Peanut Butter Blueberry Yogurt Bowls. The ingredients are likely items that you have in the refrigerator or pantry already, and certain ingredients can absolutely be substituted for what you have on hand!
The Plain Greek Yogurt – Use whatever variety you love! I enjoy a nonfat option but a full fat choice would be delicious as well.
The Cereal – This is mostly for texture and crunch, but I do really love the flavor profile of a Wheat Squares or Wheat Waffles option. A similar cereal of choice or a granola would work here as well!
The Blueberries – I love the Frozen Wild Blueberries for their small size and the way that the juices melt into the mix, but if you prefer to use fresh give it a go!
The Peanut Butter – I love a peanut butter that includes the taste of salt. For me, having that ever so slight sweet and salty combination makes all the difference, which is why in my particular ratios I tend to go pretty heavy on the peanut butter!
I’ve linked all of my personal brand recommendations within the ingredient list, but the point of this easy peasy meal/snack is that it’s customizable to your preferences!
This fruity peanut butter combination is perfect on a hot summer day as a snack, light meal, or post-workout recovery treat! It’s nice and creamy as well as high in protein, fiber, and lots of colorful fruit. Nutritious and delicious!
I don’t know about you, but I like my smoothies to be super thick to the point that they’re basically ice cream! Truly a milkshake consistency, this smoothie is high in protein and fiber, super filling as a post workout meal, and an all-around tasty way to get some more fruit into your day!
2 Servings Frozen Strawberries
1 Serving Plain Greek Yogurt (I use nonfat)
1/2 Cup Oat Milk
3 Servings Powdered Peanut Butter – Around 6 Tablespoons Dry (I use Betty Lou’s Inc.)
Blend in your blender of choice! For the best consistency, first blend the banana, half of the frozen strawberries, the yogurt, and the oat milk. Second, blend in your powdered peanut butter. Finally, blend in the other half of the frozen strawberries.
It tastes like a PB&J sandwich turned oatmeal bowl! It’s not overly sweet, and the textures of the oats, cherries, and creamy peanut butter topping make for a super satisfying yet ridiculously easy breakfast on hectic mornings. Bonus – They’re vegan and gluten free!
1/2 Cup Quick Oats with Water (I love Bob’s Red Mill – Gluten Free)
