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!
Whether you’re enjoying it for breakfast at home or on the go, as post-workout fuel, or as a mid-afternoon snack, this smoothie is super satisfying and refreshing! It’s packed with protein, several servings of colorful fruit, fiber, and more. The greek yogurt and peanut butter make it super creamy. You’ll love it on a warm spring or summer day!
My personal favorite methods to freeze these fruits:
Bananas: Peel and dice them while they’re fresh and on the riper side, then store them in an airtight container in the freezer
Blueberries: Wash them while they’re fresh, dry them off, then store them in an airtight container in the freezer
Small glass food storage containers are my preference over ziplock bags as they’re more eco-friendly!
Thick and creamy like a milkshake, this Banana Cherry Smoothie is super satisfying and refreshing at any time of day! It has the perfect amount of sweetness from the banana and apple juice, the perfect amount of creaminess from the Sunbutter and greek yogurt, AND the perfect amount of rich flavor from the dark cherries. It only takes a few minutes to throw everything together!
Cherries are such an underrated frozen fruit to have on hand, but happen to be one of my personal favorites! They have such a deep flavor that holds up wonderfully when frozen. If you have any leftovers after this smoothie, add them into a bowl of hot or overnight oats, or into a yogurt bowl! (You can check out my article on frozen produce here.)
Reminiscent of a classic banana and peanut butter combo, this Banana Peach Sunbutter Smoothie is thick and creamy like a milkshake! The addition of the peaches gives it a bit of extra sweetness and bulk but does not compromise the flavor at all. The sweetness of the fruit balances perfectly with the “nutty” flavor of the Sunbutter in this super filling, nutrient-dense, quick and easy meal.
Falling in between a lighter milkshake and a decadent smoothie, this sweet treat only requires 4 ingredients and makes for such a satisfying snack on a hot summer day! It’s thick and creamy while frozen and icy at the same time, all while packing a nutritional punch with lots of vitamins, protein, and fiber. (For additional creaminess, feel free to substitute a higher fat greek yogurt if that’s your preference!)
This 4 ingredient smoothie is one of my go-tos for that post-workout time of day! I love how filling, creamy, and satisfying it is, all while packing a big nutrition punch! I’ve tried lots of variations including using different yogurt varieties as well as adding in extra Sunbutter when I’m looking for something more filling, so do a taste test and adjust the ratios to your preferences!
2 Cups Frozen Strawberries
3/4 – 1 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt (nonfat or full fat both work)
1/2 Cup Apple Juice
2 Tablespoons Sunbutter (or more if you want more of the “nut butter” taste!)
Blend half of the frozen strawberries, the yogurt, and the apple juice in a blender
Once blended, add in the Sunbutter and second half of the strawberries and blend again
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!
This 4-ingredient snack couldn’t be easier to make! Keeping a stash of a variety of frozen fruit in the freezer is so helpful when creating smoothies on a whim. I love combining handfuls of it with some sunflower seed butter and water which beautifully blends into a sweet, creamy, and refreshing snack that just so happens to be vegan and gluten free!
This is a snack-size portion, but if you were looking for more of a meal you could easily double the measurements. I love drinking this as a side with a sandwich at lunch, or as a mid-afternoon bite. It’s one of my favorite ways to add a couple extra servings of fruit into my day!

Last week our temperatures rose to nearly 100° and it’s only April! When the heat is that intense, the kitchen becomes filled with iced (decaf) coffees, margaritas, and of course, smoothies. This Healthy Sherbet Smoothie is a new favorite! It’s super thick like a shake, only requires 4 ingredients, and is both protein and vitamin-rich. It makes for a great snack to beat the heat!
The frozen fruit makes this smoothie icy and thick while the greek yogurt adds creaminess. The juice and the frozen fruit create the perfect amount of natural sweetness as well. Whether you’re in need of a post-workout cool down or a summer poolside treat, it’s ready in 5 minutes.
NO PREP NEEDED FOR THIS HEALTHY SHERBET SMOOTHIE
Simply throw the ingredients into the blender and enjoy!
