If you’re having a peanut butter craving, pass up the peanut butter bar and give this smoothie a whirl for an alternative option that has no added sugar.

Ingredients

  • whole milk – Feel free to use an alternative milk like oat milk or almond milk.
  • vanilla extract – There is a huge difference in price between natural vanilla extract and artificial vanilla extract which is why I go for the artificial these days, including in this recipe. I buy the club size to save even more money because I use it often. However, every now and then I will splurge on the good stuff because nothing beats that pure flavor. If you can afford it, go for it.
  • cocoa powder
  • peanut butter – I usually use natural, smooth peanut butter but the regular peanut butter works as well if that is what you prefer.
  • frozen banana slices – Freeze your own or buy them pre-frozen and pre-sliced!
  • fresh banana slices – optional garnish
  • cinnamon powder – optional garnish

How to Make it

  1. Add ingredients to blender. Add the milk, vanilla, cocoa powder, peanut butter and bananas to a blender.
  2. Pulse. Pulse until smooth. You may need to stop the blender and mix the contents around a couple of times because it is a thick smoothie and you want to make sure you get all of the chunks blended.
  3. Serve. Transfer to a glass and garnish with fresh banana slices on a mini skewer. Sprinkle with some cinnamon powder if desired.
