This peanut butter banana smoothie is perfect for a post workout or even a morning smoothie. Personally, I like to have it after a workout, even though I do not add protein. However, I have started using collagen from Trader Joe’s and it does contain some protein. Whatever works for you is fine! Peanut butter banana smoothies are the best because they honestly taste like a milkshake… that is healthy so keep that in mind ;). I like to add a lot to my shakes like chia seeds, flaxseeds, and fiber, which to be honest I can not really taste it but I know some people can. For instance, my mother, she loves peanut butter but will not even try to drink it lol. Perhaps it is the unsalted peanut butter that only contains peanuts and not Jif Peanut Butter. I get it from Trader Joe’s as well… wow so much love for them.
Something that I really love is how much fiber you get from the banana, peanut butter, chia and flaxseeds, and of course from the fiber powder. There will be a whole post on why I have been so obsessed with fiber and I promise after you read it you will be screaming for fiber! Okay, maybe not but you will want to start adding it more to your diet.
I have recently started to add peanut butter granola on top of my smoothie. It is kind of like an acai bowl but not an acai bowl… It adds more to the smoothie to help keep you full for longer. Also, love how it adds a crunch to the shake and honestly granola is really starting to grow on me. It also contains 10 grams of protein and has FIBER. Count how many times I have said that word. Let me know what you think of this peanut butter banana smoothie, and what are your favorite smoothie recipes?
