Peanut butter banana smoothie, doesn’t really sound like a new invention. I don’t really care at this point, though, because it tastes so incredibly delicious. I had this smoothie in Mexico a few weeks ago and immediately fell in love. We stayed in an exciting hotel in the middle of the jungle on a beautiful lagoon. The breakfast there was just amazing and there was a great selection of smoothies, juices and elixirs. My favorite was the peanut butter banana smoothie, which I recreate in this recipe to my own liking.
Peanut butter banana smoothie
Do you like vegan smoothies as much as I do? For me, they can be very rich and creamy. Juices, on the other hand, I also like very much and alternate accordingly. I see already, it’s time to also publish some power juices on this blog. Do you feel like it?
Let’s get back to today’s smoothie made with frozen bananas, peanut butter, dates and hemp seeds. This all goes together in the blender and is mixed into a fine, creamy smoothie. The bananas should definitely be frozen, otherwise the smoothie will not be as creamy.
TIP: If you are using a high-powered blender, always put the liquids in the blender jar first. This allows the blender to work well and the blade does not spin so quickly. Maybe you are one of those people who have a blender with a pestle? Then you certainly don’t know this problem.
Delicious vegan smoothies
Sometimes I get really weird looks at the checkout because I buy such a large amount of bananas. If you believe various experts, then bananas should have the following properties:
- Rich in calcium, potassium, and amino acids
- Anti-viral and anti-bacterial
- Helps rebuild neurotransmitters
- Provides the body with easily digestible glucose
- Helps stabilize blood sugar
IMPORTANT TIP for the correct freezing of bananas. : The bananas should be as ripe as possible, preferably already with black dots. Many would not eat the fruit at this level of ripeness, but dispose of it. Exactly then the bananas are perfect, because they have the maximum sugar content. To freeze, peel, cut into chunks and place in a reusable box or freezer bag (I’ve used mine x number of times, the permanent freezing also prevents bacteria from forming). Remove and refreeze banana pieces as needed.

What else is there to say? In terms of preparation, you’ll need a good blender (I love my Blendtec), smoothie glasses and straws. Here I use bamboo straws, because we already have enough plastic in the world.
The peanut butter banana smoothie is:
- Pleasantly sweet
- Rich in healthy fats
