Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Bananas: Before you make this smoothie, you need to peel and freeze the bananas. If you don’t peel the bananas before freezing them, it will be frustrating trying to remove the peels after frozen! When freezing the peeled bananas, place them in a freezer-safe bag. Try to get out as much of the air as possible and then seal the bag. Label with the date and place into your freezer for up to 3 months. You do not need to chop the bananas unless you are worried about your blender handling a whole frozen banana.
  • Milk: I prefer whole milk to give the smoothie a richer and creamier texture. You could use milk lower in fat like 2% or 1%, but the smoothie may not be as creamy (still delicious, though).
  • Peanut Butter: We can’t leave out the peanut butter in a peanut butter banana smoothie! But, you could try the smoothie with other nut butter like almond or cashew butter.
  • Honey: Honey adds sweetness to the smoothie. And, since it is a natural sweetener, it is a healthier alternative to refined sugar. Maple syrup or agave nectar could also be used as sweeteners.

Can I Make this Smoothie Without Frozen Bananas?

If you don’t have frozen bananas, you can add ice to the smoothie to make it cold. However, that will change the flavor and consistency, so you may need to add additional bananas.

Can I Make this Ahead of Time?

Sure! Once this smoothie has been blended, it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

How to Freeze Smoothies

Smoothies are easy to freeze. You can store the smoothie mixture in a freezer-safe container for up to 2 months. Or, use an ice cube tray to store the smoothie. When ready to enjoy, add a couple of frozen cubes to a jar or glass with a lid. Place them in the refrigerator to thaw and shake it up when ready to enjoy. You can also add the frozen cubes to your blender for a quick way to make a smoothie on those mornings you may feel rushed.

  1. I’ve done this before and its tasty. I sometimes add a 3/4 cup of ground oats and flaxseeds and 1/4 teaspoon almond extract and use almond or brown rice milk. That’s usually how I do mine for those days I need more fiber.
