Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

This smoothie could very well be named the ‘Elvis Smoothie’ because of Elvis’ love of peanut butter and banana sandwiches. He sometimes even added crisp bacon to his favorite sandwich, but I left that out of this smoothie recipe. If you happen to try it with bacon, let me know how it turns out! I will let you know how to store and freeze it as well.

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 you are 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.

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.

How to Rim a Glass with Peanut Butter

Just in case you are wondering how I got the fun peanut butter ring around the glass, which is totally optional by the way, I just melted some peanut butter and then dipped the glass in it. Then flip the glass over and it will spill down the edges. It’s messy and completely unnecessary, but super fun. 🙂

  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.
