Ingredients

  • 2 small frozen bananas
  • 3 tablespoon peanut butter
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk (or any other milk)

Instructions

  • Smoothies are super easy to make, and this one is no exception. Add all the ingredients to a blender, and blend until smooth. The smoothie will have a very thick consistency.
  • When it is blended, add it to a bowl and serve with any toppings you like.

Notes

Is this smoothie bowl suitable for my diet? – Peanut butter banana smoothie bowls are suitable for most diets, like weight watchers and slimming world. If you use dairy free milk, such as almond milk, they are also vegan and whole30 friendly.
Can I make this in a food processor? – Yes! Most food processors can also make thick smoothies, and are well suited to make smoothie bowls.

Leftovers

The leftover smoothie bowl will melt quickly and have a thinner, liquid consistency within 20 minutes. It can be stored in the fridge as a thin smoothie to drink for up to a day.
Smoothie bowls are not really suited for meal prep, and should be served immediately after making them.

Choosing bananas

Although any smoothie can be made with fresh bananas, I highly recommend using frozen bananas for smoothie bowls.
The frozen bananas will make a creamy, thick smoothie, and since it’s cold it really gives it an ice cream like texture. It’s like eating dessert for breakfast, only it’s healthy!
Using fresh bananas will give the smoothie bowl a much thinner consistency, better suited for drinking than eating with a spoon.

Top tips

Here’s my best advice on how to make a perfect peanut butter smoothie bowl:
  • If you wish, you can also add some chia seeds or a spoon of peanut butter protein powder to the blender to increase the protein content of the dish. Perfect if you’re working out in the morning!
  • This recipe makes 1 large bowl, or 2 smaller servings. You can easily double or triple the recipe to make more.
  • When making thick smoothies, some blenders might struggle to blend the frozen bananas properly. Keep pushing the bananas down into the blender and stir it occasionally with a spoon to help blend the smoothie.
  • Feel like changing up the flavor? Add a spoon of gingerbread spice or cocoa powder. They both taste great with the peanut butter and bananas.
