9 Peanut Butter Smoothie Recipes

No other food bridges the gap between meal and snack in quite the same way as peanut butter. If you are looking for a quick and easy lunch idea, make yourself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. In the mood for a few handfuls of something sweet? You can’t beat miniature peanut butter cups. No time for breakfast in the morning? Peanut butter on a piece of whole-grain toast will fill you up and give you a nice boost of protein to boot. As such, it’s really no surprise that peanut butter has become a staple ingredient among smoothie-enthusiasts. As far as we're concerned, there’s nothing wrong with that.

In fact, we’d like to share nine of our favorite peanut butter smoothie recipes from around the web. So grab that blender and prepare to have your mind blown by these luscious legume-based libations (unless you have a peanut allergy, in which case you probably should have turned back after reading the title).

9 Peanut Butter Smoothies

1. Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie

peanut butter smoothies

Whether you’re trying to lose weight, gain muscle, or even just, you know, stay alive, your body needs protein. Unfortunately, many of us just don’t seem to get enough of that good stuff in our diets. You can solve this problem by trying your hand at creating the Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein shake.

A common excuse for not getting enough protein is the high cost of protein-rich foods and the time it takes to prepare them. Another doozy is that foods high in protein just don't taste good. Well, this one has chocolate in it so we aren't accepting that reason. 

Special thanks to Sally at Sallysbakingaddiction.com for developing this recipe.


1 large banana (sliced, frozen)
3 tbsp cocoa powder (unsweetened)
6 oz Greek Yogurt (flavored or unflavored)
¾ cup skim milk (or your favorite kind of milk or milk substitute)
1 tbsp honey, maple syrup, or agave
1 tbsp peanut butter
Chocolate syrup (optional)


  1. Place the banana, the cocoa powder, the yogurt, and the milk into a blender. Blend.
  2. Add the honey and the peanut butter. Blend again.
  3. You may have to scrape the sides a few times in order to get everything properly mixed. Blend until smooth.
  4. Serve in a tall glass, and drizzle a small amount of chocolate syrup over the top (optional but delicious)

2. Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie

Look, we understand. You know that you should always start your day with a nutritious breakfast, but once you’ve hit that snooze button for the fifth time and hauled yourself out of the warmth of your bed, you don’t always have time to prepare a meal on your way out the door.

The Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie—created by Liz at Thelemonbowl.com—may be the perfect solution. Prepare it fast while on the go (it only takes five minutes), or make it the night before and keep it ready in the refrigerator. It will give you the energy you need to make it through the day, and you can even bring it with you to the office.


2 bananas
1 cup skim milk
1 cup vanilla yogurt (low fat)
1 cup oats
¼ cup peanut butter (natural)
1 tsp cinnamon
2-3 large scoops ice (more to taste)


  1. Place bananas, skim milk, and yogurt in a blender. Blend.
  2. Add oats, peanut butter, cinnamon, and ice. Blend until smooth.

3. Blueberry Peanut Smoothie

peanut butter smoothies


It's a common misconception that bananas are the only fruit that should be in a peanut butter protein smoothie, but blueberries are one that shouldn't be forgotten. 

The blueberry is one of nature’s wonder foods. It’s incredibly rich in antioxidants, helps prevent bladder-infections, fights age-related memory loss, and may even strengthen the body against cancer! Combined with the fact that blueberries are most beneficial when eaten raw, these factors make blueberries the perfect smoothie ingredients. Mix them up with a little peanut butter—thanks to this recipe by Royal Oak Peanuts via Cookingchanneltv.com—and you’ve got a smoothie that not only tastes great, but one that may also improve your overall health.


2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
½ cup milk (low-fat)
3 tbsp peanut butter
2 cups vanilla frozen yogurt (fat-free)
½ cup ice


  1. Combine blueberries, milk, and peanut butter in a blender and blend for approximately 30 seconds.
  2. Add ice and frozen yogurt, and blend until smooth.

4. Peanut Butter and Jelly Green Smoothie

 peanut butter smoothies

According to a 2002 survey, the average American will have eaten 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before graduating from high school. Break the trend—stop eating peanut butter and jelly; start drinking it. That’s right, Brianne at Cupcakesandkalechips.com has created a delicious smoothie that combines the flavors of the sandwich that you love, with the ease and health benefits of a green smoothie (even though the color of the resultant mixture is certainly not green).

Don't let the funky name intimidate you. This ultra-healthy peanut butter smoothie is packed with nutrients and tastes great. 


5–6 oz greek yogurt (vanilla or berry flavored)
1 cup fresh or frozen berries of choice OR ½ cup frozen berries and half of a banana (cut into chunks)
1 Tbsp peanut butter or 2 Tbsp powdered peanut butter OR peanut flour
½ – ¾  cup milk (of your choice)
Handful of leafy greens (baby spinach, kale, etc.)
Small handful of ice cubes


  1. Combine the milk and fruit together in a blender. Mix.
  2. Add the peanut butter, greens, and ice cubes. Blend until smooth.

5. Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie

Peanut butter cups are one of the most popular treats in the United States. There’s a good chance that you feel a craving for some of those aluminum-wrapped rewards from time to time. But if you’d rather not have to ransack your kids’ trick-or-treat bags or sneak one into your grocery cart in the check-out line to get your fix, you can always give this recipe a try.

The Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie comes to us from Health.com, and has all of the taste of traditional peanut butter cups, while somehow still keeping a low count on the calories. Enjoy the magical flavor combination while still getting the benefits of a peanut butter protein shake. 


1 cup ripe banana (chopped, frozen)
1 cup chocolate milk (1% low-fat)
½ cup vanilla frozen yogurt (low-fat)
2 tbsp natural-style peanut butter
1 (8 oz) carton vanilla yogurt (low-fat)


  1. Let frozen banana stand for five minutes to partially thaw.
  2. Combine banana with remaining ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth.
  3. Serve immediately.

6. Peanut Butter Strawberry Smoothie

We tend to keep a list in our heads of what kinds of foods go well with other kinds of foods. Peanut butter, for example, works really well with bananas. But what about some of the foods we don’t normally associate? This smoothie combines peanut butter with two fruits that most people generally neglect to pair with it: strawberries and pineapple. But even though this match up may not be common, we can assure you that the result is delicious. Thanks to Peanutbutterlovers.com for the unique peanut butter fruit recipe!


1 ½ cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1 cup Greek yogurt (plain, nonfat)
1 cup milk (of your choice)
¼ cup pineapple juice
⅓ cup creamy peanut butter
1 tbsp honey


  1. Combine strawberries, yogurt, milk, pineapple juice, peanut butter, and honey together in a blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Add honey to taste. Re-blend.
  3. Serve immediately.

7. Peach and Peanut Butter Smoothie

This recipe, courtesy of Henry Biagi via Cooks.com will have you changing your entire perspective on peanut butter and peaches, not to mention peanut butter fruit smoothies in general. 


4 ripe bananas (small, frozen, chopped)

  • Nicer recipes. Would have been nice to have far, sat. fat, carbs, protein amounts and calories for each smoothie because we who work out like to know these things. We also look for different healthy goods/drinks do we don’t yite of same things over and over.

    Btian Young on

  • I make smoothies often. Banana based ones are my favorite but veggie ones are great too. Use milk, cucumber, spinach, peanut butter and a bit of stevia. Voila! Spinach is a great way to get your greens and you really cannot taste it in the smoothies. Another drink is non alcoholic egg nog. Use lite vanilla ice cream and vanilla flavoring and a bit of nutmeg and you have a low calorie, cold drink any time of the year. Of corse you can add peanut butter or Nutella or whatever you like. Add a rum flavoring, maple, whiskey whatever. Enjoy.

    Lois king on

  • Would like a vegan version of the smoothie, with a substitute for the yogurt.

    Frances Morey on

  • I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR THIS AWESOME LIST OF SMOOTHIES! Just made the PBB Oatmeal smoothie (with almond milk and Kite Hill almond yogurt) as I recover from some tummy issues, and it is perfectly lovely. Can’t wait to play around with more of these!

  • We freeze the bananas as they’re starting to get overripe and they make the smoothies so much tastier and rich.

    Deborah on

  • Peanut butter very nutritious and great easy protein esp.for kids who won’t eat other protein. Difficult to extract from.teeth however…just ask “Mr Ed, the Talking Horse”!! That’s how they made him.“talk”..by trying to pick the stuff off his teeth!!

    Chris LANDALE on

  • Is coconut meat a good alternative to yogurt?

    Dredbeauty on

  • Tried it today, loving it just up my street for that healthy snack. Cannot eat bananas so used avocado instead. Very rich, creamy and filling. Delicious ?

    Beverley on

  • Omg I used strawberries, 2 bananas, handful of baby spinach, coconut water and 2little spoons of smooth peanut butter, yummy to the max

    melanie on

  • Yes, it does depend on which one is chosen. These recipes are not Blendtec’s so we don’t have the information on serving sizes, however, you could click on the link for each one to see if the source has more info on it!

    Jessica Andreasen on

  • I make the last one and just freeze the banana and my blender so when I add Almond milk it is so cold it freezes. I also add cinnamon and Chia seeds. And top with shaved coconut. HEAVEN!

    Arriannah on

  • How many servings? Does it depend on which one chosen?

    Ryan on

  • These recipes will range in number of servings. You will need to visit the recipe on each site for serving sizes and nutritional information.

    Kelli Farley on

  • Surely these recipes are more than one serving. Watching calories and carbs!

    Ellen on

  • How about pears and pineapple with a tbsp peanut butter smoothie what a delightful full feeling

    shannon on

  • I add unsweetened cocoa powder to all smoothies, plus almond milk. yum

    Judith on

  • I love PB2 for smoothies and also in oatmeal. It adds the perfect peanut butter flavor without all the fat and calories. Peanut butter has healthy fats, but sometimes in and application such as a smoothie or oatmeal, you don’t need that creamy texture and therefore don’t mind missing out on those fat calories. How have you been liking it?

    MichelleChefNYC on

  • I’ve been loving it!

    Rollinda on

  • I bought PB2 powder today and am anxious to make some smoothies and more.

    Rollinda on

  • On the last one add a little bit of coco powder and sugar and its amaazing

    Daniel on

  • Add chocolate powder to the last one and it is really good!

    Zach on

  • Try #8 with a dash of cinnamon. I also use coconut water instead of regular water.

    Matt on

  • Can’t wait to try these! I would never have thought to blend peanut butter with strawberries or peaches, but it makes perfect sense when I think about how much I love a PBJ sandwich with strawberry or peach jam…

    Elly on

  • When I make my smoothie I use Coconut Milk with nutmeg or a pinch of all Spice AND half an avocado. Very Creamy.
