I wouldn’t recommend this Healthy Peanut Butter Smoothie recipe to anyone who is on a strict diet. Low calorie it isn’t! But the recipe is still healthy and is a good choice as a lunch replacement or a hearty snack.

You can also turn this Peanut Butter smoothie treat into a real nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.

In your favorite blender mix:

  • 3 Tbsp. Creamy Peanut butter
  • 1 cup uncooked oatmeal
  • cup milk (soy, 2%, whole milk, its your choice)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Ice to taste (about a cup or less)
  • Optional: 2 tbsp. chocolate syrup

The combination of banana and peanut butter is one of the best. An, if your kids (or you!) enjoy chocolate milk every now and then, this banana chocolate peanut butter smoothie makes a special after-school smoothie treat.

Its also easy to turn this tasty banana chocolate peanut butter smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a noticeable taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.

In your favorite blender mix:

– 1 large or 2 small ripe bananas (or frozen bananas TIP if using frozen, peel and slice BEFORE FREEZING!)
– 2 cups very cold chocolate milk
– 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

Start with only 1 cup of milk and blend, then add more till it reaches the consistency you like, sprinkle with chocolate shavings or banana slices if you like, and serve. (Serves 2)

Here’s a couple of tips:
– Try using frozen bananas in place of fresh; they provide a good cold base. Just be sure to peel and slice them BEFORE freezing!
– The amount of milk added often depends on the size and texture of the banana.
