Tips and Variations
- You can use any kind of milk you prefer. We used coconut milk for our smoothie but feel free to use whole milk, or a non dairy substitute.
- If you aren’t a fan of the peanut butter flavor, you can substitute almond butter.
- Vanilla protein powder will give you the vanilla flavor while also adding in extra protein!
- Be sure the frozen bananas are in small enough pieces to ensure everything blends easily and you get a smooth base.
- If you’re using fresh instead of frozen bananas, you will need to add in ice.
Storage: We don’t recommend storing this smoothie. It should be enjoyed as soon as it’s made to avoid melting. This recipe makes individual servings so there should not be any leftovers to store.
