Try this thick and creamy peanut butter smoothie as a nutritious breakfast or an indulgent after-dinner treat.

How to Make It

Place all ingredients in a blender; process until smooth.

Chef's Notes

Protein and monounsaturated fat from the peanut butter, potassium from the banana, and protein and calcium from the yogurt will get your day off to a great start. Peel and slice bananas to freeze individually in zip-top bags for smoothies and shakes.

This smoothie is yummy.  There is a good blend of flavors.  I make one every week for my 86 year old mother.  She loves it.

This is my favorite smoothie recipe! This could easily be a dessert instead of breakfast. It is amazing and keeps me full longer than most other breakfast. My husband and sons love it too!

I'm allergic to raw banana and, not having the time to pop one in the oven, substituted papaya and switched the yogurt to low fat kefir. Turned out delicious, can't wait to try it with banana.

My husband I and both loved this smoothie and had it for bfast two days in a row. I'm buying extra banana this week just to freeze some to have on hand to make the smoothie again. I forgot the chocolate syrup the first time and thought it tasted fine; the 2nd time I added the syrup and couldn't really tell the difference. I'll probably leave the chocolate syrup out in the future to save the calories, and I may try plain nonfat yogurt instead of flavored vanilla. We drank the smoothie with some breakfast bread from the bakery. Yum!

OK I tried it the way it was written and it was rather balnd so I added 2 tsp of Coco Powder and 1 tsp of Cinnamon and it really improved the flavor
