I used to LIVE for big breakfasts. In fact, some nights I go to bed dreaming about what I’m going to wake up to the next morning.

Maybe a plate full of pancakes with a side of bacon on a weekday with a piping hot coffee? Hell yes, then I’m your girl. Or maybe a big bowl of creamy thick oats topped with banana slices & drizzled with peanut butter? Forever a classic.

The whole big breakfast thing kinda flew out the window since having a baby. These days Tony is in charge of breakfast (hello english muffins every morning) but when he’s not around to make me something, I resort to my go-to quick, easy and nutritious breakfast love: SMOOTHIES.

Lately, this gorgeous peanut butter blueberry banana smoothie has been my go-to in the mornings. You only need 4 ingredients, plus it’s easy, quick and you can easily add in a variety of options to make it your own.

Ingredients in this peanut butter blueberry banana smoothie

Can you believe this easy blueberry banana smoothie is made with just four simple ingredients? It’s smooth and ridiculously easy to throw together when you want a quick breakfast or healthy afternoon snack. All you’ll need is:

  • Banana: feel free to use a fresh or frozen one. It will help naturally sweetened this delicious smoothie.
  • Blueberries: I recommend using frozen blueberries so that you don’t have to add additional ice cubes. Using frozen blueberries will also help thicken the smoothie.
  • Peanut butter: I love adding PB to my smoothies (both blended + a drizzle on top) but you can use any nut butter than you’d like. Powdered peanut butter is also a great option!
  • Non-dairy milk: this will keep the smoothie dairy free and vegan while giving it the perfect consistency. Start with 1 cup and add more to thin out the smoothie, if necessary. I prefer almond or cashew milk.
  • Toppings: make a yummy smoothie bowl or just top your glass with your fav granola (or try my best-ever homemade recipe!), extra bananas & blueberries.

Optional peanut butter blueberry banana smoothie additions

Feel free to truly make this smoothie your own! Here are a few nutritional suggestions for this blueberry banana smoothie:

  • Flaxseed meal: this is one of my favorite ingredients to add to smoothies for a little boost of fiber and minerals. It’s especially great for nursing mamas as flaxseed can help increase milk supply.
  • Chia seeds: add in a tablespoon of chia seeds to your smoothie for a boost of healthy fats and fiber.
  • Hemp seeds: feel free to throw in those hemp seeds lurking in your cupboard for a boost of healthy fats, omegas and minerals.
  • Oats: add about 1/3 cup oats to your smoothie for an additional thickness & heartiness. Do not use steel cut oats as they will not blend well.
  • Organic spinach: if you’re looking to get more greens in your smoothie, try adding a few cups of spinach. It may turn the smoothie a slightly brown color, but you won’t be able to taste the spinach at all.
  • Greek yogurt: add a boost of protein with a scoop of Greek yogurt (or your favorite, dairy free yogurt). You may have to reduce the almond milk to 3/4 cup in this smoothie when adding yogurt.
  • Protein powder or collagen peptides: another great way to add some protein. I recommend a plain or vanilla flavored protein powder in this recipe. 

Tips for making this blueberry banana smoothie

Here are a few of my favorite tips for making this blueberry banana smoothie creamy and delicious:

  1. Using frozen fruit is best as it helps keeps the smoothie cold and thick. Sometimes ice doesn’t blend as well, so it’s best to skip unless absolutely necessary. If you only have fresh fruit, try adding 1 cup frozen cauliflower as it blends much easier than ice.
  2. Don’t be afraid to add more liquid if your smoothie is too thick or won’t fully blend. High powered blenders tend to blend frozen fruit much better, so if you have a regular or personal size blender, you may need to add more milk.
  3. Start the blender on low speed, then gradually increase the speed to high to help blend all ingredients. End with the blender on low speed.

I hope you love this healthy peanut butter blueberry banana smoothie! If you make this recipe I’d love it if you left a comment & a rating to let me know how you liked it. Really appreciate it, xo!

WHY WE LOVE THIS BLUEBERRY PEANUT BUTTER SMOOTHIE

  • The berries give this smoothie such a pretty colour.
  • This smoothie is packed with delicious blueberries.
  • The recipe uses frozen fruit that you probably have on hand in your freezer (you don’t have to wait for what’s in season).
  • Like most smoothie recipes, it comes together in minutes.
  • It’s made with just 4 simple ingredients.
  • It makes for a delicious breakfast or snack.
  • It’s dairy free (but can be made with dairy, if you like).
  • It’s refined sugar free and naturally sweetened with blueberry goodness.
  • It probably goes without saying, but this blueberry peanut butter smoothie tastes delicious!

CAN I USE DAIRY INSTEAD OF ALMOND MILK?

Absolutely! Use your favourite dairy milk if you like. Other delicious options are soy milk or oat milk. If you want to add another element of flavour, try vanilla flavoured oat or almond milk.

DO I HAVE TO USE BANANA?

Nope! I love bananas in smoothies because they add lushness and creaminess. You can’t really taste it here, but you can omit if you like. Feel free to sub in some more blueberries.

TIPS AND VARIATIONS

  • There’s no added sugar here, but you can add some maple syrup or honey, if you like.
  • This smoothie is thick! Thin things out with more milk if you like a looser consistency.
  • Amp things up with protein powder. A peanut butter flavoured protein powder would be lovely in this smoothie.
  • I drizzled these fruity smoothies with some melted peanut butter and topped with crushed peanuts. This is totally optional! It does create quite the lovely colour contrast, though, and add an extra layer of peanut butter flavour.
  • More delicious smoothie topping ideas for this blueberry peanut butter smoothie are blueberries, chia seeds, flax seeds or oats.
