You've heard of Strawberry-Banana as a common flavor combination, but you may be wondering..."What's with the peanut butter?"
Well, I have a confession to make.
This smoothie was inspired by one of my favorite food combinations growing up...strawberry ice cream and peanut butter topping.
A strange combination you say?
Well, I'm going to prove that strawberry ice cream and peanut butter topping is not a strange food combination.
Peanut butter and jelly.
What does good old PB&J have to do with this, you ask?
Well, the facts show that peanut butter and jelly is a perfectly acceptable, well-loved food pairing.
But, I wonder...what if that jelly happens to be of the strawberry variety?
Aha! See, it IS totally normal!
Case dismissed. Court adjourned.
Oh, wait...you want to try it?
Alright, you twisted my arm.
I'll tell you how I made this amazing pink concoction (almost affectionately named The Nutty Fribble in honor of my childhood favorite ice cream establishment) with only 4 ingredients, which are loaded with vitamins and minerals that will make your body happy. 🙂
Ingredients you'll need to make this strawberry-banana smoothie
- Frozen Strawberries - provide most of the flavor and are loaded with nutrients
- Frozen Banana - provides natural sweetness yet a neutral flavor that doesn't overpower the strawberries
- Unsweetened Coconut Milk (beverage, not canned) - helps the fruit blend into creamy goodness
- Unsweetened, Creamy Peanut Butter - adds protein, healthy fats and that PB deliciousness
How to make this strawberry-banana smoothie with peanut butter
Add frozen strawberries, frozen banana, coconut milk and a generous amount of glorious peanut butter to a high-powered blender.
Blend until smooth and the ingredients are well-incorporated.
Can I make this strawberry smoothie with less fat/calories?
Yes! Substitute an equal amount of unsweetened peanut butter powder for the peanut butter.
Peanut butter powder has about 1.5 grams of fat and 50 calories per two tablespoons while peanut butter typically has about 16 grams of fat and between 180 and 200 calories for the same size serving.
In addition, using a lower fat plant-based milk, such as unsweetened almond milk, will also lower the overall fat and saturated fat in the smoothie.
Please note though that it won't be as creamy.
