Simply Healthy: Peanut Butter-Banana Protein Shake

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Makes 2-8 oz. servings

  • 2 bananas, mashed or cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (I prefer the chunky version)
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbs. chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups cold almond milk


Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. For colder, chunky smoothie, freeze your bananas prior to making your smoothie.
