This peanut butter vegan smoothie recipe creates a thick, rich, creamy, and HEALTHY smoothie! Great for breakfast, snacks, or even dessert.
Tracy over at Eating Smart with Tracy posted this delicious vegan smoothie recipe on Facebook this week. I tried it on on the family yesterday and everyone sucked it down like it was candy and raved! I made a couple changes to the recipe, using the new Blue Diamond almond coconut milk blend (delicious) instead of regular almond milk and adding a half scoop of organic Whole Nectar protein.
The Whole Nectar protein is a GMO-free, soy-based vegan protein powder that I got through a Vitamix distributor. It’s great because it’s pretty much a tasteless, unsweetened protein that can be added to any shakes or smoothies without altering the flavor.
This peanut butter vegan smoothie tastes like dessert! Enjoy!
To make this healthy smoothie recipe, you’ll need:
1 1/2 frozen bananas
1 cup almond milk (I used the coconut almond blend)
2 T cocoa powder (I used one, 2 was a little much for me)
2 T healthy peanut butter (such as Earth Balance)
1/2 tsp agave nectar (I used 1 tsp for the kiddos)
1/2 scoop Whole Nectar protein
Great new product that I used in this peanut butter vegan smoothie recipe:
I love this new blend for my shakes and smoothies! Great calorie count, too, at only 45 calories per serving.
- 1 1/2 frozen bananas
- 1 cup almond milk I used the coconut almond blend
- 2 T cocoa powder I used one, 2 was a little much for me
- 2 T healthy peanut butter such as Earth Balance
- 1/2 tsp agave nectar I used 1 tsp for the kiddos
- 1/2 scoop Whole Nectar protein
- Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.
*Kitchen tip: To have frozen bananas on hand for shakes and smoothies, peel over-ripe bananas and slice in half. Wrap each half in plastic wrap and put into an airtight container or a freezer ziploc bag. This way you can pull out 1/2 a banana at a time for your recipes. Sometimes, I don’t need a whole banana in my shakes and this is a great, easy way to freeze and store.
