Peanut Butter Banana Green Smoothie Bowl

Bowls of our Peanut Butter Banana Super Green Smoothie topped with granola

From time to time, I love sharing a recipe I’ve been making organically in my kitchen and enjoying on a regular basis. This smoothie is one of those recipes.

It all started with an obsession for banana and peanut butter, which goes way back to my favorite green smoothie.

Since then, my taste has become slightly more sophisticated and I’ve been enjoying more adaptogen and green powders in my smoothies for an extra boost of nutrition.

We hope you love this smoothie bowl. It’s perfect for all you peanut butter banana lovers out there who also love a healthy dose of greens.

Banana, cauliflower, coconut milk, blueberries, spirulina, cinnamon, spinach, hemp seeds, and peanut butter for making vegan smoothie bowls

The recipe happens in your blender in about 5 minutes.

Banana is blended with cauliflower and blueberries for a creamy, perfectly sweet base. Then add in a big handful of greens, a healthy dose of peanut (or your favorite nut/seed) butter for saltiness and protein, and dairy-free milk.

For a little extra nutrition, we added hemp seeds for healthy fats and protein, spirulina for detoxification, maca to help balance hormones, and ashwagandha to help the body adapt to stress.

Not to worry, these add-ins don’t really affect the flavor because the banana and peanut butter combo still shine through (phew).

FOR SERVING

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients (bananas, blueberries, spinach, cauliflower, dairy-free milk, maca, ashwagandha, spirulina, hemp seeds, and peanut butter) to a high-speed blender.
  2. Blend on low/medium and use the blender wand to push ingredients around (if you don’t have a blender wand, just blend on low until combined.)

  3. Add a little bit more coconut milk in small increments until creamy and smooth. For a thicker smoothie bowl, add less milk. For a thinner smoothie bowl, add more milk.

  4. Taste flavor and adjust if desired, adding more peanut butter for saltiness or banana for sweetness. Spirulina or more spinach will add a deeper green hue.

  5. Divide between serving bowls and garnish with toppings of choice. We went with oil-free granola, rawnola, and more frozen blueberries.

  6. Best when fresh. Store leftovers in the refrigerator up to 3 days. Freeze into ice cubes for longer-term storage (~1 month) and add to future smoothies.
