Recipe: Frozen Banana, Peanut Butter & Coffee Smoothie | Family Economics

By Tori Tait


Smoothies are a great way to enjoy something delicious without all the guilt of drinking a milkshake or indulging in a rich desert. This smoothie is made with frozen bananas which gives it a very creamy body that is super satisfying (you almost forget that it is not a dessert). This recipe is great for breakfast as it has peanut butter for protein and a bit of espresso for a pick-me-up. It is also great after a workout, during an afternoon slump, or as a tasty dessert.  


Frozen Banana, Peanut Butter & Coffee Smoothie

Prep time: 10 minutes
Yields: 1 large shake or 2 small shakes


2 bananas, frozen, peeled and cut into bite-sized chunks
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup almond or skim milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon instant espresso


Ahead of time: peel, cut and freeze the bananas in Ziploc® brand Freezer Bags with the Smart Zip® Seal for at least 4 hours (or overnight is best).

Blend frozen bananas, peanut butter, almond milk, vanilla and instant espresso.
