This strawberry banana peanut butter smoothie is such a delicious treat! It is super thick and creamy, similar to a milkshake, but completely dairy-free and vegan.
Scroll down to the recipe box for quantities.
Here is what you will need for this strawberry banana peanut butter smoothie:
Frozen strawberry slices
Peanut butter – I use 1 tablespoon, but you can definitely add more!
Oat milk – this is the creamiest plant-based milk. You could also use almond milk.
Maple syrup (optional) – for added sweetness.
Vanilla extract (optional) – for added flavor.
Using both frozen strawberry and frozen banana is what makes this smoothie super thick and creamy. I do not recommend using fresh for either fruit. Both should be frozen!
How to make
Start by freezing your banana. If you only have fresh strawberries, you will need to slice and freeze them as well.
Once all of your ingredients are ready, add them to a blender and blend until smooth.
Adjust the amount of milk as needed to achieve your desired texture.
Peel and chop your banana before freezing. This will make it much easier to blend in your smoothie. I like to cut my bananas into 3 or 4 pieces, then freeze them in a sealed container. I keep a couple of containers stocked with frozen banana pieces in my freezer so I always have them ready for smoothies!
If you want your smoothie super thick, start with a bit less milk, then add some more as needed to get the smoothie blended.
Adjustments and substitutions
- Add more peanut butter if you’d like a stronger peanut butter flavor. I think just one tablespoon is enough, but you may want 1½ or 2 tablespoons.
- Add more milk if needed to get this smoothie blended. This may be required if you don’t have a high-powered blender. If you accidentally add too much milk and your smoothie becomes too thin, blend in a bit more frozen strawberries or some ice.
- I love adding a tablespoon of maple syrup to this strawberry banana peanut butter smoothie, but if you find it sweet enough just from the fruit, you can omit the maple syrup.
- I like using oat milk for this smoothie, but almond milk would also work well.
More fruit smoothies
- 1 cup frozen strawberry slices
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter (or more if desired)
- 1 ¼ cups oat milk
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
I find one tablespoon of peanut butter enough for this smoothie, but add some more if you’d like a stronger peanut butter taste.
Add a bit more milk if needed to get this smoothie blended.
The maple syrup is not necessary, but it adds some more sweetness to this smoothie. Add it if you want a sweeter taste.
