Peanut Butter Banana Oat Smoothie ~ #SundaySupper #ChooseDreams

Frozen bananas, protein-packed peanut butter, creamy Greek yogurt, and fiber-filled oats get blended together to create a thick and creamy peanut butter banana oat smoothie.

I’ve been quite the smoothie addict lately. With the abundance of fresh fruit available, it’s hard not to be.

I’m known for being over zealous at the farmer’s market. I tend to load up my market bag with every single fruit the vendors have to offer. A week later, the fruit is looking a little sad and I’m trying to figure out a way to use the fruit I so badly had to have before it goes to waste.

Smoothies are the perfect vessel for fresh or wilted fruit alike. I make a smoothie when I’m running late for work, craving a sweet snack, or to add a boost of protein before my morning trail ride through the woods.

This week, the #SundaySupper crew is partnering with AmFam to bring you healthy recipes to fuel you on the go.

This peanut butter banana smoothie has been my go-to smoothie for the last few weeks. Peanut butter and banana is the ultimate flavor combo, so it only made sense to swirl it together to create a frothy smoothie. It’s thick, filling, and tastes like dessert.

I used creamy peanut butter and Greek yogurt to give this smoothie a boost of protein. The added protein will keep you full and energized.

I always use frozen bananas in my smoothies. They create a thick, creamy smoothie without diluting flavor. One banana is packed with 422 mg of potassium.

I also added a tablespoon of old-fashioned oats and a teaspoon of flaxseed meal. Both ingredients add a healthy dose of fiber, while the flaxseed meal adds essential omega-3 fatty acids.

What you’re getting is a healthy, protein and fiber packed smoothie that will fuel your workouts or act as a quick meal when you’re too busy to cook.

Since this smoothie tastes like a shake, you won’t even know it’s healthy for you.

    I can’t help myself by buying all the fruit at the store and market in the summer. It’s like my duty in life :) Love the idea of this smoothie! Pb and banana is a wonderful combo.

      I really have to stop buying all the fruit. Thank goodness for smoothies.

    So would it be wrong to want to add a touch of chocolate to this? I kid but perhaps this could get me into smoothies. It’s all about the peanut butter.

      You can’t go wrong with chocolate, so add away.

    You and me both! I tend to go a little crazy with the fruit selection and overestimate my ability to eat them all (it really is shocking considering how much I love it!) Smoothies are the best way to use them up for sure. Love that you got the oats in here! I can’t even tell – THAT is a sign of a good oatmeal smoothie!

    I hear you! I totally get excited about fresh produce, and I tend to overbuy. Love that you can use the “leftovers” for a smoothie like this – no need to let it go to waste, and it turns into something awesome!

      Thanks, Katie. I hate wasting food, so I always try to use it in something. The other day I used nearly dead peaches for peach syrup.

    I think we have a similar color esthetic when it comes to photography, because I also have a turquoise background that I ALWAYS reach for when my recipe involves bananas. I’ve done two banana recipes on it in the last few weeks. Something about that turquoise and yellow.

    Love this filling and healthy recipe, Jennie!

    Love the banana peanut butter combo! I need to try this with sunflower butter (due to my daughter’s allergy) but I can’t wait to give it a try!!

      Oooo, sunflower butter. I need to get my hands on some of that. Let me know how you like it.
