There’s nothing better than post workout fuel that tastes like a peanut butter banana milkshake that’s actually healthy and packed with protein (23g to be exact!). This recipe is one of my all time favorite smoothie recipes because it’s easy to make and delicious!

Peanut Butter is a great source of healthy fats and to make it even better, it’s packed with protein! If you are feeling fancy, you can grind your own peanut butter with no added sugar or preservatives. I prefer creamy peanut butter, but feel free to use chunky. In this smoothie, I used a frozen banana for the base in addition to a few ice cubes for a creamy and sweet consistency with a punch of carbs. I used a scoop of my favorite vanilla whey protein powder, but if you need to keep things dairy free, feel free to use a plant or soy-based powder. Protein powder is a great way to sneak in some extra protein, especially after a tough workout. Last but not least, I used vanilla extract and a pinch of salt to bring out the sweet and salty flavors of this delicious peanut butter banana protein smoothie!
