Fresh bananas are a common ingredient in many smoothie recipes. They add sweetness and give smoothies a creamy texture. I decided not to use bananas in this recipe because I wanted the strawberry and peanut butter flavor to shine. If you’re a big banana fan, you should try my Healthy Banana Split Smoothie! You could also add bananas to make this a strawberry banana peanut butter smoothie.
Simple Ingredients Needed
I use unsweetened almond milk because I think the dates add enough sweetness to this smoothie. It contains 22% of the daily recommended value of vitamin E which is great for fighting inflammation.
Make sure you use frozen strawberries for the best results. Frozen fruits make thicker smoothies. They’re full of vitamin C, manganese, and potassium.
Dates give this strawberry peanut butter smoothie recipe the perfect amount of sweetness. They also have an excellent nutrition profile. Just one serving contains 7 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein. Make sure you either use pitted dates or take out the pit yourself.
I use natural peanut butter. Peanut butter contains the 3 major macronutrients: protein, fiber, and fat and is also rich in vitamins and minerals.
Just a little bit adds the best flavor.
