PB Banana Flax Smoothie

Here is a smoothie I have been enjoying quite a lot lately.  It makes for a great post workout smoothie! Not only is this smoothie nutritious and filling, but it is super tasty!

This recipe was adapted from here:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond milk*
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt (I used Amande)*
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds (If you don’t have these you can omit and just make a PB Banana Smoothie)
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 – 1 banana, frozen
  • Optional: 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Vanilla Plant Fusion)

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

*If you want a thicker smoothie use 1/2 cup almond milk and 1/2 cup yogurt.

I love the natural sweetness from the banana, the healthy fats from the peanut butter, and the omega-3’s from the flaxseeds.  I added the protein powder for additional protein (especially since I usually drink this post workout).  You can also add maca powder (to increase energy) and spinach (to sneak in some veggies and additional health benefits.)

This recipe (with protein powder and 1/2 banana) yields approximately 338 calories and 18g protein.
