You aren’t believe how easy it is to make this simple Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie. It is naturally sweet and creamy, even without any dairy. Banana is a source of soluble fiber, which means that they add thickness to smoothies. If you don’t like bananas, you can also use frozen mango or pear to add creaminess without dairy.

Peanut butter is also a nutritious and flavorful ingredient. Peanuts are actually a legume and are rich in plant-based protein.

As written, this recipe is:

  • dairy-free,
  • gluten-free,
  • vegan, vegetarian, and paleo-friendly if you use almond butter instead of peanut butter.
