PB & Banana with Honey Smoothie

pbbhoneysmoothieWarm toast fresh out of the toaster slathered with some peanut butter. The peanut butter just starts to melt due to the warmth. Add a few slices of banana then drizzle with some honey. Breakfast is served. It can also be more time-consuming than some people have in the mornings. I know I also like peanut butter and banana with honey sandwiches, but they don’t tend to travel well.

That was the inspiration behind this new smoothie recipe. I used chocolate protein powder and it paired really well with the peanut butter (like for sure!) and the banana only enhances the flavor of the honey. 


It’s that childhood (or adult!) favorite all packed and portable. With a bit more protein punch.

I have so many smoothies that I love but this one has been my go-to the last few days. I get the health benefits of the protein powder, raw honey, and banana and the lower calorie peanut butter with PB2.

This one keeps me full for quite a long time, too. I’ve tested it at breakfast and on another day for lunch. The frozen banana doesn’t make it too Wendy’s Frosty like so it can be enjoyed in cooler weather.

You know what wasn’t fun about it though? Trying to photograph it before the honey sunk to the bottom of my glass. Grrrrrrrr. I was trying to make it all fancy and pretty for you guys!

    What an interesting sounding combination. I happen to be allergic to bananas so I rarely if ever make a smoothy since they all seen to include them. Drizzle honey on peanut butter–I think I could live with that!

    1. I love them. They make breakfast simple and I get a healthy dose of protein and vegetables. I don’t use a lot of pudding mixes. I think I am going to do the 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge again in January.

  2. I made a smoothie this morning and was thinking about adding honey to make it a little sweeter. I have never used that in a smoothie though so wasn’t sure. It looks like it’s a good idea, seeing your recipe!

    I’ve never been much of a honey person, but this looks delish. I love making smoothies in the morning, they’re so easy to make and I can take it on the go with me to work.

  4. Despite the fact that the honey is on Santa’s naughty list, the picture looks delicious, and the Peanut Butter Banana and Honey Smoothy sounds YUMMY! What a great idea. Thanks for sharing at the #HomeMatters Linky Party. Pinned and shared. 🙂
