Peanut Butter And Banana Smoothie Recipe

This clean eating peanut butter and banana smoothie recipe will have you dancing down the driveway on your way to work!

I refer to this shake rather lovingly as, “The Elvis Shake”. While it may not convince you to start doing pelvic thrusts down your driveway on your way to the car in the morning, it will certainly put a spring in your step!

A small, clear, bless jar filled with this green, Clean Eating Peanut Butter And Banana Smoothie sits on a white background amidst sliced bananas and peanuts.

And let’s face it, there are a lot of peanut butter lovers out there. So I know many of you will enjoy this. Don’t let the green color throw you off either. You can’t taste the spinach. I promise! Just pure, peanut buttery deliciousness. Promise!

So go ahead. Try a few pelvic thrusts in the kitchen while you make this. You’ll be singing Jailhouse Rock in no time and slicking back your hair like it’s made of silk. Go ahead… I dare ya…. (just don’t throw your back out please…)

NOTE: For those doing the No Sugar Challenge, this entire recipe equals 1 serving of the 3 allowed fruit servings per day. Therefore, 1 serving equals 1/2 of one fruit serving.

  1. wow this was super yummy! and a great way to hide some greens in my toddlers diet:) i used full cream milk for her. very good! love all your recipes!

  2. I found the link to your smoothies from Pinterest. I am slowly working my way through them. There are so many delicious ones to chose from! This banana/peanut butter one is delicious. I have made it a few times. The perfect combination and ratio of flavors. Thanks for sharing all these recipes!

  3. I’ve made a few of your recipes and decided I wanted a smoothie for lunch today. I found this one, yummy! It was delish! Thanks!!!

  4. I hope this is not a silly question.. Do I use canned spinach? If not, how many spinach leaves consist in 1 cup of spinach?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jon – I’ve never used canned spinach. Frozen would work, but I’m partial to the fresh stuff. I just get out a 1 cup measuring cup and stuff it full of as many leaves as I can. Hope that helps.

  5. This looks so good! I have two question though, can I use almond butter instead of peanut butter? and I saw mention of tofu in the comments but not in the ingredient list…did I miss something?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Laura – I updated the recipes at one point. I believe I removed the tofu from this one. Yes, you can use almond butter. Enjoy!

  6. I’m getting mixed messages about the sugar content in the bananas. I’m being asked why bananas in a no sugar challenge, when they are so high in sugar themselves?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Shannon – The challenge is about avoiding ADDED sugars. Natural sugars in fruits are fine. We do limit the amount of fruit to 3 pieces per day so as not to go overboard. But this challenge is really all about ingredient lists. Not the natural sugars found in fruits.

  7. Perfect thank you. I started today with this smoothie and loved it! Gotta watch those labels! 🙂

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Shannon – My pleasure! Enjoy!

  8. Would this still taste ok without the spinach?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Savannah – Sure!

  9. Hi, I just tried this and it is delicious. I am having it for lunch so I wanted something fairly dense as I am out for dinner later. I also had an avocado in the house so substituted the spinach for half the avocado, it is wonderful. I think it will keep me full all afternoon. I can’t wait to try the others. Yummy!! Thanks. 🙂

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Tanisha – That’s great! I haven’t worked up the nerve to add avocado to my smoothies yet. But eventually, I’ll break down and give it a try….

  10. I am currently doing a national clean eating challenge, and almond milk is not allowed, due to additives. However I have found many “clean” smoothie recipes that include almond milk. I’m confused.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Nancy – I make my own. I think most people just make the exception for convenience. But if you really want to stick to it, then making your own is the only way. I have a recipe and video on my blog for how to do it if you’re interested. It’s a very simple process.
