The Skinniest Of Smoothies

The Best Skinny Banana Smoothie


With our upcoming move looming, (thanks for all the great feedback yesterday!) my to-do list ever growing and my mind racing at night.

It’s becoming clear that taking care of myself has got to be a priority! Especially,  if I plan on keeping my sanity and health in tact. 

A big part of this is eating right…which I typically do, at least at mealtimes. But, where I always tend to drop the ball is snacking…

I’m trying to change my “peanut M&M loving” ways with some healthier options.

My new “go to” these days are easy and quick fixes, like this skinny banana smoothie, it’s the best!

I’m sharing my favorite one here today.

In order to come up with this pared down, super easy, low calorie, high protein version, I tweaked a few peanut butter banana smoothie recipes I found on Pinterest, until I got it right. 

I think it’s a winner!


Here’s the recipe…

Banana Peanut Butter Skinny Smoothie

1 banana (frozen is even better)

1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
5-7 ice cubes
1 tablespoon low fat smooth peanut butter

Mix ingredients in a blender

(I’m obsessed with my Vitamix, and I have friends that swear by their Magic Bullets) and enjoy! 

It’s a great afternoon pick me up.

You can also add fresh baby spinach, you won’t even taste it. And, if you don’t like Almond Milk, feel free to use any type of milk you have.

I love this with skim milk as well.

What healthy tweaks are you making these days?

    I'm a huge fan of smoothies! I make them every morning. To ad a small bite of ginger to the banana smoothie gives a fresh – an a kind of healthy – twist to it.

  5. Sounds great to me, although I would probably have to add another tablespoon or so of peanut butter!!
