This healthy strawberry banana smoothie with peanut butter is made without any added sugar. It’s smooth and creamy packed with fresh fruit, vitamin C, and healthy fiber and fats.
Homemade smoothies are our favorite summer go-to. They are so easy to put together with fresh or frozen fruit, and during the hot summer months, it makes the perfect on-the-go breakfast or snack! Bananas, strawberries, and peanut butter are the perfect flavor combo and you can customize this simple smoothie to include the toppings or add-ins of your choice!
Smoothies are a great breakfast or snack option but sometimes you can feel hungry again after eating them. To solve this I like to add in a scoop (or two!) of creamy peanut butter and use milk instead of water to not only add some healthy fats into the smoothie but it helps to keep me fuller for longer! Which is always what we want!
You could also add some ground golden flaxseeds(my favorite!), chia seeds, or protein powder to add even more health benefits!
Strawberry Banana Smoothie Ingredients
All you need are a few basic ingredients and a high-powered blender to make this delicious breakfast smoothie!
Frozen strawberries - Adds sweet and fruity flavor and the frozen berries will make your smoothie nice and thick with a frothy texture.
Natural Peanut Butter - I use creamy natural peanut butter because it's made without any added sugars. It also adds in some healthy fats and a smooth, delicious flavor.
Whole milk - My favorite milk to use is raw milk from the farm but grass-fed organic milk is perfectly fine! Feel free to use also your favorite dairy-free milk alternatives such as almond milk or oat milk.
Fresh or frozen banana - gives this smoothie a creamy consistency and natural sweetness.

- Chia seeds or hemp seeds to add a boost of Omega-3 fatty acids and fiber.
- Almond butter or cashew butter, are great nut butter alternatives if you are allergic to peanuts.
- Unsweetened almond milk, oat milk, or soy milk instead of dairy milk.
- Flax seeds are a good source of fiber and healthy fats, I love to use golden flaxseeds because they have a better flavor.
- Drizzle pure maple syrup, if you want a sweeter drink.
- ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract can add a nice flavor.
- A scoop of your favorite protein powder.
High-speed blender, I like this one because it comes with a travel lid.
Pro Tips to Make the perfect smoothie
- I sometimes like to rinse my frozen fruit to get off that extra ice and it helps everything blend together more easily.
- If the smoothie is too thick at a splash of milk then blend until smooth.
- Use frozen fruit so your smoothie is as cold and frothy as possible. Avoid using ice cubes because they can water down your drink.
