Peanut Butter Banana Chia Smoothie


Peanut Butter Banana Chia Smoothie

No bananas were hurt in the making of this smoothie. Don’t get me wrong, I love bananas but they aren’t exactly easy on the blood sugar. Thank goodness for extracts and flavorings. This way, I can still get all the great banana flavor without the extra carbs. This peanut butter banana chia smoothie is thick and rich and a great way to start your day.

Have you tried using bananas that are between being green & just ripened? It makes a big difference, the time of day, also it could be high protein if you add 1-2 Tbsp hemp hearts & 1 Tbsp flaxseed meal. Thank you, love your recipes.


What kind of Greek yogurt and peanut butter do you use? When I made this, it was delicious, but was more carbs than what I see above. Any help is greatly appreciated!


I get the banana extract from Super Target, bet Walmart has it! Keep checking, maybe health food stores?

Where do you get your banana extract from?  I can’t find it anywhere in Cairns :(


For those of you wondering about PB2, a better sugar-free alternative for you may be defatted peanut flour.  You can get it on amazon and lots of online nutrition websites.  Same idea as PB2 but without sugar.  I frequently use it in smoothies and muffins, etc. to give that peanut butter flavor with hardly any fat and no sugar.

I am going to make this for breakfast (minus the banana extract because I don’t have it, but WILL get some)!  Wondering on the PB2, I have it but have never used it because don’t know what to do with it.   It does contain sugar and my PB of choice does not, I wonder how much PB2 I would add and what that little bit of sugar will do… I am not diabetic but have gone on a weight loss plan which is pretty much sugar free (except for the occasional cheat, which is not often).  This looks really good! … Read more »

If you haven’t tried the wonders of PB2 yet, you might consider it!  Basically dried peanut butter – much less fat and calories, but all the taste (and protein).  I love it in smoothies! They make a version with cocoa powder added that is also tasty.
