Add some Fruit:
Pump up the smoothie by adding fruit.
Fruits more commonly paired with peanut butter tend to be bananas, apples, and strawberries.
Replace 1:1 ice cubes to frozen fruit. The ice will create a smooth, thick, chilly texture, or a frothy smoothie if only a small amount of ice is used.
- I recommend using creamy natural peanut butter for this recipe (low-fat, please).
- Any kind of milk will work in this smoothie.
- A high-powered blender, like JetBlend, works best for making smoothies, especially when ice is being added.
