Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie Recipe


Stave off snack cravings with this tasty Peanut Butter Cup smoothie that’s easy to whip up!

Is peanut butter good for you in smoothies?

I mean, it tastes really good. 
Peanut butter is also a great addition to any smoothie.
It offers heart-healthy fats and fiber naturally and helps make any protein-packed smoothie more nutritionally balanced. 
I recommend using a brand of natural peanut butter with less added sugar.

Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie Recipe


3 cups vanilla-flavored milk (soy, nut, skim)

1/2 cup reduced-fat peanut butter

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 cups ice

1/4 cup honey

1/4 teaspoon salt

Mini peanut butter cups (optional) 

How to make a Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie

Combine all ingredients in a blender run until ice is crushed and mixture is smooth.

Make it dessert and garnish with one or two mini peanut butter cups cut into pieces.

Per serving nutritional information: 50 g. protein, 4 g. fiber, 366 calories

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.
