Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie Recipe
Many of my summer mornings have started the same way:
- Sleep in as late as late as possible
- Log on to my computer
- Make this peanut butter cup smoothie
- Savor every spoonful
Earlier this summer I discovered this recipe from Happy Herbivore.
I’m not usually a smoothie person (too sour) and I’m not really a banana person (too meh). But for some reason, this particular smoothie rocks my mornings.
Why? It uses ingredients you likely have at home right now. It tastes like a peanut butter cup. It can even pass for dessert.
So this is clearly the smoothie of my summer. A summer that is going way too fast.
Go make yourself this smoothie before you start craving warm breakfasts. Even if it’s not breakfast time.
Here’s a song that will remind you to relax and savor the rest of summer, and August in particular:
Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie: The Cost
Another reason I love this peanut butter cup smoothie is because it’s so incredibly cheap:
- 2 bananas = $.45
- Peanut butter (1 tablespoon) = $.11
- Cocoa (1 tablespoon) = $.12
- Non-dairy milk (1/4 cup) = $.25
Total cost for one smoothie = $.93

- 2 frozen bananas (Peel bananas, cut into large slices, and freeze overnight. Don't attempt to peel a frozen banana!)

- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
- 1/4 cup milk (Your choice - I used vanilla almond milk)
- Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Add more milk, if needed.
