I whip this up for an on-the-go breakfast at least once a week. And what a great way to save and use bananas that are about to get too ripe - peeling and freezing them...genius! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe. Imakes an excellent replacement for breakfast or a healthy snack, tastes good, never gets old, and the best part is: you can manipulate it anyway you wa (change from plain to flavored yogurt, add berries/fruits, etc). I currently make mine with Adam's No Stir Peanut Butter, Dannon Light and Fit strawberry yogurt and Blue Diamond Almond Milk, tastes just as good as the original recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really like this smoothie as is, but today I tweaked the recipe out of necessity, and I liked it even better! I only had about a half a frozen banana, so I added a big handful of frozen red grapes (I keep them on hand for snacks. It reminded me of the peanut butter and grape jelly with banana that tastes so yummy on a sandwich. I used fresh farm milk, but since the recipe only calls for a half cup, I didn't worry about the extra fat. I also used Fage all natural Greek yogurt. This smoothie is fulfilling and keeps me going for a long time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm not a big fruit smoothie person, but I absolutely loved this. I made it exactly as written. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought it was a little bland so I added a teaspoon of chocolate sauce. I used the Bees Knees Peanut Butter and I also used Frozen yogurt bc I didnt have plain yogurt. It was a big hit with my kids! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this smoothie, but it does taste a lot like bananas, which I don't mind. I use Trader Joe's natural peanut butter (the unsalted kind) and it turns out great. I have this for breakfast or for lunch, usually when I am going out to dinner and I don't want to have a heavy lunch! I feel this is nutritious and keeps me full fpr hours. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I use Jif natural peanut butter, which doesn't taste any different from regular Jif but it's still under the category of natural. My kids and I love this smoothy more than any of the other ones from Ellie, though we have yet to try the peach pie smoothy-can't wait to try that! Anyway, I follow the recipe exactly and think it tastes great-might be the peanut butter brand that some people are getting that bland taste from. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe! It's like drinking a thick creamy milkshake. I use Greek Yogurt and 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, 1 tablespoon of natural peanut butter and 1 tablespoon of Skippy peanut butter. If I'm feeling really decadent I'll melt down 2 squares of dark chocolate and add it to the mix. Or I'll add some chocolate syrup. I drink it for breakfast or lunch and it keeps me satisfied for hours. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy. I made some additions though. I added a 1/2 Tbsp. more of peanut butter and a tsp. of pure maple syrup for more sweetness as some suggested. I also added a tsp. of vanilla. item not reviewed by moderator and published
One of my favorite snacks that my mother and grandmother made for me as a kid was banana and peanut butter. This smoothie elevated the amazingly comforting flavors of the banana and peanut butter with the smooth yogurt and milk!!!! My family absolutely LOVES this smoothie!!! It is simply delicious! :-) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved it, it saves me a trip & money to "Jamba Juice". I put more peanut butter that's cause I love the stuff. Thank you Ellie & Foodnetwork.com item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you're not worried about calories, go ahead and add a full 2 Tbsp of peanut butter. I find that 1 1/2 Tbsp doesn't really cut it for me... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ok for a banana smoothie...not much peanut butter flavor... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was surprised that many were adding more sweetness to this recipe. I always keep over ripe bananas in my freezer and that was plenty of sweetness for this smoothie. I used Greek-style yogurt which has a better taste and texture than regular yogurt. For all you WW members this would be 6 points. It seems like a lot, but I use it for my breakfast or lunch meal, not a snack. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm not a big fan of PB or bananas, but I can tolerate them, and had a lot laying around, so I used this recipe as a simple way to get ride of it all. I attempted to make this recipe without a blender in my college dorm, but discovered it was a little too thick to drink >=P. I ended up making a few adjustments, popped it in the freezer, and made ice cream out of it. I liked it a lot better in ice cream form =]. Ah...dorm room resourcefulness! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried this recipe and I thought it was a bit "heavy" so I tried several alterations. 1) I tried peanut butter with half a banana and some soymilk 2) I Next, I used Nasoya silken creations ( the chocolate kind) with some peanut butter and banana and this was my favorite. This smoothie is high in calories but you can play around with alternatives to create one lower in calories. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm not a big fan of bananas but I love peanut butter, so I gave this smoothie a try. I added a little bit of honey for a little extra sweetness. My kids loved it. Me, not so much. Next time, I think I'll try using chocolate soymilk like someone else suggested. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This smootie is so good! However, I added a 1/2 a tablespoon of natural honey to add a little more sweetness to it and it made it just perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
MMMM...lovely. I did some changes, I used chocolate soymilk and did not freeze the banana and added an ice cube. It comes close to tasting like a Reese's Pieces smoothie. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It's really good, but I use vanilla yogurt and add a little honey which makes it perfect... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Athough this is good, Ellie says it's great for a snack. At over 300 calories, that is more like a meal. I would drink this for breafast and not as a snack. I think her meals are healthy but high in calories. We're all looking to cut back on calories! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have a big sweet tooth and this smoothie was a perfect blend of sweet and savory. I used it as a meal replacement and I was left full and didn't crave anything once I was finished. On top of that, it was super easy to make! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The smoothie is not too sweet, not too salty. It is a delicious all-natural smoothie. I used all organic ingredients since there are so few ingredients in the recipe. For those who are considering making this smoothie, this is not a super sweet milkshake. It has a mild flavor, but is very refreshing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought that this was a pretty good smoothie, but wasn't quite what I was expecting. I thought it was a little bland and just needed a little extra something. I found another similar low-fat recipe that I liked a little better than this one. The only differences are that you use 8 oz. of a low-fat vanilla yogurt, 2 tbsp of peanut butter and 2 tbsp of choc. syrup. The milk and frozen banana are the same. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm skeptical of the taste of anything that claims to be healthy, but this is SO GOOD! I love it. My boyfriend makes it for us all the time and it's delicious. We use soy milk instead of nonfat milk and the taste is still incredible. I love healthy food that doesn't taste boring and this smoothie certainly isn't. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is perfect as is! Even better than a rich milkshake. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Oddly enough I am not a peanut butter or banana fan... However, this smoothie is delicious! I used non-fat sour cream instead of yogurt since it's what I had in the fridge. It has a silky smooth texture. A must try! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My three kids and I made this and none of us could even take more than one sip. We tried the squirt of chocolate like someone said, and it made it barely tolerable...then we added a couple of frozen strawberries...slightly better, but not worth even one calorie. I'm bummed because I thought it sounded good. We ended up making banana mango smoothie with frozen mango & banana, some OJ, and some plain yogurt! MUCH BETTER!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this was good, but I added lite chocolate syrup to mine and made it more palatable to my picky husband. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm currently training for a triathlon which requires a huge balance of protein and carboyhdrates with small amounts of fat. This shake is my base for EVERY protein shake I make now. I usually use a full cup of nonfat milk and leave out the yogurt (yogurt tastes too sour to me). Great add ons for anyone training like I am... I always add 1/3 cup whey protein powder, a splash of vanilla and 1/4 - 1/2 cup of rolled oats (depending on the amount of cardio I'm doing that day). If you like yogurt, I recommend trying it with chocolate yogurt. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I've had milkshakes at many restaurants that were not nearly as tasty as this, besides being a lot worse for me too. Try it! YUM! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent, tasty smoothie. I added a squirt of light chocolate syrup for a bit of added sweetness, but it would be good as-is, too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My Dad and I could both live on Peanut Butter. I think he would like this also. I had it for breakfast and it filled me up perfectly and gave me energy without weighing me down. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My kids love this as part of breakfast. I make a double recipe using vanilla yogurt and one container of frozen low-fat chocolate pudding, a bit more peanut butter than called for, and a drizzle of flax-seed oil. item not reviewed by moderator and published

How can you NOT love this? It is absolutely delicious. I have made it almost everyday this week for a great snack or lunch. The protein really fills me up and I feel like I am having something really fattening but it's not! Highly recommend this smoothie! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this smoothie was great. I didn't have plain yogurt so I made it withnon fat frozen yogurt and only 1/2 to 3/4 of the banana. I like it because it makes me feel like I'm faving something really bad, but it's got a ton of fiber and protein! Love it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
