  • Simple to customize – Whether you want more raspberries for flavor, more banana for thickness, or more peanut buttery taste, you can customize the smoothie any way you want it.   You can even change up the flavors with different berries like blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, or cherries. Additionally, you can make this into a smoothie bowl and add toppings like granola, honey, and fruit.

Ingredients

  • Frozen Raspberries – This recipe calls for frozen raspberries, but you can use frozen or fresh. The sweet and tart raspberries pack so much flavor and color into the smoothie. If you are going to use fresh raspberries, add 1/4 cup of ice to help create the same creamy consistency that frozen raspberries help make.
  • Frozen Banana – Just like raspberries, I recommend using a frozen banana, but it is not a requirement. Frozen fruit such as bananas help thicken the smoothie so if you are unsure how to freeze a banana and want to try it, it is super easy. Simply follow the instructions in tutorial on how to freeze fruit. Also, the banana helps to sweeten the smoothie so the riper your banana, the sweeter the smoothie will be. If you don’t have a frozen banana, you can add 1/4 cup of ice to get a similar texture.
  • Frozen cauliflower rice – Frozen cauliflower rice has a very mild taste that disappears behind the raspberries and banana. It helps to make this smoothie extra thick and creamy. If you want to omit the frozen cauliflower rice, you can. Instead, you can include 1/4 cup of rolled oats.
  • Peanut butter – Peanut butter adds healthy fats, protein and helps create a creamy and delicious smoothie. You can use any nut or seed butter instead of peanut butter.  Almond butter, cashew butter, tahini or sunbutter (nut free) will work.
  • Greek yogurt – Adds protein and helps create a creamy texture. You can use regular greek yogurt or dairy free yogurt.
  • Almond Milk – You can use any kind of milk you enjoy. I recommend almond milk, but you can also use oat milk, cashew milk, coconut milk, flax milk, or if you’re not dairy free, regular milk.

The sweet, slightly tart raspberries combined with the creamy rich salty taste of peanut butter is an unbeatable match. Anyone that loves PB&J will love the peanut butter and raspberries combo. They work perfectly together in this delicious raspberry peanut butter smoothie.

Is peanut butter good for protein smoothies?

Yes! Peanut butter works perfectly as an added ingredient in any protein smoothie. Since peanut butter only contains 8 grams of protein for 2 tablespoons, I would not use peanut butter as the only protein source. There are many other ingredients options that would pair great with peanut butter to increase the protein of your smoothie including hemp hearts, protein powder or collagen peptides.

Some great fruits used with peanut butter smoothies are bananas, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries.

Can I meal prep this smoothie?

To really get the best creamy delicious flavors and textures of this raspberry and peanut butter smoothie, it is best enjoyed right away. However, you can make smoothie packs by combining all ingredients except the milk and greek yogurt into a freezer safe bag.

To do this, simply slice the banana, add frozen cauliflower, raspberries, and peanut butter into the smoothie pack (I like freezer safe silicone stasher bags) and freeze for up to 3 months. When you are ready to enjoy, dump the contents of the smoothie pack into a blender, add milk, yogurt, and blend.

Storing leftovers

This smoothie is best enjoyed right away. With that said, you can store leftovers in the fridge for up to 24 hours. You may decide to re-blend it with ice before serving.

If you won’t be eating the smoothie leftovers in the next 24 hours, you can freeze it. You can freeze the smoothie for up to 1 month in a freezer safe container. For ease, you could pour the smoothie leftovers into ice cubes trays or use a 1/2 cup Soupercube.

When you are ready to enjoy, add the cubes to a blender with some milk and blend on high until smooth.

Alternatively, you could pour the leftover smoothie into popsicle molds and freeze to enjoy later as a raspberry peanut butter popsicle.

Substitutions

  • Frozen Raspberries – You can use fresh or frozen raspberries, but frozen is recommended. If you don’t have raspberries, you can use any kind of sweet berries such as blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, cherries, or a mixed berry blend.
  • Frozen Banana – Frozen or fresh bananas will work. The banana in this recipe is used to sweeten the raspberry peanut butter smoothie, the riper the banana, the sweeter the smoothie. You can replace the banana with 1-2 tablespoons of honey, maple syrup or 1-2 pitted dates for sweetness.
  • Frozen cauliflower rice – You can also use frozen cauliflower florets in place of the cauliflower rice, but I do not recommend fresh cauliflower (it has a stronger taste). If you don’t want to use cauliflower in the recipe, simply substitute in 1/4 – 1/2 cup of oatmeal or 1/2 an avocado and 1/2 cup of ice.
  • Peanut butter – You can substitute peanut butter with any kind of nut butter, tahini or sunbutter.
  • Greek Yogurt – You can use dairy or nondairy greek yogurt or regular yogurt. Yogurt can be replaced with 1/2 an avocado or you can simply omit it.
  • Almond Milk – Use any dairy free or regular milk you enjoy. You can also use water or coconut water.
