From time to time, I love sharing a recipe I’ve been making organically in my kitchen and enjoying on a regular basis. This smoothie is one of those recipes.
It all started with an obsession for banana and peanut butter, which goes way back to my favorite green smoothie.
Since then, my taste has become slightly more sophisticated and I’ve been enjoying more adaptogen and green powders in my smoothies for an extra boost of nutrition.
We hope you love this smoothie bowl. It’s perfect for all you peanut butter banana lovers out there who also love a healthy dose of greens.
The recipe happens in your blender in about 5 minutes.
Banana is blended with cauliflower and blueberries for a creamy, perfectly sweet base. Then add in a big handful of greens, a healthy dose of peanut (or your favorite nut/seed) butter for saltiness and protein, and dairy-free milk.
Not to worry, these add-ins don’t really affect the flavor because the banana and peanut butter combo still shine through (phew).
We hope you love this smoothie bowl. It’s:
Packed with nutrients + vitamins
Quick & Easy
& Super delicious
This would make the perfect snack or breakfast, especially during warmer months. It’s light and refreshing yet totally satisfying. Top yours off with a little granola for even more staying power.

Peanut Butter Banana Green Smoothie Bowl
- 2 small ripe bananas (previously peeled, sliced, and frozen)
- 1/2 cup wild (or regular) frozen blueberries (organic when possible)
- 1 cup spinach (packed // fresh or bought fresh then frozen // organic when possible)
- 1 cup cauliflower (either raw or steamed then frozen // organic when possible)
- 3/4 -1 cup dairy-free milk (or storebought // we used DIY coconut milk)
- 1 tsp maca powder
- 1 tsp ashwagandha
- 1 tsp spirulina (or barley grass powder)
- 2 Tbsp hemp seeds
- 3 Tbsp peanut butter*
Add all the ingredients (bananas, blueberries, spinach, cauliflower, dairy-free milk, maca, ashwagandha, spirulina, hemp seeds, and peanut butter) to a high-speed blender.
Blend on low/medium and use the blender wand to push ingredients around (if you don't have a blender wand, just blend on low until combined.)
Add a little bit more coconut milk in small increments until creamy and smooth. For a thicker smoothie bowl, add less milk. For a thinner smoothie bowl, add more milk.
Taste flavor and adjust if desired, adding more peanut butter for saltiness or banana for sweetness. Spirulina or more spinach will add a deeper green hue.
Divide between serving bowls and garnish with toppings of choice. We went with oil-free granola, rawnola, and more frozen blueberries.
Best when fresh. Store leftovers in the refrigerator up to 3 days. Freeze into ice cubes for longer-term storage (~1 month) and add to future smoothies.
