This Strawberry Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie is like a PB&J in a glass. It's full of strawberries, bananas, and natural peanut butter. Add chia seeds for a nutritional boost. Simple, healthy, and nutrient-dense with only five ingredients. {gluten free, whole30, paleo, vegan, dairy free}

Smoothies are one of my favorite easy breakfasts to whip up on the go. Some of our favorites are my Watermelon Peach Smoothie, Blood Orange Mango and Turmeric Smoothie and my Cherry Cheesecake Smoothie Bowl.

The best way to kick off your morning is with a delicious and nutritious smoothie. This strawberry peanut butter banana smoothie recipe is a great way to start the day. It's packed with protein, healthy fats, and vitamins to get you through your morning. The recipe is even vegan and gluten-free, so everyone can enjoy it.

The strawberry and banana combo is a classic, but when we add in a healthy tablespoon or two of nut butter, we add protein and healthy fats. I love using natural nut butters that contain only nuts with no added sugar. The protein helps make it more of a balanced meal that can help us to stay full and no added refined sugar. Yes!

To give this breakfast smoothie more POWER I added chia seeds. These nutrition powerhouses are full of nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidants. You can barely taste them, and most likely, no one in your family will even notice they are there!

Strawberry Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie Ingredients

  1. frozen strawberries - I prefer to buy frozen organic berries, and they are way cheaper than fresh.
  2. banana - Use a ripe banana for extra sweetness. You can also use frozen bananas but then you would need to use fresh strawberries.
  3. natural peanut butter - I prefer natural nut butters that only contain nuts.
  4. chia seeds - The superfood of this smoothie and loaded with nutrients.
  5. almond milk - You can substitute cow's milk, coconut milk, or oat milk.
