  1. Peanut Butter Banana is always my go to smoothie! Somehow always hits the spot–adding coffee is great too 🙂

  2. I’m so boring. I usually makes shakes for my kids. Frozen fruit, almond milk and yogurt. Would love some new ideas.

  3. my favorite smoothie is a combo of frozen tropical fruits, drippy globs of peanut butter, fruity greek yogurt + milk & honey. comes out to this light peach color and it is mmm mmmm!

  4. This looks so energizing and delicious! This type of smoothie is actually my favorite, and i like to put some spinach in as well.

  5. My favorite smoothie is a mocha or latte flavor (depending on if you use vanilla or chocolate protein powder)!!! I also like to add as much veggies in there to make it healthier, yet still delicious!

  6. I make green smoothies all the time- with kale or spinach, and a variety of frozen fruit. I usually stick with water as the liquid, though sometimes I use coconut milk 🙂

  7. The Rawsome Blend from Kure Juice Bar in Portland, OR is amazing. Apples, lemon, kale, spinach, parsley, celery – yum!

  8. Almond milk, chia seeds, almond butter, banana, and vanilla protein powder! O my yummy milkshake! (It will bring the boys to the yard! =) <—–dorking out this Saturday!)

  9. My favorite smoothie is mixing mango, pineapple, baby kale, and spinach with honey, turmeric, and coconut milk. So so good!

  10. My favorite smoothie ever– bananas, blueberries, avocado, and peanut butter with almond milk. The key ingredient is the avocado– makes the smoothie texture silkier.

  11. My favorite smoothie is similar to that in the post, but it is:
    Scoop vanilla whey protein powder
    One scoop peanut butter
    Chia seeds
    Almond milk
    Half a frozen banana
    1/2 cup of quick oats

    Delicious and super filling!

  12. My current favorite is a smoothie made with 8 oz. water, a splash of chocolate coconut milk, 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder, and a half-scoop of peanut butter cookie flavor protein powder (by Proti-zyme). I add two big handfuls of mixed greens and blend it very well. Yum!

  13. I do almost this exact smoothie! I use chocolate protein powder instead of vanilla! I love peanut butter in smoothies!

  14. Yum! My favorite smoothie is frozen berries + banana + protein powder + coconut oil + coconut or almond milk. I’ll have to try yours though. Sounds delicious!

  15. My current favorite smoothie is a take off my fave from Tropical Smoothie Cafe, the Island Green. I combine spinach, half a banana, frozen pineapple and mango chunks, and coconut water. No extra sweetener needed. It’s yum!
