Why banana and peanut butter in smoothies?

Because banana makes the perfect smoothie base, and peanut butter is full of protein. For any type of protein smoothie needs–post-workout, breakfast, snack or dessert–banana and peanut butter add both taste and nutrition to smoothies!

Also, if you use all-natural peanut butter…

like I did today–using Adam’s brand All-Natural Peanut Butter–you’re doing even better in your clean eating diet plan.

Adam’s All-Natural Peanut Butter is made with 99% freshly roasted peanuts, and just a pinch of salt. It’s 100% USDA-certified organic, and contains no preservatives, artificial colors or artificial flavors. You’ve my word: it honestly tastes like real peanuts. I highly recommend it.

Another type of peanut butter I recommend is the naturally-ground type, mostly sold at local grocery stores. In a clean eating diet plan, fresh is always best.

For today’s Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie and Clean Eating Snack…

I added fresh Bing cherries. Not only are cherries ripe and ready right now, in the midst of summer, they also add a gorgeous shade of red, and are naturally sweet. Plus, right now, they are sold everywhere!

Clean Eating Snack – Cherry Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie Recipe


  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1/2 cup of fresh Bing cherries, de-cored and halved
  • 1 cup of Vanilla Greek frozen yogurt
  • 1 table spoon of all-natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup of ice
  • 1 cup of organic unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tea spoon of organic dark chocolate syrup (or melted)


  1. Add all ingredients in a high-speed, high-powered blender.
  2. Blend til' smooth.


For blender, I use Vitamix 6300, and it is simply AWESOME! It has a powerful motor that runs at amazing horse power, and is able to blend anything into tasty, smooth consistency. It also has three pre-programmed settings--one of them for smoothies--and allows you to hit a button and leave until smoothie is done.The Vitamix 6300 blender is one of the best investments I've made. I love it, and highly recommend it!
