All the smoothies.
If you search my site for smoothies, you’ll quickly realize that I’m of the opinion that one can never have too many smoothie recipes. The various combinations of fruits, nut butter, veggies, milks, juices, spices, et cetera make for endless options!
In this household, some of our smoothie staples are bananas, nut butter, and homemade coconut milk. Add in some cinnamon, chia seeds, and applesauce, and you have a winner!
It’s always smoothie season.
Living in the south, there’s no reason for me to give up my smoothie addiction in the winter, either. You can regularly find me feeding my family a smoothie for breakfast, lunch, OR dinner year ’round.
And my crazy family doesn’t complain. My kids wrap themselves up in blankets at the kitchen table and happily drink their smoothies. Haha!
If you’re a fellow smoothie addict, you’ll probably enjoy this cinnamon peanut butter smoothie. It’s an easy tweak on one of our family staple smoothies, and adding in the cinnamon gives a nice subtle warmth to the smoothie.
Here are some of our other favorite smoothies, if you’re on the lookout for new recipes:
- Carrot Orange Smoothie
- Beets & Berries Smoothie Bowl
- Peanut Butter Mocha Smoothie (note: I don’t usually give this one to my kids, they don’t need any help in the energy department!)
- Healthy Eggnog Smoothie (one of my winter favs! Though I’m all for eggnog any time of year…)
- Chocolate Almond Butter Pumpkin Smoothie
- Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
- Apple Pie Smoothie Bowl
Like all my other smoothies, I go for easy in this one, too. Just a few simple ingredients that every real foodie will have on hand, a blender, and boom! Smoothie heaven.
And easy breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack awaits! And if you can’t finish it off, pour it into popsicle holders and freeze for a treat later on. 😉

Umm, YES please! This looks amazing. I’ll have to sub the bananas out, since I’m allergic, but I’m thinking pumpkin or sweet potato. Oh man, I want this NOW! 🙂 First time here, but I like you! Off to subscribe…
Haha! Welcome, Heather! 🙂 I think pumpkin and sweet potato would be great, especially if you’re using almond butter. (I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin and peanut butter together, but if you like it, be my guest!) Thanks so much for stopping by AND subscribing! 😀
Nice idea for popsicles!
Mmm… Good thinking, Marge!
MMmm this sounds addictive. I’d drink it all day long! Multiple ones of course 😉
Haha! Yes… I might have made more than one a day. 😉
This looks so so delicious I would really like one right this moment! 🙂

Wowee! So yummy. I love nut butter in my smoothies!

How many servings does this make?
Three to four.
Mmmm this looks so delicious! I love the combinations of flavours in this recipe!
Cannot wait to try it!! Thanks Raia!
Thank you! I hope you enjoy it!
My husband and I made this yesterday and it has become our favorite smoothie. The recipe on the front page said to use 1 cup of peanut butter and the one on this page 1/3 cup. We weren’t sure which was right so we used a little more than 1/2 cup. We love anything peanut or almond butter and this didn’t disappoint. It eas also very filling.
I’m so glad you and your husband enjoyed it, Brenda! Thank you for letting me know. 🙂 Would you mind explaining what you mean by “the recipe on the front page?” I’d like to fix that, but I’m not sure what you mean. 🙂
You gotta try this with costco almond butter!
I hope you enjoy it!
So yummy. I love nut margarine in my smoothies!
It is a favorite addition at my house, too! 🙂
