Ingredients in this Peanut Butter Powder Blueberry Cinnamon Smoothie
The peanut butter powder is a slightly random ingredient here, but after that, the rest of the ingredients are pretty common for smoothies. Here’s what I put in this smoothie:
- greek yogurt – For this smoothie, Greek yogurt is used to make it extra creamy and add additional protein.
- unsweetened vanilla almond milk – I like using this as a base for my smoothies for the creamy yet neutral taste. You could probably skip the vanilla almond milk and use water if needed.
- vanilla protein powder – Use your favorite vanilla or unflavored protein powder to add protein to this smoothie.
- peanut butter powder – There are a few brands of peanut butter powder; in this recipe, I used PB2.
- cinnamon – The key ingredient, the one that made a ‘meh’ smoothie into an ‘OMG’ smoothie – is the CINNAMON. Do not forget the cinnamon.
- frozen blueberries & banana – The frozen fruits give the smoothie flavor, color and chill. I think you’ll be surprised how the cinnamon works with the banana and blueberries!
And guess what? This is probably my best smoothie creation yet. Of course, none of this could be possible without my handy NutriBullet. Smoothie making machine since ’14.
It’s not the most powerful thing out there, but it does the job dependably for a super sweet low price (especially at Costco!). But seriously, it’s the best for smoothies.
What is peanut butter powder?
Let’s talk about peanut butter powder. Mysterious PB powder. I looked it up. It’s just peanuts pressed so that the fat and oils are removed. It tastes virtually the same as normal peanut butter (once you add some water to the powder).
The most popular brand of powdered peanut butter is PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter. You can also use PB Fit Peanut Butter Powder, which is what I found at Costco. I think Jif has a version too. It looks like a lot but starts going pretty fast when you use it for smoothies all the time.
Creamy and surprisingly delicious protein smoothie with blueberries, cinnamon, banana, greek yogurt, and PB2 (peanut butter powder)!!
- 1/4 cup whole fat or 2% greek yogurt
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (1/4 cup for thicker smoothies)
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 3 tablespoons peanut butter powder (such as PB2)
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 frozen banana, peeled and cut into chunks
- Add greek yogurt, almond milk, cinnamon, peanut butter powder, and protein powder to your blender or NutriBullet. Blend for 5-10 seconds until powder is mixed with liquids.
- Add banana and blueberries to the blender. Blend until smooth. Enjoy!
You can definitely dump all ingredients in at once. I like to mix the powders with the liquids first to ensure everything is well mixed.
PREP AHEAD: Peel and cut banana, add 1 cup blueberries to ziploc bag and freeze. Measure and combine protein powder, peanut butter powder, and cinnamon in a container and dump into blender when needed.
