Smoothie Ingredients

  • Strawberries
  • Any milk you prefer
  • Peanut Butter
  • Greek Yogurt

What Type of Strawberries to Use

I always use frozen fruit for smoothies. Fresh fruit will leave your smoothies watery. Frozen fruit will thicken them up. You can use fresh fruit, but you will also need to add ice if you are looking for a thick smoothie.

What Type of Peanut Butter to Use

You can use any nut butter including almond butter, sun butter, etc. Use whatever you like. I only use natural peanut butter. When buying peanut butter read the labels. The ingredients should only say peanuts (and sometimes salt). Most peanut butters on the shelf are loaded with preservatives and added sugar. I avoid those.

The “no-stir natural peanut butters” usually aren’t natural. Take a look at the ingredients. You have to be careful. Natural peanut butters usually will require some stirring because the oil will separate from the peanuts, which is normal. This is also a sign that you purchased the real thing.

Which Blender to Use

I use this Blendtec blender from Amazon. It never fails me and always produces thick and creamy smoothies. You want something with high-powered blades that blends well. I wouldn’t say this blender is quiet, but it doesn’t need to be.

I don’t have much experience with other high quality blenders (other than the Instant Pot blender which works well) to recommend any others.

How to Make the Smoothie Creamy

If your smoothie is rough and gritty, it’s typically because you didn’t use frozen fruit, you didn’t blend it long enough, or you didn’t use a quality high-powered blender. When I first started making smoothies I was using a $19 blender for Walmart. That wouldn’t cut it for most smoothies, especially when leafy vegetables were added to the mixture.

You can also make it creamier by adding more of the thicker ingredients like yogurt.
