I love the peanut butter flavor in this smoothie! Plus, there's 18 grams of protein—so it actually fills me up, unlike other smoothies. I may be biased because I love peanut butter so much, but I'll definitely be making this smoothie a lot.

This smoothie is AMAZING!! I accidentally left out the milk, but my banana was very ripe and not frozen, so it didn't make too much of a difference. I also used a bag mix of kale and spinach, which doesn't affect the flavor at all. The flavor is dead-on PB&J, and it was so good that I actually am contemplating having a second one today. It's a good thing that my Ninja is in the dishwasher and I have to go out later, or else I would totally spin another one up.

Amazing Peanutbutter taste really comes through Had all the ingredients but didn't believe that much spinach would really hide behind the peanut butter flavors. Planned on throwing it out but drank it down so surprised. Based on this recipe, I will return to this site again! Pros: Great boost of Potassium
