You guys know I love my peanut butter and I share a lot of peanut butter recipes here at Running on Real Food. Today I’ve got something a little different using few of my favourite ingredients, peanut butter and coffee. It’s a peanut butter coffee smoothie and you will love these two flavours together in this creamy and delicious smoothie. This recipe is vegan, gluten-free, high in protein and has no added sugar.

Adams has been featured twice already on Running on Real Food, once with these Mini PB Oat Cups and a PB Oat Smoothie and again with these No-Bake Fruit and Nut Balls. Today I’ve added their delicious, natural peanut butter to an amazing, creamy coffee smoothie that is sure to energize your day.
Peanut Butter Everything
Whether it’s a spoonful between work and the gym, added to my morning chia seed oatmeal, scooped into a smoothie or as an ingredient in homemade protein bars, natural peanut butter is a staple in my kitchen. Some of my favourite healthy snacks include a banana sliced in half and topped with peanut butter and sprinkling of hemp seeds, dates stuffed with PB and walnuts or sliced apple and peanut butter sprinkled with cinnamon.
Creamy Peanut Butter Coffee Smoothie
This smoothie features all my favourite smoothie ingredients: coffee, peanut butter, frozen banana and vegan protein powder. If you want to amp up the nutrition you could always add superfoods like spinach, spirulina, hemp seeds or chia seeds to the mix. I even added half a teaspoon of turmeric, which seems a little odd but you can’t taste it and it has wonderful anti-inflammatory properties. And the frozen banana is the key to creamy smoothies so don’t skip that part!
You could also check out my posts on the best superfoods to add to smoothies and the best vegetables to add to smoothies for more ideas. I might even sneak some frozen sweet potato or frozen cauliflower in the next one for added volume.
This smoothie is ready to fuel your next hike, or long training run, a tough morning workout or just a busy day at work. I could barely believe how good it tastes, the hint of peanut butter with coffee, chocolate and banana is unreal!Print
