It’s time for the Peanut Butter Bash! This time our ingredients were Peanut Butter and Quinoa, which is a great motivator for a healthy treat. I came up with a Healthy Peanut Butter Milkshake. It’s gluten free, and if you use almond or cashew milk instead of the whipping cream mentioned in my recipe, you can make it totally vegan.Print

This milkshake doesn’t use ice cream. Instead one of my secret ingredients is frozen bananas! Got bananas that are about to go bad? Peel them, put them in a ziplock bag, and just pop them in the freezer for a couple of hours. Then they’re ready! Frozen bananas made this shake taste creamy, thick, and delicious!
My second secret ingredient? Quinoa! It’s great to add to smoothies and shakes, and your kids will never know! It’s so versatile and can be served both hot and cold. It’s packed with 8 g of protein and 6 g of fiber per cup when cooked. It’s also a good source of iron! It’s great addition for a protein packed shake.
I buy these ready cooked quinoa cups for my husband’s lunch. Each one has 1 cup of quinoa, so I keep one in the fridge and just dole it out a 1/4 cup at a time for these shakes.
My kids devour these milkshakes every time I make them. It’s great for an after school snack to keep them from grazing until dinner, and it’s great for on the go, too.

I LOVE bananas in smoothies. And peanut butter! I’ve never ever tried quinoa in a smoothie though. I need to now that I see it can be done!
I can’t WAIT to try this smoothie (with almond milk)! I’ll probably make quinoa one night and use the extras in this smoothie the next morning. It looks really filling which is great!
Thank you for this creative recipe. I pinned it!
Not really a PB fan, but my son might like this. He loves Reese’s so… xD And since he’s been on a milkshake bender lately, I could try this out on him. Thanks for the idea!
I love anything with peanut butter! I am going to make this today!
These are interesting flavors. I know that if I get a milkshake with quinoa in it, the chocolate chips and whipped cream better not be optional 🙂 I will have to give this a go – must eat healthier!
This sounds divine!! I need to make it asap, I love peanut butter smoothies… I love peanut butter anything, actually 🙂

I love peanut butter but never had a milkshake like this before. Thanks for the recipe definitely trying it out tomorrow.

I am not a peanut butter fan but looking at your milkshakes, it makes me want to try it ASAP!
The frozen banana is genius!
This sounds amazing. This is totally healthy, minus the whipped of course. 😉
