Healthy Tropical Smoothie Peanut Paradise

I don’t know about you, but I LOVED Tropical Smoothie when I lived in Vegas.  I think I used to get one every week.  I would always get the peanut paradise because who doesn’t love peanut butter and bananas together? So one day I actually decided to look through the nutritional info they have at the counter.  I could not believe it!  It had 800 calories!  So, I decided to make my own version.  Mine only contains 315 calories and is super easy to make.



I feed this to my daughter for breakfast sometimes and add the flax.  She has no idea she is eating something healthy!

Healthy Tropical Smoothie Peanut Paradise

Prep Time 5 min


  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 T fresh ground peanut butter ( I use Sprouts Organic)
  • 2/3 cup non dairy milk ( I use homemade almond milk , but soy would work fine too.)
  • If you wanted to make it even more healthy, you could add 1 T flax meal


  1. Blend everything in a magic bullet until you get the consistency you desire.  I like mine thick so I can eat it with a spoon.  Sometimes, if I feel like getting crazy, I will through in some chocolate chips.
