  • Blender: Having a good quality blender will make a huge difference in the consistency of your smoothie. Make sure your blender can handle the thickness of it. If you have an older blender or one that is not very powerful, no worries. Your smoothie may not have the same consistency but it will still be indulgent tasting.
  • Add Milk for Consistency: You want your smoothie bowl to be thick, like soft ice cream. You should need a spoon to eat it with. Add the milk slowly so you can control how thick or thin your peanut butter smoothie ends up.
  • Freeze your Bananas: Use frozen bananas for flavor, texture and to help create a cold smoothie. Peel overripe bananas and place them in a freezer-safe bag. They will keep for up to 2 months.
  • Leave the Ice Out: Ice will add water, and water will make it runny and watery instead of thick and smooth.
