DIY: Peanut Butter | Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie

29. Homemade Peanut ButterPin

 

After the almond milk and labneh, today is something we so frequently use – peanut butter. Peanut butter is considered to be good. While on my weight loss mission – that feels like ages ago now! πŸ˜• – one pre-gym snack that my instructor used to advise, apart from a banana, used to be 2 tbsp peanut butter spread across a slice of brown bread. It is considered as good protein. I am really not a fan of peanut butter but I like to have a pack anytime in my pantry, in case when the craving strikes. But ever since I have learned that home made peanut butter tastes good enough and is preservative free, I prefer making a small batch that gets done within a few days and then make a fresh batch whenever I feel like.

Normally I love it slathered in bread, but even spreading it on a hot chapathi off the tawa is amazing. Have you tried that way? πŸ™‚ Banana and peanut butter is another delicious match. So the recipe I share with you is this simple smoothie that can put to rest any cravings that you have. One thing I love about this smoothie is how filling it can be when you need a light meal.

  4. Very true. Peanut butter was my daily breakfast all through my workout days back then – like you ages ago! I too keep a jar always and swtich between crunchy and creamy – though crunchy is my fav. Slather one slice of bread wth this and another with a jam and keep slices of banana sandwiched – perfect bf on a laziest day! Yum. Banana and peanut is the best match. During Ramadan, I made this smoothie at least three to four times. πŸ™‚

    So did the whole this yield that small jar in the pic?

    I love the smoothie picture. You have chosen colors so carefully that complements every element in the frame! Fantastic.

      Thank you so much Kanak…

  10. Loving you DIY projects Rafee. I have only one question for this peanut butter recipe. Do we need to add olive oil? Is extracted oil from peanut not enough to keep the blades running?

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      The olive oil will allow it to loosen up a bit. You can omit it if your peanuts leave out sufficiently oil to come out smooth… Thanks a lot Rimli…

    Love the colors in that smoothie photo!
    Being an American of course I love peanut butter! On toast, on chocolate, on crackers, in cookies, wherever!
    But unfortunately my Kashmiri family thinks peanut butter is disgusting.

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      I totally agree, peanut butter is not so received in my part of the world! But at home, we love it… Thank you so much Bibi…

  12. I love peanut butter and eat it from the jar πŸ™‚ Haven’t prepared it at home in a long while though. The smoothie sounds nice and filling too. Which of the two sweet girls wrote that ? πŸ™‚

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Thank you so much Priya… πŸ™‚ Haha… that is very much my handwriting, maybe it looks childish? πŸ˜€

  13. Hi dear, I do make peanut butter but never added olive oil to it….

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Olive oil only stretches the peanut to release more oil. It is not necessary if the peanut does the job… Thanks a lot Sherien…
