And so we come to the inevitable (if not enviable) smoothie entry. The peanut-butter-and-jelly smoothie came in at Numero 7 on – say it with me – 29 Ways to Honor the Glory of Peanut Butter and Jelly. The original recipe came from Becky Bakes (good thing for me that she also makes smoothies).
You will have extra strawberry creme. I hope this will not prove to be an inconvenience for you.
Sharing this smoothie goodness on Healthy Vegan Friday on The Veggie Nook.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie with Strawberry Creme
- Prep Time: 10
- Total Time: 10
Drink your PB & J with this cool and creamy vegan smoothie that’s topped with a rich and luscious strawberry creme.
- 1 1/2 cups water
- a couple of ice cubes
- 1/3 cup Chocolate PB2 powder*
- 6 oz. plain coconut milk yogurt
- 2 bananas, cut into pieces and frozen
- 1 heaping Tbsp. natural peanut butter
- 2 dates
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup coconut milk (chilled overnight; full fat, the good stuff at the top of the can)
- 4 large strawberries cut into chunks
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 packet crystallized stevia or your sweetener of choice
Make the Strawberry Creme
- In a food processor, process the strawberries until finely chopped. You’ll have to scrape the sides down several times. Add a tiny bit of water if necessary. Add the remaining ingredients and process until very smooth. Put mixture into the refrigerator while you prepare the smoothies.
Make the Smoothies
- Add all of the smoothie ingredients to the blender and process until thick and smooth. Divide between two glasses and top with the strawberry creme.
- *Don’t happen to have Chocolate PB2 powder in your pantry? Just use peanut butter to taste and one tablespoon of cocoa powder.

Peanut butter in a smoothie? I would never have thought of that, and your strawberry creme looks absolutely wonderful.
The chocolate-peanut butter part is good – – but that strawberry creme stuff…
OH GOOD MORNING SMOOTHIE. LOOK AT THAT ADORABLE STRAWBERRY CREME, IT’S LOOKS ALMOST ANGELIC SITTING ON THE TOP THERE 😀
Haha! It is rather pretty, isn’t it? Very happy that I had “leftovers” of it!
Yes I’d welcome leftovers too! 😀
Peanut butter smoothies are my favorite!
This part cracked me up: “You will have extra strawberry creme. I hope this will not prove to be an inconvenience for you.” I feel fairly confident I’ll be able to power through with the extra strawberry creme. I’m brave like that.
Someone’s got to do it.
A divine smoothy, I say! I say: Yummmmm! That added topped strawberry coconut cream looks so luscious too!
Keep the tasty recipes coming, Anne!
I’m trying :-)! Still a long way to go!
Yeah for us! 😉 xxx
strawberry cream!!…I think it stole the show
A Vegan Obsession
You’re kinda right on that :-)!
there are few things that rival a good punch of peanut butter in a smoothie! And chocolate and strawberry?!? well that’s certainly a win for me!
🙂 It’s like best friends or something!
I have added you as a member of my WordPress family with the WordPress Family Award! http://bunnykitchen.com/2013/09/09/wordpress-family-and-sunshine-awards/ 😀
Holy smokes!! Thanks so much, Poppy! I’m honored to be a part of the family!
Its a pleasure to have you as part of it! 😀
Leftover strawberry cream?? Oh nooooooo!
Oh the humanity!!!
Great, I have all the ingredients. Peanut butter with coconut milk is my idea of heaven! I’m making it right now
I’ve tried Peanut Butter and Banana smoothies and thought they were too thick and sweet but this one has great potential…maybe you should change the Unrefined Vegan to just a peanut butter blog 😉 Great stuff here!
I know exactly what you mean, Angela. I also have that issue when blueberries are the predominant ingredient. Oh, woe is me, right ;-)?
I certainly feel like An Unrefined Peanut Butter Vegan!
Mmm best indulgent smoothie ever 🙂

Um, yeah, the leftover strawberry cream would NOT be an inconvenience! I think I could eat that by the spoonful. Love adding peanut butter to smoothies. You are rocking MoFo Annie!
I did in fact eat the strawberry creme with a spoon :-)!
Is it possible to sub mashed white beans instead of the bananas in this one too 🙂
You probably could :-)! But I suggest trying a little bit of oats (if you can eat them) or hemp seeds.
yeah i can eat oats and love hemp seeds. I am not allergic to eeeeevvverything 🙂
