I have been loving smoothies lately! They’re such a great way to sneak in fruits and vegetables.
The other day I threw together a strawberry and spinach smoothie. I used almond milk, a big handful of spinach and just a couple strawberries.
It was really good!
Even though most fruits and vegetables are 0 points with Weight Watchers, it changes when it comes to smoothies.
They say you should add points because you’re not chewing the food and eating it. You’re drinking it.
Personally, I don’t track smoothies like that. I have a small one every other day and only count points for the milk or any other extras.
This Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie is 2 points for me if I don’t count the banana. If I count the banana it’s 5 points.

To keep this smoothie low in points I used PB2 powdered peanut butter. It has way fewer points than regular peanut butter.
Two tablespoons of regular peanut butter is 7 points vs. two tablespoons of PB2 powdered peanut butter which is only 1 point.
That’s a big difference! Especially for a drink.
I like my bananas to be really ripe for smoothies. Then there’s no need to add any extra sugar because of its natural sweetness.
Freezing the banana makes for an even more delicious smoothie. It makes it thicker and creamier, almost like a milkshake.
I used plain, unsweetened almond milk for this easy recipe. 8 ounces is only 1 point.
Making the smoothie is as easy as putting the milk, PB2 powdered peanut butter and banana in your blender and then running it until smooth.
Out of all the smoothies I’ve been making, this one is my favorite so far!
It’s perfect for a quick breakfast or healthy dessert.
