Can you freeze smoothies?
Do I have to Make This a Greek Yogurt Smoothie
Can I leave the banana out of this peanut butter smoothie?
If you are making this peanut butter smoothie, and you either do not have bananas on hand or do not like the taste of the bananas, you can keep the banana out. By omitting the banana, however, the smoothie will not be as thick. If the smoothie needs to be thicker, you can thicken it by adding more fruit or you can blend ice into the smoothie. If you want the smoothie thinner, you can just leave it the way it is.
Ingredients for chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie

How to make a chocolate peanut butter smoothie
Combine bananas, milk, yogurt, peanut butter, cocoa powder, and vanilla in a large blender or food processor.
Blend/process until smooth.
Serve cold, immediately.
To make the smoothie bowl thick, more like soft-serve ice cream consistency and easier to eat with a spoon, be sure to freeze the yogurt, as well.
