Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie

This Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie is something from my first job!

Jump to Recipe

Okay, I have had this recipe for a long time and now I am going to share it with you all.  My first job was at a smoothie place in my hometown in Florida.  I was originally hired to dress in a banana suit, stand on the side of US 1 (for my New England Friends that is Route 1) and dance while holding a sign to bring potential customers into the store.  I was 14 years old and was so happy to have a job! My first day on the job I was trained to make smoothies and wraps.  I have carried my training throughout my career, especially when other chefs couldn’t make wraps! I smile every time when I think about this 🙂

Check out my new video for this smoothie

Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie made with Cocoa powder, bananas, peanut butter, vanilla, honey, water or your favorite liquid, and ice blended until smooth

I worked there for about 6-9 months and then my sister came on board.  We created this smoothie and it is awesome!! The owner liked it so much he put it on the menu and it was called the “OH Mama!”  Till this day it is still on the menu, but the name has been changed to the “Peanut Butter Cup”

 Cocoa powder, bananas, peanut butter, vanilla, honey, water or your favorite liquid, and ice blended until smooth and you have a Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie.

    I work next to a Tropical Smoothie and everyday I would get the peanut butter cup smoothie. Eventually it ended up adding up, as well as waiting long waits so I decided to see if I could find a recipe. Sure enough I tried this one and let me just say it was perfect!!!! I’m so in love with it. Thank you so much!

  2. Hello. I just made this an it doesn’t taste quite right and I’m trying to figure out what I should try different. Did you use a specific brand of coco powder? Also I used powdered peanut butter bc it always seems like the peanut butter freezes when I use regular creamy peanut butter. I think I should try regular peanut butter again though. That’s what you used right?

    1. No, I have used different brands of cocoa powders. I use regular creamy peanut butter just like Tropical Smoothie. If you need more sweetness feel free to add turbinado sugar up to 1/4 cup or more honey, but it depends on the ripeness of your bananas. In the old days of Tropical Smoothie we used both honey and the sugar, but now that I am older I felt that it was way too sweet. Thanks for stopping by.

    This is perfect. Who knew it could be so simple. Next time, I’m adding at least 1 peanut butter cup; just to see if it adds more flavor.

  4. Just came across the site and recipe today. My daughter will be 14 in a couple of weeks and this is her favorite smoothie / place. I can’t wait to share the recipe and story with her. So awesome.

    Aww thank you for writing about your first job! The name of the smoothie should have remained as the “OH Mama!”
