How to Make A Peanut Paradise Smoothie
If you are thinking of peanut paradise as some super complex recipe to make, then that not the case. Its rich and healthy blend may make us fall for the claim, but the recipe is far simple than any of our imaginations. At least, that’s how my experience was when I first heard about the recipe.
I always assumed it to be some exotic smoothie recipe which is available in certain places. But that bubble popped up when I actually tried the recipe by myself. It was difficult to predict that such basic ingredients can make such an amazing blend.
Tropical smoothie peanut paradise ingredients include peanut butter, milk, banana and flax meal. In most of the other recipes discussed here, there is always some additional ingredients added to make the smoothie more delicious and sometimes more nutritious.
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 tablespoon fresh ground peanut butter
- 1/3 cup nondairy milk
- 1/3 cup yogurt
- 1 tablespoon flax meal
Take a food processor and a blender to make this smoothie. Add the banana, peanut butter, non-dairy milk, yogurt, and flax meal to the blender. Keep the consistency of the smoothie as you desire. It is normally kept thick enough to be eaten with spoons. Personally speaking, I always love to throw in some chocolate chips on top, to give it a nice texture, flavor and garnish.
The smoothie has to be served fresh and chilled. So, I normally keep the blender jug in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours before serving. Once it is chilled well, you can transfer it to the serving glass and then garnish with chocolate chips, whipped cream or as desired. Enjoy
Make the most out of a Paradise smoothie
Though peanut paradise tropical is a perfect morning smoothie and people enjoy a glass of it every now and then, there are several other ways to make the most of this delightful beverage. Likewise, I take a full glass of peanut paradise protein mixed a smoothie in between my breakfast and lunch to quench my energy needs.
It is not always necessary to have a smoothie in a conventional way; you can also make other meals out of a single smoothie. Due to its rich content, everyone wants to have peanut paradise all the time. So here are some of the creative ways to incorporate it into your menu other than just as a drink.
1. Smoothie Bowl: My family loves this smoothie bowl. It is best to serve in the morning. I put the smoothie in the refrigerator overnight and then scoop it out into a serving bowl. To serve it, I top the smoothie with some toasted seeds, sunflower or flaxseed. You can choose any fruit of your choice. I prefer kiwi or figs, banana, and sometimes berries!
Cut the fruits into thin slices and gently place them over the smoothie. It looks so appealing, and the smoothie becomes double the times healthier. If you have soft sponge cake slices or biscuit sticks etc., you can also use them to serve the smoothie bowl.
2. Chilled Smoothie ice cream: Making an ice cream out of a smoothie is my favorite thing to do. I love the taste of the chilled and creamy smoothie. For this, you don’t need to churn the smoothie mixture or spend time checking the texture of the ice cream, as it is not ice cream in traditional.
Just put the smoothie in the freezer for few hours until it starts freezing a bit. Once it is hard enough to serve as ice cream, take it out and scoop the smoothie into ice cream bowls. Drizzle some maple syrup or honey on top for great taste. to make it more attractive for the kids, fold chocolate chips into the smoothie before freezing and then place It in the freezer. Children just love this combination.
3. Use in a Parfait: To make a parfait out of this smoothie, you can layer it in the serving cups with your favorite nuts and fruits. It is usually best to add more yogurt and add cream at times to make this smoothie thicker in consistency.
Whenever I make a parfait using this smoothie, I choose peanut butter, yogurt, some wheat biscuits, banana slices and some pecans for layering. I first add a layer of smoothie to the bottom of the glass then top It with a bit of peanut butter, then some sweetened yogurt, soften biscuits then balance slices and another layer of smoothie on top. In the end, I garnish the serving glass with crushed pecans. Then refrigerate the parfait for 1 hour at least before serving.
4. Dessert topping: You can use this smoothie even as a creamy topping for most of your desserts. Whether it’s a Creme Brulee, custard trifle, cakes, fat bombs or dessert bars, a drizzle of this smoothie will infuse a mildly sweet banana flavor and peanut butter flavor into each of your desserts.
Make sure to only use this smoothie to top those desserts which could complement the distinct banana taste of the paradise smoothie. Avoid adding too much of the smoothie, as it can mask the actual taste of the dessert. It is just used to enhance the original flavors of the dessert.
5. Summer Popsicles: Being a refreshing tropical smoothie, peanut paradise can also be used to make a nice summer popsicle for your kids. The combination of peanuts with yogurt and banana make these popsicles so creamy, smooth and nutritious.
Take a popsicle mold of any size and shape. Pour in the freshly blended paradise smoothie to the molds and arrange an ice cream stick in it. Allow freezing for 3 to 4 hours at least. Once the smoothie is frozen, remove each popsicle from the mold and dip the top of each in coconut shreds.
The dipping part is my own creation, and I enjoy an extra crunch on my popsicles. You can use colorful sprinkles instead, or chocolate shavings, chocolate chips, and even crushed peanuts, almonds or pecans. Make every popsicle different by changing the toppings. Make them colorful to make them more appealing for the kids.
