After being on vacation for a week, it felt great to get back into my normal routine. My morning started at the gym where I ran/walked 2 miles. Then I came home to make this delicious and much needed purple protein smoothie. A few of my other favorite protein packed smoothies are Superfood PB Banana and Cacao Green SmoothieStrawberry Peanut Butter Swirl Smoothie Bowl, and PB and J Smoothie.

PB2, if you’re not familiar, is a roasted peanut powder, made with just roasted peanuts, salt and sugar. No artificial ingredients, it’s non-GMO, and 2 tablespoons contains just 1.5 g of fat so it’s a perfect way to enjoy peanut butter, without the added fat. To make it into peanut butter, you simply add a little water.

Personally,  I love adding it to my smoothies but when I have a sandwich, I stick with the real thing. If you want to use regular peanut butter here, 1/2 tablespoon is the equivalent to maintain the same calories and weight watcher points.

Weight Watchers Note: I added the fruit in recipe builder, but I will leave it up to you if you want to count the fruit or keep it 0 points. Since I couldn’t get a clear answer, and some Smoothie recipes on the Weight Watcher website include the fruit, while other recipes do not, I decided to count them.

  1. I love this smoothie recipe. I have made it many times following the recipe exactly. Today I added a half cup of kale (approx additional 17 calories) and it was still delicious. Changed the color a bit but not the taste.

  2. Can you use an immersion blender instead of regular blender?

  3. This smoothie is one of the best I have ever tried. Will definitely be doing this one again. 

  4. Just as an FYI, WW does indeed count fruit points when making smoothies or shakes. There us even a box to check on the recipe builder that says “this is a drink” so it knows to change point value. My recipe builder calculated 9 points for green plan. A little more than I like to use for breakfast but it is very tasty!

  5. Delish! Great for after a hot run this morning. When I entered it into the recipe maker on WW it came out as 1 point (blue)….just wondering why my calculation is different from your calculation. I am new to WW and want to get it right! Any insight?

    • Hi Stephanie! The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”) which does not count fruits and vegetables in recipes in the calculations as they are now 0 points.

      The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting the fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, now you know why.

  6. We loved this shake. It took away from me the desire to have something sweet. It was perfect and very thick. I used frozen blueberries and bananas and skipped the ice.

  7. How come the posting says it’s Freestyle: 5pts, but when I enter the nutritional info into the WW Calculator I get 10 pts?? I’d love to make it but for 5pts, not 10pts…

  8. This is a great tasting smoothie! My 7 year old daughter is very picky and loves this. Only modification I made is that I use unsweetened vanilla coconut milk. Fantastic for breakfast or a snack!

  9. I chose not to count the fruit. On freestyle, this is now only 2 points. I’m thinking about leaving out the PB2, leaving me with a 1 point smoothie. Yum!

  10. How many points is this without the yogurt?

  11. Yikes! Ignore my last comment. I missed a Check mark box that asks if this is a drink. Since it's a drink, it automatically bumps it up to 9SP! Whoa!

  12. Recipe builder says only 2 smart points! Oh yeah!

  13. Hi Gina! Can you please update this one to SP?! I drink one every week. LOVE IT! LOVE IT! Thank you!

  14. Made this today. Yum! My blueberries were a little sour (yuck) so I added a little honey to sweeten it up.

  15. I never count points for fruit or veggies. It seems to be the one major flaw in the Weight Watchers system. It doesn't make sense that fruits and veggies are zero points if you simply consume them as part of a meal, yet somehow they suddenly have points values if they're part of a recipe. Either they're zero or they're not. I'm sticking with zero points, which has been working for me weight-loss wise. In that case, the smoothie would only be 2 points (1 point for the yogurt, 1 point for the PB2, and 0 points for the almond milk). Maybe round up to 3 points just to be conservative. But 7 really seems like overkill, even though I understand that's what the WW Recipe Builder says.

  16. This is DELICIOUS! I used regular peanut butter cause that's what I had, and I only used 1/2 Tb and it was just so yummy. I will be making this again tomorrow for breakfast, for sure. Thanks for the idea!

  17. Tried this today and it was super yummy. New favorite!!!

  18. My daughter is allergic to tree nuts, what can I use to substitute for the almond milk?

  19. Purple is my favorite colour , I have to try this.
