Sorry! You should put 1-2 T peanut butter and 4-5 strawberries per taste depending on size. You want to fill the bottom of the blender with strawberries however many that takes. If you use frozen strawberries you will need to thin out the smoothie with a little bit of milk or soy milk. Hope this helps!

I can't believe the rave reviews on this. I love peanut butter. I love strawberries. Bananas are ok too. Mixed together? This was horrific to me. I followed it to the tee even using the NON-FAT PLAIN yogurt. And maybe that was part of the problem. I had to add milk before it would even move through the blender...it was THAT thick. At first try there was an overwhelming "bitter" taste of banana (obviously the yogurt and banana). I nailed the sucker with DOUBLE the strawberries. Even THAT couldn't kill the bitterness. Well I had to resort to sugar. I used to tablespoons (umm..YEA)..and it was just....it killed the bitter taste a bit...made the banana taste worse...and the whole thing was just a disaster. I douched it with more milk so I could at least swallow some of it down to give it a chance...but even that didn't mix it well. I won't make it again but if this is something someone else is giving a shot do yourself a favor....less banana....more strawberries...and by ALL means..NO NON-FAT PLAIN YOGURT!! Do some fatty stuff with VANILLA or something:) Defeats the purpose of "healthy" but at least you may be able to drink it down:) My two cents. Sorry submitter!!!

I liked it and would make it again but I would only put in 1 T peanut butter probably because the peanut butter flavor overwhelmed it. I love peanut butter but in this I think I would prefer a banana or strawberry flavor coming out. I couldn't taste the strawberries at all so I maybe would add a few more of those also. It's definitely worth trying though.

I used frozen strawberries and a frozen banana which eliminated the need for ice cubes. My kids gulped this down this morning. Loved it. I'll make it again for sure.

I have been playing with smoothie recipes to see which one I like and this one is the BEST that I have found so far! Gonna make this more and more! I did add a splash of milk because I used frozen strawberries. But awesome! Thanks for sharing this recipe with all of us!

Definitely a refreshing smoothie to make after a long day's worth of work. I liked the strawberry and peanut butter combination but the banana kind of got lost on me. Maybe I'll add more banana next time. One thing that I am eager to experiment with is maybe to try adding some Nutella in instead of the peanut butter just to see whether chocolate or peanut butter is the better supplement to this excellent smoothie.

Loved it!! I'm 9 months pregnant and a little tired of eating the same things. I' not too strict with my measurements so I probably added a little "extra" of each ingredient. Plus I didn't have plain yogurt so I used "mixed berry" instead. Wow! I'm definitely going to be making this again. Very soon!
