Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie


This smoothie is a great post-workout recovery drink or back-to-school breakfast.  I like to use frozen bananas because it gives the smoothie a milkshake-like consistency.  I am a little picky when it comes to bananas.  I don't like them too green or too brown.  When my bananas are at their ideal ripeness for my taste, I cut them up and toss them into a freezer bag or container.  That way I always have ripe bananas on hand for smoothies.   If you don't have bananas in your freezer you can use the ones on your counter, just throw in a handful of ice.
In a blender place 1 cup of your favorite plain yogurt; whole milk, non-fat,
goats milk, greek, soy, whatever your preference.
Add 2 frozen banans, 3 Tablespoons of all natural peanut butter,
1-2 teaspoons of honey and 1/2 cup of almond, soy or cows milk.
For extra nutrients you can add wheat germ or ground flax.
Blend well and serve.  Enjoy!
