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!

  2. My friend Amy recommend your website, and I am HOOKED on this smoothie! I make 1/2 the recipe every single morning, and I feel like I'm having a milkshake. I drink it, then dream about having another one all day long! Thank you for a healthy, delicious treat!
