Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

You know what?  I’ve never really hopped on the smoothie bandwagon before.  They’re everywhere too — I see them in so many other healthy living blogs.  I don’t know why I never was into them — maybe getting the blender out (and having to wash it) seemed like too much effort for a drink I’d slug down in about 2.5 seconds?  I don’t know, but over my vacation week I realized that all this time I’ve been missing out.

Here’s one of my fave smoothies that I’ve been whipping up lately.  Because as you know, I’m a sucker for anything with .  And peanut butter.

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Recipe makes one smoothie

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 2 ice cubes
  • 1 medium-sized banana, broken into a few pieces
  • 1 spoonful of peanut butter (I prefer Teddie’s unsalted smooth!)
  • About 2 tsp. agave (or honey/syrup/sweetener of choice)
  • 1/2 tbsp. chia or flax seeds (optional)

Directions

  1. Put everything in the blender (or Magic Bullet).
  2. Blend!

Voila, you’re done.  🙂

Um, super easy.  And I love the combo of peanut butter and banana, so this concoction is a winner.  If you want it a little thicker (that’s what she said?) you can try adding a scoop of plain Greek yogurt into the mix.

Great for a post workout snack, a grab n go breakfast, and do it yourself is much more wallet friendly than splurging at the local coffee shop or smoothie joint.

Anyone on a smoothie kick?  What’s your favorite smoothie flavor?  Any good “That’s What She Said” lines?  😉
