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 bananas. And peanut butter.
Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
Recipe makes one smoothie
- 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)
- Put everything in the blender (or Magic Bullet).
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?
