This smoothie is great as a quick breakfast, part of lunch, or as a snack. It provides energy-boosting carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats, and lots of potassium!
Banana-Peanut Butter Smoothie
Preparation: You will need solidly frozen banana chunks for this recipe. Wait until your bananas are very ripe (showing brown spots) before peeling.
Then cut them into chunks and store them in the freezer in a freezer bag.
In a blender, combine
1 heaping handful of frozen banana chunks
1-2 Tbsp. peanut butter (unsweetened)
milk (almond or soy are good too) enough to cover 2/3 of the banana chunks
Blend on high until banana chunks are smooth. Enjoy!
Add 1-2 Tbsp. ground flax seeds for an extra nutrition boost! (seal tightly and store in the fridge after opening)
Sometimes I also eat a hard-boiled egg (or just the whites) for extra protein.
