banana + peanut butter smoothie
Behold, my default breakfast. :)
Simple. Delicious. Classic. Healthy. Fresh. Thick. Perfectly, but not overly sweet. Packed with energy and fun nutrients. Made with ingredients I almost always have on hand. Ready to go in about 90.4298 seconds.
Even in the prime of fresh berry season, there are days when you must return to a classic…and go bananas!
1/2 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup milk (soy, regular, almond, etc.)
1 1/2 cups ice cubes
1 Tbsp. natural peanut butter
1 tsp. ground flax seed and/or wheat germ (optional)
In a blender, combine all ingredients. Blend until smooth, and serve immediately.
To give this some extra chill, try using frozen bananas! :) Often if I bring home more than I can use (before they ripen), I’ll go ahead and peel them, cut them into somewhat small pieces, and pop them in a bag and into the freezer. They’re definitely great to have onhand!
