Hi guys! Happy Wednesday to you all! I hope your day is off to a good start. I’ve got my eyes set on a fun weekend trip so that is keeping me going! I took an early morning body pump class followed by a long (cold) walk with 3 sweet pups so I am feeling great! I am off to a physical therapy appointment to work on my back/neck/shoulder pain and hoping it helps.
You all know by now how much I love smoothies. In fact, I start almost every day with a big smoothie. My morning smoothies are usually fruit based as fruit is best digested on an empty stomach. As much as I love my daily morning smoothie, I’m not much of a smoothie as a snack person. But every once in a while, I’ll get a hankering for a smoothie later in the day (or as a dessert) especially when the hot summer weather rolls around.
One of my favorite flavor combinations is banana and peanut butter. I mean really, what is better? The only thing better is both in a smoothie. That is where today’s smoothie inspiration came from.
Peanut butter banana smoothie.
Ingredients: 1-2 bananas (frozen or not will work), 1-2 tablespoons peanut butter (almond butter will work), 1 cup ice (more or less depending on if you used a frozen banana), 1 cup almond milk (I use unsweetened vanilla), and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
Put it in the blender….
This smoothie is really versatile. You can add spinach to increase the nutrients, coconut milk for a different taste, vanilla or chocolate protein powder for more protein, or vanilla extra for more flavor.
This smoothie is so tasty and refreshing on a hot summer day (or after a sweaty workout). Serve it up in a glass!
Or in a bowl topped with more peanut butter!
I promise it won’t disappoint!
