This is my all-time favorite breakfast smoothie. It's also my easiest go-to recipe when I want something different than cereal or oatmeal, and something that really fills me. I usually have all these ingredients on hand, because Michael and I love bananas and buy them pretty much every week at the grocery store. I find that drinking this smoothie in the mornings gives me lots of energy to start my day, especially if a nice long run is on the agenda!
Is anybody else a huge fan of peanut butter and banana sandwiches? I know that I can eat one almost everyday if given the chance. Something about the flavor combo in between two toasty slices of wheat bread, just makes me giddy. So when I don't want to overdo my bread intake, I make this smoothie and it's pretty much awesome.
This is so easy to make; I'm sure you will enjoy it. Are there any other smoothies out there that you like to make for breakfast, or just as a treat? I'm always on the lookout for new recipes and inspiration! Oh, and Happy Wednesday!
Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
1 banana, sliced
2 tbsp. peanut butter
1/4 - 1/2 cup milk
9-10 ice cubes
- Layer half of ice cubes with banana slices, then top with other half of ice cubes.
- Top with peanut butter and pour milk into blender (more or less depending on how thick you like the consistency of your smoothie to be).
- Blend until combined (you might have to pulse the blender a few times, just to get the ice broken up and things moving around).
- Pour into your favorite glass, pop a colorful straw in there, and slurp away!
