Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

 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

  1. Layer half of ice cubes with banana slices, then top with other half of ice cubes.
  2. 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). 
  3. Blend until combined (you might have to pulse the blender a few times, just to get the ice broken up and things moving around).
  4. Pour into your favorite glass, pop a colorful straw in there, and slurp away!

    I am most definitely going to try this smoothie recipe... and soon. I feel that way about basically all of the recipes you share. They always make me salivate.

    So, in response to your question about the sing-a-long, I believe I did You are my Sunshine as an opener, the Wigglin' Blues for some movement, Tarzan of the Apes for songwriting, random songs they chose to sing, and then Happy Trails for a closer. It was like a mini session. It was fun.
