Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie!

Happy, happy Friday :)

Today I'm skipping out on High Five for Friday
in order to fulfill a request made by you wonderful people!

 I got a lot of questions about the
peanut butter banana smoothie recipe that I talked about in my food journal post.
I did a post on the recipe back when I just started this little blog,
but I've altered the way that I make it since then.

So here is the new & improved peanut butter banana smoothie!

What you'll need:


// Blender 
// 2 tablespoons of peanut butter 
(I use Peter Pan Whipped Creamy)
// 1 frozen banana 
(I cut and freeze a bunch of bananas every week so I can just grab a bag and go)
// 1/2 teaspoon of honey
(I use imitation honey...sugar free!)
// 3/4-1 cup of milk...the more milk, the thinner the consistency of the smoothie
(I use Silk Pure Almond Unsweetened Vanilla)


What you'll do:

You guessed it...toss all of the ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth!
I like to top mine with a teaspoon of fat free or lite cool whip :)


What you'll end up with:


Delicious! This is seriously one of my favorite on the go breakfast or pre-workout drinks.
It's loaded with protein and keeps me full for a good 3 hours. It's also great because when I use it as a pre-workout drink, it gives me energy to power through my workout. 

And you wanna know a secret? Sometimes I even drink it when I just want a little treat. 
It's THAT good.

Enjoy :)

And don't forget to enter my giveaway!

  1. Am I weird that I got excited and crit totally include when I saw the Silk unsweetened almond milk? I use it for almost everything! Well, unless a recipe needs milk, or actually tastes better with soy ... I love seeing smoothies pop up on my reader, and this is a great one! Never thought about adding honey for some reason. Thanks for sharing!
