Peanut Butter + Banana Smoothie

This is one of my absolute favorite things in the whole world, and it is so simple to make. Plus, it's a great way to use up those bananas that have gone a little dark. Just peel them and throw them into a food storage container and place them in the freezer. They'll be ready next time you want this good-for-you frozen treat.

The ripe bananas have plenty of natural sweetness, and the peanuts are a great source of protein. The texture of the blended frozen bananas is a lot like an ice cream milkshake, so enjoy! It can be your breakfast in a cup or the perfect thing to cool down after a run when, like me, you're just trying to stay on the cute side of chubby.

Peanut Butter + Banana Smoothie

3 frozen bananas
1/4 cup peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
1 1/2 cups soy milk (or milk)
1/2 cup 2% greek yogurt
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chopped roasted peanuts

Throw a few frozen bananas into a blender cup along with the peanut butter, soy milk, yogurt, honey, and salt. No need to be to fussy about it. Blend until smooth. Top each with a teaspoon of chopped peanuts and maybe include a paper straw.

That is extremely weird, but yesterday I had exactly that for my snack. I never make smoothies but I had a banana I wanted to do something with! Until you make this recipe, you don't quite get how delicious this smoothie is!
Hahaa, such an odd comment, sorry :)

Yum... I make something similar to this almost every day. So delicious. :)

I wanted to ask, is there any way your blog is sorted into different types of recipes? IE dessert, breakfast, etc.
