Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

image

In an effort to get more nutrition from my breakfast and go beyond my normal granola bar, I found this peanut butter banana smoothie idea from an Ellie Krieger’s cookbook.  I’m not normally a smoothie person, but I have to say I LOVE this one!  It’s so easy and quick, and it’s a very nutritious way to start my day! I also wait until I’m about ready to leave the house to run the blender, which serves as a good wake-up call for my kiddos. 🙂

Ingredients:

1 banana, cut in slices and frozen
1/2 cup lowfat yogurt (I use vanilla)
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon peanut butter

Blend, and done!

This smoothie gets me a good amount of potassium, fiber, and calcium.

I bet Elvis would have loved it!

  1. Mix it up by using strawberries, bananas, skim milk and ice, or reduced fat peanut butter, bananas and yogurt, or 2 tbsps of cheesecake fat free sugar free pudding mix and strawberries, milk and ice for strawberry cheesecake. I am on the body by vi shake diet and have lost 7 pounds! Woohoo!!
