ppeanut butter banana smoothie

Sometimes, two very dissimilar flavors mix together so well the combination is exceptionally special. That’s the case with this Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie. It is a quick and simple treat that you will enjoy many times.

Its also easy to turn this tasty smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a noticeable taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.

In your favorite blender mix:

-1 frozen ripe banana, peeled and sliced (TIP: peel and slice BEFORE FREEZING)
-1 1/2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
– 1 tablespoon honey
– ½ to 1 cup of cold milk

You don’t really need to use a frozen banana but if you do your smoothie will be colder. Living in the south the temperature of a drink is always something we pay attention to!
