While a Peanut butter smoothie isn’t going to be the lowest calorie smoothie you have ever had it is one of the most nutritious. Peanut butter offers a lot of monounsaturated fats, resveratrol, protein, and more. This recipe is going to fill you up big time so I recommend enjoying it earlier in the day and not right before bed.

Its also easy to turn this smoothie treat into even more of 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 taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.

In your smoothie blender, mix:

1 cup of milk (soy, 2%, low-fat or whole: your choice)
1 large fresh banana, peeled and sliced (if you freeze the banana, peel and slice it first)
2 Tablespoons of peanut butter
1 tbsp. Chia seed
