This is my favorite smoothie. I may even be why my son Rowan was 10.5 pounds at birth! It is good with frozen bananas or non-frozen (I think it depends on how cold it is outside as to how much I want to risk brain-freeze.) Or if you want a frozen treat and didn't prepare your bananas ahead, some crushed ice will do too.
- 2 bananas, ripe
- 3 tablespoons peanut butter (I use Smucker's Natural creamy)
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1 cup water
- Throw it all in a blender.
- Pour it in a glass (or two, if you want to share) and drink it up.
This recipe produced a thick chocolatety healthy shake which at initial tasting was not sweet enough for our tastes, however it may have been due to the fact that our bananas weren't ripe enough. I ended up adding a 1/4 cup of French vanilla non-dairy creamer to it and that worked great. Made for Veg 'N Swap #18.
What a great breakfast or treat! I made it as directed and enjoyed immensely. Made for Veg*an Swap, January 2010
This has been a family standard at my house for years!! We often use milk instead of water and add protein powder. Then the growing folks drink it, and the low cal minded ones dilute it to taste!
