1/1 Photo of Peanut Butter Banana Protein Smoothie
I just started back to the gym after having my second child two months ago and was experimenting to find a smoothie high in protein and low in sugar to augment my workouts. I have this almost daily! It tastes like a decadent milk shake, and yet it is actually good for you. The real trick is to use previously sliced and frozen bananas. I buy bananas by the armload and then when they start to get riper than what I would want for eating, I peel and slice and put in Ziploc freezer bags. Then they can be used in almost any recipe asking for fresh ripe bananas.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Break apart banana slices as well as you can, by using a butter knife or pounding them on counter.
- 2It is not necessary to have all pieces separated, depending on the power of you blender (my Oster has no problem with this).
- 3Put all ingredients in blender.
- 4Start on low chop or grind setting, as if trying to blend ice.
- 5When all of the banana slices have been blended and are no longer visible, blend for 30 seconds on blend mode.
- 6Serve immediately.
