Peanut Butter Banana Protein Smoothie

Peanut Butter Banana Protein Smoothie created by DogAndCatDoc

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.

ingredients

directions

  • Break apart banana slices as well as you can, by using a butter knife or pounding them on counter.
  • It is not necessary to have all pieces separated, depending on the power of you blender (my Oster has no problem with this).
  • Put all ingredients in blender.
  • Start on low chop or grind setting, as if trying to blend ice.
  • When all of the banana slices have been blended and are no longer visible, blend for 30 seconds on blend mode.
  • Serve immediately.

    Best protein smoothie I have had yet! Used almond milk instead of normal milk because it contrasts really nicely with peanut butter, recommend using almond milk for anyone who likes nuts!

    Wonderful base recipe. I'm not a fan of artificial sweeteners, so I swapped the spenda for about 2 tsp honey. Amazing!!

    I might have put to little milk in and too much peanut butter so it came out really thick but it was delicious! I also added a little vanilla fro-yo which was good. Great recipe, thanks!
