Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie

I started buying fresh fruits and vegetables in bulk.  I have found that when I keep plenty in the house, we are better about eating more.  At the same time, I don't want fresh produce to go bad before we can eat it.  The solution to my problem?  Smoothies!  I tried this recipe for banana peanut butter smoothie over the weekend and it was a hit with the family.  Since I didn't come up with the recipe, I am going to just link to it.  I plan to come up with my own creative combinations soon!

2 T creamy peanut butter

Blend all ingredients until smooth.

Dairy-free Suggestion:  Replace the non-fat milk with soy milk (or other non-dairy substitute) and the yogurt for of crushed ice (1 c ice per serving).

  1. I haven't actually tried the dairy-free suggestion. If anyone tries, it let me know how you like it before I label it as dairy-free. Thanks!
