PB Banana Smoothie


I found this great recipe on Allrecipes.com for a peanut butter banana smoothie.  I was really impressed with the great flavor even though it only uses a few basic ingredients.

My one year old just loved it and that's saying a lot considering he is not a fan of cold beverages. 

I did adjust the recipe slightly...  

I used almond milk instead of soy, because that's what my son drinks.  I also reduced the honey to 1/2 - 1 teaspoon as it was already pretty sweet without the honey.  

The key to making this  smoothie ice cold and frothy, is to use frozen bananas.

I chop and freeze overly ripe bananas to keep a supply of frozen bananas on hand for smoothies, milkshakes and baking. 


Here's my version of this recipe with the serving size doubled to serve two.

(Garnish with chocolate syrup for an extra yummy treat!)
