Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

My dear readers. I am lucky to be born in a place where bananas are in abundance and available for very cheap prices. I am a big fan of bananas for their numerous health benefits. I even blogged it's numerous benefits and a strong believer in the saying that having a banana a day keeps the doctor away.

Bananas are very useful in smoothies. Whenever I throw in a banana, I automatically omit cream from my smoothie as bananas help thicken it. Therefore, by using bananas, I actually cut down the fat content plus taking in the health benefits of the banana.

Today I'll post one favourite of mine. Technically, adding peanut butter increases the fat content but hey, I didn't add ANY cream. Thank you banana! Here you go. Simply EASY to make.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 banana (2 small bananas)
  • 1/8 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup soy milk (or low fat milk)
  • 2 tablespoons honey

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a blender, combine banana, peanut butter and soy milk. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and drizzle with honey for garnish.
Big tip: If you want cooler smoothies. Cut your bananas into chunks and freeze them in the freezer for 45 minutes before hand. This will result in a cooling smoothie. Frozen Fruit Power!!
