Recipe of the month: Peanut butter smoothie

 

Recipe of the Month:  Peanut butter smoothie!

This isn’t the most original of recipes… BUT! It is kid-approved and a great way to grab breakfast on the go when you’re late for work (guilty!).  Also, there’s a variation here that lets you add coffee, so honestly it’s a win-win in my books.  Obviously I don’t add the coffee in for the kids, but for me?  Yes please!

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Ingredients:
1c. ice cubes
3tbsp peanut butter (I use smooth)
1tsp cocoa powder
1c. almond milk*
1tbsp protein powder (optional)
1 banana
cooled coffee (optional)

Directions:
In a blender, put your ice cubes, peanut butter, cocoa powder, protein powder, banana, and almond milk – if you want to add the coffee in, I would subtract out a 1/4c. of the almond milk and top that up with coffee instead.  Blend and pour into your favourite beachy cup and pretend you’re in Cuba instead of Narnia.

Enjoy!

About this series:  The food series was born out of my love of food – and my desire to share my kid friendly, husband approved recipes with all of you!  If you need the full story, I talk about why I started this series in the first place over here.  Every month in my newsletter, I release a new recipe – that same day, I will make public last month’s recipe here on this blog.  So, even if you’re afraid of another email in your inbox (don’t be, I promise I’m not annoying!) you can have access to a new thing to try.  If you ever give it a whirl, please let me know in the comments how it went for you and your family!  I look forward to sharing this little part of my life with you all!
