The Nutty Nana Smoothie

This was probably one of my favorites that I made over the past week! I just love that combo of peanut butter and banana with a little honey thrown in...a lot of times I will just slice a banana and dip in honey roasted peanut butter for breakfast or a great afternoon snack. This shake is full of potassium, fiber, protein, and calcium!

  • 1 Cup Almond Milk
  • 1T peanut butter (I used crunchy)
  • 1tsp Honey (I hear that using local honey can help prevent seasonal allergies...who knew?!)
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • 1T flaxseed
As you can see from what I've been base has been some type of milk to give me calcium and vitamin D (almond, cow milk, soy milk, etc can all be used), protein powder and flax to add some staying power (fiber and protein really help to fill you up and keep you satisfied), and a fruit and/or veggie to pump up the flavor and give you vitamins that you need to keep your body in top shape. Play around with your ingredients to see what delicious combos you can come up with! Add yogurt, different spices (cinnamon, coco powder?), play around with your fruits (and veggies!!), and let me know what you come up with!
