PB&J Smoothie

PB&J Smoothie

1 cup almond milk
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 small banana
2 tablespoons peanut butter

Add all ingredients to blender and spin. Yes, it’s that easy.

This is much better cold, but since ice can make things a bit watery, try freezing the banana or strawberries. If you are using a blender, cut them up a bit first. A Vitamix can handle a whole frozen banana (in fact, ever tried banana “ice cream“? OMG!) but most regular blenders can’t. You can also play around with the ratio of ingredients, depending

on your tastes. This makes enough for one smoothie, but doubling is

easy and encouraged — though it’s much better fresh.
