Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

This simple smoothie recipe is rich, creamy and kid-friendly. My 11-year old daughter created it and if you make it on the thicker side, it tastes just like soft-serve ice cream.

Notes

  • You can use any type of protein powder you like.  Personally, I enjoy the flavor and texture of whey protein powder.  This is a brand I really enjoy.
  • Peanut butter powder is essentially dehydrated peanuts that are ground into a powder.  It is low fat and high protein, so it's a fun way to add flavor and protein to your smoothies.  If you don't have any, simply sub in 1-2 tablespoons of all-natural peanut butter.
  • If you want to add a nutritional boost to your smoothie,  toss in a big handful of baby spinach.  You won't even taste it!
