|This is what I look like after too many late nites on Pinterest.com...|
Anyway, I tried this smoothie the other nite after a workout and it hit the spot! I, of course, used Almond Milk (vanilla) instead of real milk to make it vegan. And you could probably add some vanilla protein powder for an extra protein kick, although the peanut butter has good protein.
Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie
- 2 frozen & sliced bananas (Tip: slice the bananas before putting them in the freezer, then take the bananas out about 1/2 hour before you want to make the smoothie to let them thaw. Otherwise, even the VitaMix will have a hard time blending them up)
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup ground oats (Tip: Unless you have a high-powered blender like the VitaMix, grind up the oats in a coffee grinder first)
- 3/4 cup milk, almond milk, or rice milk
- Blend all ingredients together and voila!
