Frozen Banana Smoothie

GBGF Frozen Banana Smoothie 6

Hello friends.

Now here is a tasty afternoon treat. Or a satisfying breakfast, depending on how you look at it.

If you have a banana that is beginning to brown, you can always go the baking route and whip up a batch of banana bread. And I still believe that is a great option. But now I urge to consider another option: this smoothie.

Why? Because blended frozen bananas need to be a larger part of everyone’s lives. Also, there is peanut butter is this. What is life, if not a long game of figuring out how to sneak peanut butter into as many recipes and snacks as possible?

Take a a frozen banana, unpeel it, stick in a ziplock bag, and freeze it. I would also recommend breaking it apart into two or three pieces before freezing it. That way, it will not only fit in a ziplock bag better, but it will also fit in your food processor/blender better. This can easily be done at night time to prepare for a morning smoothie.

In the morning, stick the banana in the food processor.

Add a couple tablespoons of peanut butter and some almond milk. I probably used about 3 heaping tablespoons because I am a big fan of peanut butter (understatement). I used about 1/4 c. almond milk. You can also vary that amount, depending on the consistency that you like your smoothie.
