In my last post, I mentioned one of my food goals was to find an easy and delicious smoothie recipe. My thanks goes out to those who commented with recommendations.
The first one I tried was recommended by Marli, a friend of mine who is working in film and production. It is a great way to use up bananas before they go bad.
Ingredients (makes two 12-oz. smoothies)
- 1 banana (riper is better)
- 3 big spoonfuls of creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup milk
- 3 ice cubes
- Combine ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Be sure all ice cubes have been chopped.
I used a banana whose skin was almost completely covered by brown spots, indicating its sweetness. This made it easier to taste the banana flavor in the smoothie, instead of being overpowered by peanut butter. (Thanks again, Marli, for the recommendation!)
