In an effort to get more nutrition from my breakfast and go beyond my normal granola bar, I found this peanut butter banana smoothie idea from an Ellie Krieger’s cookbook. I’m not normally a smoothie person, but I have to say I LOVE this one! It’s so easy and quick, and it’s a very nutritious way to start my day! I also wait until I’m about ready to leave the house to run the blender, which serves as a good wake-up call for my kiddos. 🙂
1 banana, cut in slices and frozen
1/2 cup lowfat yogurt (I use vanilla)
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon peanut butter
Blend, and done!
This smoothie gets me a good amount of potassium, fiber, and calcium.
I bet Elvis would have loved it!
