Ok, so this picture is nothing special, but let me tell you, this smoothie is GOOD. I just arrived home after picking up the kids from their respective sports practices and I wanted to make them something fast and somewhat healthy. I just started making these smoothies and everyone LOVES them. I got the basic recipe from my fabulous sister, Veronica (fellow foodie and more more of a health nut than I am…). I might have changed it a bit from her original, but I think many variants would still be good. Here's how to whip one up…
1-1/2 frozen bananas1 heaping tsp. of peanut butter
1 flat tbsp. protein powder (I used vanilla)
1/2 cup plain, nonfat yogurt
1/2 cup milk
5 ice cubes
2 heaping tsp. Nesquick
I put the ingredients in my blender in that order and pulsed until smooth. This makes about two 8 oz. glasses. In the future I may substitute Hershey's cocoa for the Nesquick to cut down on the sugar...
Yum. I whipped up two batches and they are both completely GONE already. In fact, the second batch was almost all gone when I took this picture. Enjoy!
