It's National Peanut Butter Day!

 We celebrated with Peanut Butter - Banana smoothies and peanut butter-filled pretzels!

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie Recipe
Makes two large smoothies. Don't forget the straw!

blend together:
(in blender or using hand blender and milkshake cup...make sure the liquid is at the bottom for easiest blending)

a splash of milk or almond milk
3-4 giant globs of greek yogurt, or more
2 heaping Tbsp peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
1 big squirt of honey
2 bananas, peeled (they can be frozen if your blender can handle it)
a few ice cubes (can be optional)
optional: a little bit of runny vanilla yogurt
optional: a handful of fresh or frozen organic spinach, rinsed and squeezed dry
optional: cinnamon


  1. Yummy! This sounds so delicious...nice treat on days like these!

  2. The Greek yogurt is the trick; you get crazy proteins! Yum!
