More Smoothies ... Breakfast on the Go!

Not enough time for breakfast? Well this smoothie delight takes less than 5 minutes to make. Once you're done, just pour into your thermal cup and drink on your way out the door. Skip the coffee and enjoy the most important meal of the day with a nutritious, satisfying treat! For more healthy smoothie recipes, check the links below.

PEANUT BUTTER BANANA SOY SMOOTHIE

Ingredients (for one Serving):
1 cup soy milk (plain or vanilla)
1 medium banana - quartered
1 tablespoon peanut butter
3 ice cubes

Instructions:
Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth.

HEALTH BENEFITS:
*Peanut butter and soy milk are great sources of protein. Many soy milks (like the Silk brand) also contain just as much calcium and vitamin D as cow's milk, with the added benefit of omega-3 and antioxidants.
*Bananas are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and manganese.
*The amount of nutrients in your peanut butter and soy milk varies brand to brand. I purchase Silk Soy Milk and Natural Jiff Peanut Butter for a combined nutritional value of 14g of protein, 4g of dietary fiber, etc.

  2. Hmmm, I've never had peanut butter and banana together, although I've heard of people heaving that combination. Does this smoothie ultimately taste more like banana or more like peanut butter? I think I may try this one.

  3. The one I made tasted more like banana. I can't remember the exact recipe I followed, but it was slightly different from this one.
