peanut butter banana smoothie



I'm having one of those months.  Sometimes I feel like no matter how fast I run I'm never going to get caught up.  I haven't come up for air for awhile which is why I haven't blogged in a bit either.  

I'm really grateful for my blog though.  Because it's kind of forced me to take stock of the small things, the small accomplishments that we normally forget.  But they're not small, they're important, because they keep us connected to the people and the activities we love.

This banana peanut butter smoothie for instance.  Mr. A came up with this recipe and made some for us last week.  It was a moment in time that made us both happy because it tasted great and we made it together (well, he made them and I mostly fretted about cleaning up.) :)




Here's the recipe!

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
makes 2 large glasses

Ingredients:
-2 frozen ripe bananas
-1 cup of all-natural peanut butter
-1 cup of milk (or more depending on how thick or runny you like your smoothie)

Directions:
Peel the bananas (a trick to peel frozen bananas more easily is to run it under hot water for 30seconds before you attempt to peel them).  Combine the bananas, peanut butter and milk in a blender and pulse for about 1 minute until the bananas are completely smooth.

Pour into a glasses and enjoy!
