Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

This was my breakfast today.  I am  trying to keep cool in these hot days of summer here in New Mexico. What better way to keep cool than drinking a nice cool, delicious, and healthy smoothie.

I love smoothies, but I really appreciate them in the summer.  Throw everything in a blender and within a few minutes you have breakfast/lunch/snack/light dinner.  No cooking required.  

This smoothie was made with ice, peanut butter, a ripe banana, some vanilla Greek yogurt, some soy milk, honey, and some Whey protein.   The Whey protein is optional, but my older son had some so I borrowed a scoop.   Was this smoothie  ever good - hard to believe it was good for you.

I shared some with  the kids and they enjoyed it too.  

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
