Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie “Milkshakes”

Banana peanut butter smoothie “milkshakes” are a staple in our house.  They’re full of protein with yogurt and peanut butter, have no added sugar thanks to the magical sweetness of a banana, and my kids think they’re drinking a milkshake. It’s the recipe I go to when I feel like something indulgent but want to go the healthy route or when I need a quick, easy breakfast on the go. This week, as our fridge was nearly empty, I still had everything on hand to whip these up for breakfast. And, maybe more importantly, my kids weren’t hungry 5 minutes later.

I usually make mine with unsweetened almond milk, but you can choose any milk you like and have on hand. This homemade cashew milk would be delicious. 

My preference is to start with a fresh banana and add a bunch of ice to make it really cold, especially in the summer, but a frozen banana also works great.

I bet you can pass this one off as a milkshake too!
