Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Happy Thursday fellow peaches!  I hope you enjoyed our little jaunt to Graceland yesterday.  After that  trip, I've decided I must own a pair of blue suede shoes.  Sooner rather than later.

For those of us who resolved to eat healthier in 2012, here's an alternative to the decadent pie I posted earlier in the week.  I nicknamed this smoothie, "The Elvis" and it's so good that I actually made two batches in one day for the boys and I.  We put them away like it was our job.

Talk about being "all shook up!"  Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Serve with a side of bacon if you really want to "take care of business."  Sorry again.  I'll stop now.

Here's the recipe... (adapted from here)
Serves 4

Ingredients:

3 bananas
1/4 ground steel cut oats ( I grind mine in my coffee bean grinder)
1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup milk
dash of cinnamon
1 cup ice

Blend ingredients to a smooth consistency.  Garnish and serve immediately.

  6. That sounds great! I like to add frozen berries and ti taste like a PB&J. A little flax seed thrown in is great too!

  8. Just made this and didn't put in the oats since it was nighttime. It was nice and light, probably would add some berries or cocoa powder next time to get a different flavor. Maybe even substitute the peanut butter with Chocolate PB2 to gt a Chocolate Banana Smoothie.

    Thanks again!
