Peana Banada - peanut butter and banana smoothie


Serving: 2 small / 1 large glass

Smoothie ingredients

3 tbsp Peanut Butter (OR 3 tbsp peanuts and 2 tspn palm / olive oil)
1 large / 2 small bananas
200ml cows milk or 200ml Rice milk
200ml Natural Live yoghurt

Overview

This is one of the simplest, most tasty and popular smoothie recipes around and uses the tried and tested combination of peanut butter and banana (reported to be Elvis' favourite sandwich filling). You can make your own peanut butter if you want (if you can get hold of raw peanuts then do so as they have a better nutritional content than roasted peanuts).

Peanut butter is not just for sandwiches, in fact it tastes great with a number of different healthy foods including banana, celery and apples. It is commonly used as a 'dip' for crudite.

This smoothie recipe contains good amounts of protein which is found in the yoghurt, peanuts and cows milk. Protein is essential for growth and repair of the bodies tissues. Bananas are a good source of potassium, calcium and phosphorus which help to convert energy into a useable form. The live yoghurt helps digestion and contains good bacteria that will colonise the gut wall and help protect against stomach bugs.

There is no fruit juice in this peanut butter smoothie recipe as juice doesn't tend to mix well with peanut butter.

Directions

Peel and slice the banana. Blend the Rice Milk with the bananas until smooth then add the yoghurt and Peanut butter (or peanuts and oil) until the peanut butter is well blended and the thickness is to your taste (add ice to thicken the smoothie up).
