Greek Yogurt Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

peanut butter banana smoothie

I use the Bella Cucina Rocket Blender to make my smoothies.

Last but not least, actually the first thing I did this season was use up any remaining frozen bananas I had in the freezer. I really only get bananas for bout days, and bring the whole bunch to the locker room, and if there's any left I bring them home, break them up, and freeze them, one banana per container. Otherwise, I don't keep them in the house. Because fruit flies, and because I'm a princess about bananas and there's only like a twenty minute window where I will eat a fresh banana. Banana also doesn't need sweetener.

frozen banana
four big spoonfuls of greek yogurt, maybe 1/2–1 cup?
two big spoonfuls of peanut butter, maybe 2 tablespoons–1/4 cup?
enough water to cover the banana

Break up a container of frozen banana into the blender cup, then add the greek yogurt, then the peanut butter, and then water. Screw on the cap, stick the cup on the motor base, and blend for 30 seconds. Then take it off the base and give it a little shake to get anything that's stuck on the top of the cup. Blend for another 20 seconds or until the smoothie is churning freely from top to bottom.
