Peanut Butter Smoothie

I'm Erin Allmann. I love family, friends and food. A lot. I live in a teeny, tiny apartment in a place called Paradise with a wonderful boyfriend named Brett who cooks much better than I do. We both happen to be fantastic at eating and whenever we're not doing so, (which isn't all that often), we try to stay occupied outdoors. We're also two of the biggest nerds you can ever find, so excuse the occasional o-chem, bio, Harry Potter, or Star Wars reference.

I’m going to go ahead and assume you all know what Jamba Juice is. Is that a safe assumption? No? Well, it’s a smoothie joint. My little brother happens to work there, actually. Anyway, they make smoothies. Dang good ones, if I do say so myself. But honestly, five bucks for some berries in a blender? No thanks. I’d rather make it myself. And I’m not gonna lie to you guys, I make really good smoothies. But they have this one smoothie there that is ridiculous. It shouldn’t be called a smoothie, it should be called a shake, really. It’s ri-donk-ulous. It’s called the Peanut Butter Moo’d. They have it in chocolate, too. But I’m still not willing to fork out the dough for it. Not to mention it’s like  five zillion calories. Seriously. Not that I even care. But. Still.

Enter: Bullet. Also: frozen bananas. I’ve already told you guys how these suckers can make freakin ice cream, yo, and now I’m here to tell you they are clearly the secret to a creamy peanut butter shake. Which you are more than welcome to add chocolate to. I added nutella. Because, why wouldn’t you?

Peanut Butter Smoothie

(inspired by the Moo’d. Created by yours truly.)

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen banana, 1 non-frozen banana cut into chunks. (Here we have these little mini bananas called apple bananas. They’re the best things ever. But if you don’t have those, and are using regular ol’ cavendash which are ginormous, you could just use half one of each frozen and non frozen)
  • 2 tbsp creamy peanut butter (ps this is one serving size. score for portion control!)
  • a few glugs of milk
  • Nutella, like, however much you want.
  • I also threw in a couple chunks of frozen papaya because a) they were severely freezer burned and needed to go and b) I thought they’d add a bit of sweet that would be nice. you could throw in whatever frozen fruit you have on hand: peaches, mango, whatevs. Maybe not berries because they are a) tart and b) red which means you’d have a nasty color smoothie. Just sayin’.

Instructions

  1. Blend.
  2. Drink.
  3. Smile. 

    And you can bring it to work. And it will make you smile.
