It’s a well known fact that one of Elvis Presley’s favorite foods was peanut butter and banana sandwiches. He inspired this natural, healthy treat (my twist on a treat I had at a Relief Society meeting last week).
1 frozen banana
2 tablespoons peanut butter (I used natural—just peanuts and salt)
2 cups dark chocolate almond milk
A handful of ice (optional)
Blend all together in a blender until smooth. Pour into two tall glasses. Sip and enjoy. Makes two large, protein packed, healthful and satisfying milkshakes.
A couple of hints:
- I just peeled a bunch of browning bananas and froze them in ziploc bags. Peel them first and then you have some on hand whenever you need them. You can just toss the frozen banana in the blender and you don’t have to wait until it thaws to peel it. It also makes everything nice and cold. I didn’t think the ice was necessary doing it this way.
- You could use chocolate soy milk or even regular chocolate milk instead of the almond milk.
