Peanut Butter Banana Smoothies are one of my favorite breakfasts ever. My kids like them too, but not as much as I do. The rolled oats give body and flavor to the smoothie. You can use ground flax seed instead if you like. If you want a fast, easy to digest breakfast, that keeps you full for a long time, this is the one for you.
Peanut Butter Banana Smoothy
1 cup soymilk, or other milk as desired
1 large, ripe banana, peeled
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons rolled oats
1 tablespoon black strap or regular molasses
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender. Cover and process for about a minute, or until everything is quite smooth. If desired you may add a couple of ice cubes while processing. Pour into a tall glass and serve. This shake provides about 1/3 of the iron and 1/2 of the calcium you need for the day.
Makes 1 serving.
