Banana

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

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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.

  1. Dear Miss Maggie,
    So glad I came across your website. Just wanted you to know that I’ve been enjoying this breakfast smoothy for a few weeks now, several times per week. I use a little less banana, and some crushed iced. I use organic almond milk. Yum. (I started avoiding soy because it’s almost all GM now) I find I don’t need to add any sweetening to it! To me it’s just right without the molasses. Everybody should try it. My kids like it too!

  2. Hi Ana, so happy you’re enjoying it. Almond milk is delicious isn’t it? My kids like this one too.:)
