Can’t choose between a peanut butter and banana sandwich or apples with peanut butter? Don’t! Try this Apple Banana Smoothie with Peanut Powder instead!
Have you tried peanut powder yet?
Well, what are you waiting for?
With less calories and fat than traditional peanut butter, peanut powder can add protein and flavor to your recipes. I’ve been enjoying it in my oatmeal in the mornings and even put it on Cheerios now and then!
Then, one fine morning I was looking for some fruit to make a smoothie to take with me on the road. I found a frozen banana and was just about to make a banana berry smoothie when…
Out of the corner of my eye, I saw it. I rubbed my eyes; I took a second glance. Could it be? Is this the magic ingredient I’ve been searching for? With the back of my hand on my forehead, I gasped, “Oh, peanut powder, where have you been all my life?”
OK, maybe it wasn’t that dramatic, but we like to have a little fun around here. 🙂
So, needless to say, the berries were out, the peanut powder was in and that would have been the end of it until…
I saw that lonesome apple sitting in the fruit bowl…
I bet you can guess what happened next!
how to make this apple banana smoothie
Start by adding a frozen banana to your blender. I cut up my bananas before freezing to make the blending process easier. Then add chopped apple, coconut milk and peanut powder.
Blend until smooth. Top with ground cinnamon.
OR…you can take it up a notch by adding your favorite non-dairy whipped topping followed by ground cinnamon.
Either way, it’s delicious! 😉
