Peanut butter and bananas are good post-workout snacks. Put them together in a blender with some skim milk, ground flax seeds and ice and you have a creamy drink loaded with potassium, protein, Omega 3 fatty acids and calcium.
This smoothie is also a quick on-the-go breakfast drink for kids of any age.
1 ripe banana
2 tablespoons of peanut butter
½ cup of skim milk
1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds
½ cup ice (add more if needed)
Put all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. Add more ice if needed.
I added another half cup of ice to make it cold and hydrating. You could add additional peanut butter or protein powder as well.

We make a lot of smoothies, but this may very well be our favorite. The texture was perfect. It was smooth, creamy and filling. The peanut butter gives it a rich flavor that you don’t find with fruit smoothies. You can add strawberries or other fruit for a variety of flavors.
