Vegan Peanut Butter + Banana Smoothie

 Growing up I used to watch The Baby-Sitters Club movie all the time, and I remember Kristy eating a peanut butter and banana sandwich with her dad in one scene. So, as any 5 year old would do, I insisted my grandma make one for me so I could be just like her. I swear it was like magic, that sandwich was all I wanted to eat after trying it. So, today I am sharing a delicious smoothie recipe that tastes just like the sandwich, and is packed with protein to curb that midday snacking!

Vegan Peanut Butter + Banana Smoothie
                                                    yield: 2 servings

1 banana, chopped
2 Tbs. peanut butter (I used crunchy)
1/3 cup vanilla hemp protein
1 1/2 cup non-dairy beverage (I used almond milk)
1 Tbs. vanilla extract
2/3 cup ice

1. In blender, place ingredients. Cover; blend on high speed for about 1 minute or until smooth.
2. pour into 2 glasses and serve immediately.

(for a well-blended smoothie stop blender half way through and uncover; scrape the sides of the container down to mix the peanut butter completely.)

This smoothie is what the hubby and I had for breakfast, this morning, and the amount of protein really did help hold me over until lunch time! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did :)
