A Bit of a Snack

So, we like fresh fruit in our house. Bananas, nectarines, peaches... You name it: if we can get it from our local farmers' market or, even Whole Foods, we probably like it. Bananas are the most regular fruit in our house as they are available all year. However, we never really know when we buy a bunch whether we'll get a chance to work through them before the start to get a touch "past". When the do start to get to that "a little too ripe" stage, we generally make smoothies out of them. At this point, I think we buy "too many" just to guarantee the need to make the smoothies. Any way, it's a really simple recipe:

  • Three bananas
  • Almond milk
  • Unsweetened "whole" peanutbutter (i.e., the stuff you have to mix before each use)
  • Ice

Just take the bananas out of their skin, break them up a bit, toss in  a half-vessel's worth of ice, on top, pour in a cup or two of almond milk and start to blend. Add in peanutbutter to taste.

Good for the lactose-intolerant (but not those with nut allergies, obviously). Relatively low-cal, as the only sugar is what's in the bananas and the whole peanutbutter.
