Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Despite appearances this isn't eggnog.

Despite appearances this isn’t eggnog.

Running always puts me in a good frame of mind. It clears out negative thoughts and replaces it with energy. On the days that those benefits aren’t enough – I always have a post-run smoothie to look forward to.

For recovery, it’s hard to beat bananas and peanut butter. My smoothie is easy: It uses almond milk (other milks work too), banana, a touch of honey, cinnamon and lately a scoop of peanut butter.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 2
8 oz milk
6 ice cubes
1 banana
1 t peanut butter (or more if you prefer)
1 shake of cinnamon
1 t honey
1 scoop protein powder (optional)

Method: Place all ingredients in blender and blend. Stir a little to make sure peanut butter isn’t stuck to the side. Blend again for a moment. Once it’s smoothie consistency pour into a tumbler and enjoy.

Here is a link to another great variation using chickoo.
