BM # 72; Week 4, Day 1
Theme : So many smoothies, so little time
Dish: Banana pb smoothie bowl
While me and my son like smoothies in a bowl, my husband likes it direct from a glass.The man likes it fuss free, but I love to fuss over it and ‘dress it up’. Anytime I am serving him smoothies, I pour it straight out of a blender to a cup or glass. Its easier for him to keep sipping while working or taking a call.
One of our most repeated smoothies is the basic peanut butter banana smoothie. I almost always add some source of chocolate as well, some cocoa powder, hot cocoa packet or nutella. But today I didn’t…today I took it back to the basics.
Smoothies are filling by themselves but after about an hour or so, my stomach starts crying for food again. That hunger pang stopped when I started adding some peanut butter also to it. A tablespoon or two can go a long way to keeping the hunger in check till lunch. The calories maybe higher, but hey..it stops you from reaching out for that packet of cookies.
So here is a simple smoothie which can be modified in so many ways to fit your mood and your pantry contents.
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- honey as needed
- 1 banana, peeled and chopped
- 2/3 cup milk
- Blend everything together. Pour into a glass or bowl. Use toppings of your choice. I added some granola, banana slices and strawberry.

That is a filling bowl of smoothie and a healthy start to the day. When I make sweet oatmeal for breakfast, I always throw in some chocolate, usually choco chips :)
