Get the day started right with a peanut butter, banana, and flax smoothie. Not only will it taste like a treat but you'll get a good dose of potassium, protein, and fiber to boot. If the smoothies seem too thick, just add another tablespoon or two of milk.
1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk
1/2 cup vanilla fat-free yogurt
2 tablespoons ground golden flaxseed
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ripe banana, sliced
How to Make It
Place all ingredients in a blender; process until smooth.
I substituted the milk with almond milk, the peanut butter with almond butter, and added a tablespoon of coconut oil. I also added a little ice to make it colder. The recipe is very good as it is, but I wanted to make it a little more healthy. It turned out great, and gave me a nice boost of energy in the morning.
great light breakfast!!!! my only problem is that it's a two serving recipe and i'm usually the only one who drinks it. so i experimented....i used almond milk instead of regular milk and almond butter instead of peanut butter. i also used half a banana instead of a whole one. turned out delicious and cut the calories to around 300, so i can have both servings.
i love this smoothie. I actually add flax seed oil instead of seeds because of the texture. the peanut butter actually has it too. I make my own and it goes great with this smoothie.
An excellent way to use flax!! Extremely delicious, with rave reviews from family members who usually loathe flax. I used chunky PB with no problem. It's helpful to chill the mixture prior to serving. Next time, I'm going to try to put it in the ice cream maker!!
