2 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup)

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.

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!!
