Banana PB&J Smoothie

I got (and tweaked) this delicious recipe from the April 2011 edition of Food Network Magazine. They featured 50 smoothies, and being a "smoothie girl" myself, I love trying different flavors. I have to say, this was one of the most delicious I have ever had. It was just so rich and filling. And I didn't feel guilty because it had banana and peanut butter. I thought of it as "drinkable breakfast."

By the way, you did not read the date wrong. The recipe was really from a 2011 edition. I have been a subscriber since 2010 (best gift that hubby ever gave me!) and I love their recipes and features. Being a subscriber, I also get my magazine before it hits the newsstands (e.g. I got my September issue on the first week of August!) so I get to make different holiday recipes ahead of time. I am hoping to get my October (Halloween!) issue in a few weeks, so I would have enough time to try out recipes and post some here in my blog.

What you need:

1 banana
1 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons strawberry jelly
6 ice cubes

What to do:

Easy peasy. Just put everything in the blender and blend until you get your desired consistency. 

Tips, Tricks and Tweaks:

1. Original recipe called for a frozen banana, soy milk and wheat germ. I just omitted and substituted.
2. Try raspberry or grape jelly for this recipe!
3. If you want your smoothie to be a bit thin (like I do!), add more ice.
