If you need some quick, easy, and delicious nutrition, Smoothies are my #1 recommendation. I love the extra hydration and calorie boost that is so convenient with smoothies. Just one healthy Smoothie can really pack a punch! Smoothies are great for growing kids, athletes, during pregnancy and if you are looking to easily add in some extra HEALTHY calories. Check out our Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothies Recipe below for a new mix that we’re now slurping up.
Plus, kids think drinking Smoothies is a total TREAT. If you’ve never made a smoothie before and aren’t sure where to start, check out Walmart’s Smoothie recipe center here. Seasoned smoother makers will love the inspiration for some new spins on their classic creations beyond just frozen strawberries, yogurt and OJ.
Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothies Recipe
I love that this recipe includes very basic items I always have in stock at home. If not, you can pick up some yummy Peter Pan Creamy peanut butter, vanilla yogurt and bananas at your local Walmart.
- 2 Medium ripe bananas
- 11/2 cups ice cubes
- 1 container (6 oz.) low-fat vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 cup Peter Pan creamy peanut butter
Place all ingredients in blender container; blend until smooth.
Tip: If you want to make a single serve smoothie, we love using an immersion blender and just split the ingredients in half so you can create a smaller smoothie and we find the immersion blender is SO easy to clean and rinse in the sink or dishwasher.
Bananas always seem to make a smoothie and the best part is the more ripe they are the sweeter they make your smoothie! And since everyone in my house REFUSES to eat the ripe spotted bananas in our house, I am able to put them fantastic use in a smoothie to prevent us from wasting them.
I think this Banana Chocolate Chia Seed Smoothie sounds amazing too if you want some variety.
We’ve relied on smoothies to help us really get the nutrition job done at various times. This past Fall, I started giving my 9 year old smoothies as a convenient way to help her maintain her weight since she is a very busy athletic kid. After having some trouble eating enough calories and dealing with the crazy after school sports schedule that interrupts the dinner hour, Smoothies are a perfect solution to help feed her something quickly before or after swim team practice.
