Boosting Smoothie & The Aggrolites

banana and peanut butter smoothieI LOOOOOVE this smoothie and its been a favourite of mine for a long time now.

Before having babies (and after) I used to make this smoothie to give me a boost after a good workout, I drink it often during pregnancy because it’s full of energy and goodness and it soon became a favourite if mine while breastfeeding- again for the fab energy and nutrients that it gave to me (and my baby!). The kids are now starting to request this as a yummy sweet midday snack too!

Of course Bananas are good for us. They are packed with potassium and fibre,  they work as a prebiotic, they help you sleep at night, they also give you loads of slow releasing energy, they are full of antioxidants… my list can go on and on. But at the end of the day they are a cheap family favourite that everyone loves- except for my husband. He has an absolute fear of them and refuses to go near me or the kids if either of us are eating them. Freak.

I don’t follow any actual recipe, a common theme in my kitchen! All I do is slice up 2 bananas, about half a pint of green top milk (Blue top for the kids) handful of ice, and a tablespoon of peanut butter. I could probably go less with the peanut butter, but I’m not trying to loose weight so I’m not fussed about its fat content (NOTE: This is not how I treat other foods. I just really love peanut butter).

Blend until smooth (it’s a smoothie- duh). Pour. Serve. Or just drink it straight from the blender cup if you’re as sick as me.
