The Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie.
I know some people swear by cold cereal for breakfast…
But whenever I eat a bowl of cereal, I always seem to be hungry again less than an hour later. Does this happen to you as well?
However, I do like the convenience of cold cereal. Sure, it would be nice to eat homemade pancakes or waffles or Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls every single day for breakfast, but who has time for that? Especially on Mondays, I want something that doesn’t take all morning to prepare, can be made with just a few ingredients, and will hold me over until lunch. Enter this healthy peanut butter banana smoothie:
In 5 minutes or less, you have a balanced and filling breakfast with:
Two servings of fruit
Calcium, potassium, and fiber
And 12 grams of protein… even if you don’t add any protein powder!
This peanut butter banana smoothie is also easy to take on the go, which means you get to set your alarm clock that much later in the morning .
