Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie

Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 3 (1 cup) servings
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!

***NOTE: This recipe is best made with bananas that are ripe, they should have had lots of brown spots on them before they were frozen. Brown spots = super sweet bananas. Hence, the no-sugar-needed-policy. 

SMOOTHIE:
2 large frozen bananas
2 Tb peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
1/2 C milk

TOPPINGS: (Optional)
Chocolate Syrup
Caramel Syrup
Peanuts

1. Grab 2 large frozen bananas and toss them into your blender. 
2. Add 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. I used crunchy, because that's what I keep on hand, man. I like a little crunch. If you love smooth creamy peanut butter, please use that. 
3. Add 1/2 cup milk. (I used 1%, the important reason being...that's what kind I buy). 
4. Blend the ingredients together. You may need to turn the blender off and scrape the sides of it with a rubber spatula so that the frozen bananas can be blended up properly. A smooth, wonderful texture is what you are looking for. Keep blending until you get there. Add a touch more milk if you need to. Then just grab a glass or two and pour it in. It should be nice and thick. You can add a drizzle of caramel or chocolate syrup and toss a few peanuts on top, if you have them around and you really like a crunch. :) 

Then dig in, baby! 

You'll be glad you did...
