Peanut Butter Split Smoothie
Peanut Butter Split Smoothie recipe:
Peanut butter fanatics, this drink is for you.
The best smoothies are nutrient-dense, providing vitamins and oils necessary for good nutrition. Fat is required for biological functions and burned by your body for energy; a good smoothie should have some dietary fat. Simply blending a banana with ice and skim milk does not make a good smoothie; there is almost no fat for the body to use in assimilating the vitamins, and there is little nutritive content at all. A healthy smoothie contains egg yolks, coconut oil, cream or other nutrient-dense foods. Smoothies are a great, simple way to get in the extra nutrition you need.
Peanut butter has protein as well as potassium — which lowers the risk of high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease. It also contains fiber for your bowel health, healthy fats, magnesium to fortify your bones and muscles, Vitamin E and antioxidants.
Here is what you will need:
1 ripe banana; peeled, quartered, and frozen
1/2 cup nonfat milk
1/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1 1/2 Tbs creamy natural peanut butter
