Recipe: Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie aka “Sticky Monkey”

In an earlier blog post, I had complained about my unbearable cravings for something sweet or holiday-esque to start my morning routine. I have yet to try “Dandy Blend” (a dandelion-baed coffee substitute), but that will be next on my list.

In the meantime, however, I wanted to share with you a drink that I have discovered that I absolutely LOVE. It’s frothy, fabulous, healthy, packed with protein, and so so tasty. Give it a spin (literally!) and let me know what you think.

Sticky Monkey Protein Smoothie

What you’ll need:

  • 1 ripened banana
  • 1/4 cup of greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup organic 2% milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 4-5 ice cubes for yummy froth

Blend & enjoy!! Tip: Up the ante with additional holiday happiness with by adding more cinnamon to taste. 😉
