Alright, here it is!!!

For all of you that are obsessed with my PBNanner protein smoothies I am giving out my secret recipe.

I am a smoothie fanatic and usually have at least 1 smoothie a day.  This sweet concoction has been my newest addiction for the past couple months.  It takes exactly like graham crackers and honey!!  I love to have this as a mid-afternoon treat { usually after my workout } or it’s a perfect after dinner dessert.  I have a huge sweet tooth and this helps keep it in control in a healthy way.  This is the perfect pre-wedding smoothie to kick start your healthy eating.

Here is everything that you will need photo 1-4

Total calories : 394
{ feel free to take out the protein powder or substitute the almond milk for coconut milk or water.  Make it your own! }

smoothie 2Throw everything into a blender and start to mix.  I usually blend all ingredients first, then I add the ice and blend in two parts.  { my blender is nothing special, basic KitchenAid does the job } You should get a creamy liquid { see photo }.  I use crunchy almond butter so mine has some texture.

Add a fun cup and straw to make your smoothie that much more amazing!  I love the to-go cups from Target that come in different patterns.  Big plastic straws are a must for my smoothies.  Mine changes color when you drink.
