Last week, my Pumpkin Smoothie recipe was featured on the Isis Parenting Blog. Not only because it is healthy, but because it is something that even your toddler can enjoy. A lot of people loved it, so I wanted to share another smoothie recipe that has a great amount of protein and is tasty enough to appease the most distriminating toddler pallet! It is a recipe I have been making for 12 years now and now can share with my 2 year old.
Banana Protein Shake
(Makes 2 servings)
- 2 tbsp 100% pure cocoa powder (can leave out if you want)
- 2 tbsp creamy natural peanut butter (can substitute with another nut butter, like almond butter.)
- 1 medium ripe banana
- 8 oz non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt
- 4-6 ice cubes
- Dash of cinnamon (optional)
Pour the peanut butter, cocoa, Greek yogurt and ice cubes into a blender and mix at high speed. Then add the banana into the mixture and re-blend. Pour the mixture into two cups and serve. Sprinkle dash of cinnamon on top for extra flavor if you want.
