Toddler Friendly Banana Protein Shake

Banana SmoothieLast 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.
