Banana Peanut-Butter Shake

Banana Peanut-Butter Shake.  Ok, full disclosure here. I have been craving banana and peanut butter for weeks now.  Seriously. Full-on craving. Which is unusual for me, as I don’t really do peanut-butter, always sub Almond butter for it.  Not this time. Have been fighting every urge, as I am temporarily off sugar -which includes fruit (fructose), and if you are going for fruit, a banana is pretty high-up on the glycemic index! However, when I came home to the new VegNews in my mailbox last week, was delighted to see Kathy Patalsky’s Pumpkin Spice Cake on the cover.  On her site, she posted this dessert shake, which just happens to be a mouth-watering Banana Peanut Butter Shake

Ok, that’s it!!! I decided to go for it. Live and let live.  Grabbed my bag of frozen bananas and pulled out the peanut butter, threw two bananas in the vitamix and started blending. OMG.  When I tasted that heavenly-gift-from-god-shake, it was pure bliss.  If there is a smoothie heaven, trust me – this is what they are serving as their welcome elixir.

 I proceeded to make two more after that … (Hey–they were small, k?)

As I sit here typing this…my body is so grateful. I am so happy I went for it and look forward to enjoying this simple, delicious treat many more times 🙂  Kathy (and God):  I’ve got nothing but love for ya.  xo

  1. One of my favorites right now!! I have been making a similar version of your Banana Peanut Butter smoothie. For a change I have been substituting with almond butter and adding blueberries or strawberries. Flavors of a PB&J. xoxo,Susan
