When we decide to follow a certain diet or focus on eating healthy, one of the main issues we face is the intermediate snacking. I always feel that I crave more for those short eats when I try to be more conscious of eating healthy.
This recipe of a peanut butter banana smoothie is great to have in between the day to keep yourself going till the next meal. It also makes an awesome breakfast. I use my homemade peanut butter for this recipe, which makes sure that there are no unnecessary additives. I also skip the sweetener in this recipe to make it a better choice. I also like slicing and freezing bananas once they ripen if nobody is interested in eating them at home. That ways, whenever I have to make this smoothie, I can just use the frozen bananas directly.
