Recipe:: Peanut Butter Shake


, , , ,


Today I scored BIG. I headed to our local Amish bulk goods store with both kids in tow. I was harried by the time I got there but I was determined to stock up on dark chocolate chips and get out of there as quick as possible. I had one kid in each arm and could have dropped them both when I saw the price for a box of bananas.

$4.00 for a LARGE box of bananas

$4.00 for approximately 100 bananas. I call that a GOOD deal!

So, 200 bananas made their way home with me and I am on a dehydrating and freezing spree. (I should have taken pictures of it all this afternoon but my hands were covered…in bananas)

We use frozen bananas in many of our dairy-free desserts. Most frequently our homemade shakes. Here is one of our favorites:

Peanut Butter Shake (1 serving)

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup milk or milk substitute (I use almond milk)
  • 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 Tbs honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6 ice cubes
  • Optional add-ins: flax seed, oatmeal, coconut oil

*For a chocolate peanut butter version, simply add in 1 Tbs of cocoa powder.

Place all ingredients in blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into glass and serve immediately or place in freezer for 30 minutes for a thicker consistency.
