Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie

Well today marks a milestone for me...I had my first cavity filled! Ugh, and boy was I dreading it. I really didn't know what to expect, I had a gum surgery back in high school and it was so unpleasant and painful I kept comparing everything to that. But to my surprise, it really wasn't that bad! My dentist has a flat screen TV on a swivel so I was able to position it in front of my and pull up a movie on Netflix and just watch that the whole time! I took an Aleve earlier when I started to feel a little pain, so I'm feeling fine now. Hopefully it won't interfere with dinner tonight!

For some reason, I keep get Fitness magazine mailed to me. Its addressed to me, so I know I'm not getting anyone else's by mistake. A few months ago there was a section about smoothies and I saw a smoothie that sounded delicious...Almond Banana! Of course, when I want to make it I can't find the magazine so I Googled around and found one posted on Bon Appetit. I made it a few days ago and...blech! I didn't like it at all. There was very little flavor and just tasted like watered down bananas to me. Since I had a few bananas left I wanted to try something else so I could have something nutritious after my cavity filling today ad I came up with my Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie. This was so good!! It was the perfect blend of banana and peanut butter flavor.



Ingredients
-3 ripe bananas, diced
-4 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
-2 cups Almond milk
-1 cup ice

1. Place diced bananas, almond milk, and peanut butter in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add the ice and blend until smooth (about 30 seconds).
