Cherry Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Cherry Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
After making peanut butter the other day, my boys wanted a smoothie with their lunch. I tossed some of the peanut butter in along with the other ingredients. The peanut butter made a bigger difference than I expected. It was richer and thicker than our usual smoothies. With additional frozen fruits, this would easily convert to an "ice cream" smoothie.

2 cups milk
1 frozen banana
1 cup frozen cherries
2-3 big tablespoons of peanut butter, I used homemade, but store-bought is fine

Layer all ingredients into the blender in the order listed. Puree until smooth. Enjoy!

  1. I don't use peanut butter but I do make my own almond butter. I bet that would taste good in the too.

  3. I wish I had thought to follow your instructions for making my own peanut butter, I just made peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and that would have made them over the top. The color of your smoothie is great!

  4. Peanut butter in a smoothie? You might just be a genius! :)

    PS you commented about eggplant in a stew - I think the great thing about it is that it really soaks up flavours, so it takes on the taste of whatever seasonings you use. But of course plenty of other things do that, too ;)
