Every once in a while I like to add peanut butter to my smoothie. Although choosing a low in sugar or organic peanut butter may be a better option, it is still something we should consume in moderation. This will give you the flavor of peanut butter and sweetness and tang from the berries as well as the health benefit from oils in the peanut butter, vitamins and calcium in the fruit and yogurt and milk as well as health benefits of the flax or wheat germ.

How to Make Banana, Berries and Peanut Butter Smoothie

Step-by-Step

  1. Put ground flax and wheat germ into blender to grind and further breakdown. This will also eliminate any bitterness from the flax.
  2. Place the banana, strawberry, blackberries, blueberries, peanut butter, honey, yogurt, and milk into the blender. Cover, and puree until smooth. Add ice two at a time and pulse to break up, then blend till desired consistency.
  3. Note:
    If you only have mixed fruit or prefer mixed, replace fruit (except banana) with 1 cup mixed berries.
