It is pretty hard to find protein in liquid form if you can’t eat dairy. When I recently had oral surgery, I survived the first day on guacamole, soy yogurt, and applesauce. I wanted to eat peanut butter but all I had on hand was chunky peanut butter. A quick google search inspired this recipe. The first time I made it, it was wonderful and I couldn’t wait to make it again. The second time I made it, I added too much ice, so it was a little watery. I plan to make it again soon and put even less ice in it!
1/4 c. crunchy peanut butter (Skippy Natural)
3/4 c. crushed ice or 1 c. ice cubes
1 c. non-dairy milk (cashew milk was very nice)
1 banana, broken into 4 chunks
1 tsp to 1 T. honey
Place all ingredients in the blender, starting with the milk. Blend until smooth and all ice chunks are gone. Pour into a glass and serve! This made about 1.5 glasses of smoothie.
