Peanut Butter Banana Chia Smoothie

No bananas were hurt in the making of this smoothie. Don’t get me wrong, I love bananas but they aren’t exactly easy on the blood sugar. Thank goodness for extracts and flavorings. This way, I can still get all the great banana flavor without the extra carbs. This peanut butter banana chia smoothie is thick and rich and a great way to start your day.

Ingredients:

1 cup Greek yogurt

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

2 tbsp peanut butter

2 tbsp chia seeds

1/2 tsp banana extract

12 drops liquid stevia extract

Preparation:

In a blender, combine yogurt, almond milk, peanut butter, chia seeds, banana extract and stevia extract. Blend until smooth.

    If you haven’t tried the wonders of PB2 yet, you might consider it!  Basically dried peanut butter – much less fat and calories, but all the taste (and protein).  I love it in smoothies! They make a version with cocoa powder added that is also tasty.

  2. I am going to make this for breakfast (minus the banana extract because I don’t have it, but WILL get some)!  Wondering on the PB2, I have it but have never used it because don’t know what to do with it.   It does contain sugar and my PB of choice does not, I wonder how much PB2 I would add and what that little bit of sugar will do… I am not diabetic but have gone on a weight loss plan which is pretty much sugar free (except for the occasional cheat, which is not often).  This looks really good!  I just found this blog and am loving it!

    For those of you wondering about PB2, a better sugar-free alternative for you may be defatted peanut flour.  You can get it on amazon and lots of online nutrition websites.  Same idea as PB2 but without sugar.  I frequently use it in smoothies and muffins, etc. to give that peanut butter flavor with hardly any fat and no sugar.
