Ben's Famous Banana & Peanut Butter Smoothie

A morning ritual at our house is the making of the smoothies. Ben drinks a smoothie every morning before school. His favorite flavor is a derivative from a favorite dish he has eaten since he was one year old - peanut butter and banana blended together. It is full of calcium, protein and calories and a whole lot better than other breakfast alternatives promoted to kids.

Unfortunately for Ben, Sean has taken to drinking this drink also. Ben does not seem to mind sharing because Sean brings him his drink and watches Bob the Builder with him.

Ingredients:
2 bananas
2 large tablespoons of yogurt (I use whole milk vanilla )
2 large tablespoons of peanut butter (usually creamy)
2 cups of whole milk (this is a guess)

Directions:
Blend all above items in blender and serve immediately in 2-4 cups depending on size of cups.

You can sneak in flax seed or other healthy additions to the smoothie.
