Peanut Butter Banana Milkshake

I do love the weekends…

I love weekend morning trips to West Seattle, especially when they contain Twice Baked Chocolate Croissants and foamy lattes from Bakery Nouveau.

It also doesn’t hurt if the weekend morning contains fresh morning air off the water and the promise of February sunlight.

The best kind of Saturday nights include getting dressed up, good friends, and late night honey lavender ice cream at Molly Moon’s…yum.

However, we can’t have the weekend all the time! The weekday always returns armed with alarm clocks, rush hour, and demands for productivity! We probably shouldn’t eat ice cream and pastries all the time either…

So, for Tuesdays and Wednesdays and all the other days that are not restdays, here is a milkshake. Specifically, a Peanut Butter Banana Milkshake.

This milkshake is sweet and foamy and fulfilling, but also healthy. In fact you could probably have this for breakfast or lunch and feel pretty good about yourself! The two secrets to success are frozen bananas and sweetened almond milk.

Here’s to normal days that make the special ones memorable!

    We just discovered almond milk last week. It is amazing. The vanilla flavored by itself tastes almost like a milkshake (not quite), and it has fewer calories than 1% milk. This shake recipe looks really good.

    My kids love smoothies and we make them almost everyday. I’ve never thought about adding peanut butter though! Duh! Thanks for the idea!

    I’ve been drinking a variation of this a lot recently! It really does taste like a shake, too. I sometimes like to add a scoop of cocoa powder- got to love the peanut butter chocolate combination!
