What to do with those ripe ripe bananas? My go to answer is banana bread. But the house is too hot to turn on the oven. So I asked my Facebook mom’s group what I should do with them. When someone suggested smoothie I did a face palm. Duh lady. Smoothie.
Since I had no yogurt (my go to smoothie ingredient) I went with a little something out of my comfort zone.
2 ripe bananas
1-3 tbs peanut butter (more, to taste)
1.5 or to taste tbs honey
1/2 cup or so milk (I had whole milk on hand and used that, because this was supposed to be Moppet’s)
I don’t usually do peanut butter, but this was just so good. I made it for my 1 year old, but ended up eating most of it. I understand that frozen bananas work even better for this, so the two over ripe bananas that I have left are waiting in the freezer.
The nice thing about smoothies is that it is all to taste. You really don’t need to measure- just use what you have. If you really love peanut butter, add more. If you are making this for an under 1, then skip the honey.
I need to get popsicle makers so I can freeze the next batch and try it as a popsicle!
