Super Smoothie

Since I had to get jaw surgery, I was browsing Pinterest for a bunch of cool/good smoothie, protein shakes, and juices, that I could drink post-op. I came across the "Super Smoothie" and just tried it, let me tell you -IT IS DELICIOUS! If you want a good, healthy smoothie definitely give this one a try.

Here's how::

You can make this smoothie a few different ways, but the 'base' is the same for each one.

The Base: 3 cups of milk or yogurt (I used milk)
2 bananas
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup honey (I only added about a 1/4 cup, or so)

very simple!

You can also add in extra ingredients for more flavor. I added in peanut butter.

Extras: 1 cup peanut butter
1/2 can frozen orange juice
1 cup strawberries
a little touch of lemon juice

Like I said, I added a big heaping spoonful of peanut butter, and it is sooo good. I also added ice into my glass afterwards, it doesn't call for ice but I wanted it a little colder than it was. My dad then added ice into the blender to mix his ice in and it was just as good. Whatever you like! 

If you had some protein powder I'm sure you could also add a scoop or two of that and it would still be scrumptious -and healthier too.  I didn't think about it until later, so I didn't add any in, but next time I'm definitely trying it that way.

life is good
