Banana, Strawberries And Peanut Butter Smoothie...

I love making smoothies. I also have 4 children who love drinking them too. Everyday here is a smoothie day since getting my new smoothie maker for Mother's day.

This smoothie is mine and my daughters favourite so far. My youngest son is not a fan of peanut butter so I make his minus this ingredient and sometime with a bit of Nutella in place of the butter, now he likes that!

As for us we love it, I would drink almost any smoothie with peanut butter in!?! I have read that runners should have a little peanut butter a day so a great addition to my after run smoothie.

You will need:
  • 1 large banana
  • 2 Extra large or 100g of Strawberries
  • 100ml Skimmed milk
  • 1 Tablespoon of peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons of Greek style natural yogurt

  1. Peel and chop the banana, place in the blender.
  2. Wash, hull, chop the strawberries and add them to the blender.
  3. Spoon the peanut butter and yogurt in.
  4. Add the milk.
  5. blitz for around a minute until all mixed up and smooth.

Blueberries,Banana And Granola Breakfast Smoothie : Janathon day 6...

Today is long run day, having to do 12 miles on my own was itself a challenge. I nearly didn't do it, none of my friends were running today, so I was going to do 6 miles this morning and 6 later. Hmm like with a dinner to cook and find time before getting the 2 youngest children bathed and to bed early for the first day back to school tomorrow, no I knew that plan wouldn't work!! I left the house whilst it was still dark and very quiet and off I plodded without a plan. Seen the sunrise it was so bright and one point though I need my sunglasses and then the fog fall again. It felt like hours!! it was hours, 2hour 20 minutes ... My legs never warmed up but then again they didn't hit a brick wall either,was slow but I did it :)

Very pleased with today's run, all done dusted no more miles to run today. For breakfast I had some pancakes and a homemade blueberry smoothie. I also have a kitkat smoothie planned for later, having earned approximately 1300 extra calories on today's run, think I will make that one after lunch!!
