The best smoothie

Every day, for the last few years, I’ve made a smoothie to replace breakfast. Here’s the recipe for others who may be interested. It was shared with me by a local coffee shop, and I’ve tweaked the ingredients a bit based on what I like.

Recipe for 2 people

  • 3 bananas
  • 3 cups of milk
  • 8 ice cubes
  • 2 cups of frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened peanut butter
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 2 scoops of chocolate pea based protein powder
  • 3 dates for sweetener (optional)

A few notes:

  • I blend all this in our Vitamix, and my split between my son and myself. It’s a very generous serving and replaces a meal for me.
  • If you’re just making this for one person, cut all the ingredients in half.
  • If you have a less powerful blender blend up everything else first (minus the ice and blueberries), and slowly add those in with the blender running on medium-high.
