Almond Peanut Butter Banana Latte Smoothie

green goddess smoothieWhere did fall come from? Wasn’t it just summer like yesterday? Brrrrrrrrr

Let me ask you this, do you drink smoothies all year round? For those of you who do, I am dying to know how you manage to drink them when it’s cold outside. I have tried a warm protein drink, putting it in my oatmeal, using it as a glaze on donuts and I believe their was a time I tried making pancakes with it. #fail I have tried not using frozen fruits and spinach, but (to me) it’s still like a frozen summer treat. I need to find a way around this because I looooooove my smoothies. While I still drink them, I just find it harder in the cooler months. I think it’s time to experiment with some warmer recipes. hmmmmmm wonder how warm milk would work out…..latte! 

I’ve been pounding away at the keyboard trying to find time to finish my next protein book. I have the cover all done and let me tell you, it’s s step up from the last protein powder recipe book.

For those who are new here, hey ! I wrote a protein powder recipe book!  Shout out to hubs to made the cover. At the time, it was exactly what I wanted. Here we are some time later and I feel like it needs a cover and maybe a title change. Not sure.

30+proteinpowder1Anywho, that’s not why we are here today. I’m here to share my super-duper fabulous Banana Peanut Butter Banana smoothie. And let me tell you, it was super yum. I didn’t snap a picture but when I sipped off the top and topped it off with what was left in the blender, I added a drizzle of honey. Best thing ever. If you are a fan of peanut butter with slices of banana and a drizzle of honey, this is the perfect smoothie for you.

You’ll notice the package of Le-vel in the photo. I had tried the protein powder for a month. To date, it’s my favorite tasting protein powder. It has a really nice creamy taste. It works well with adding cocoa powder to make something chocolate, or just a fruit flavor. I did try some other Le-vel products and those didn’t work out to well for me. Lately I just find myself using Designer Whey in Vanilla. It’s easy to find and affordable.

    Yes, I drink them all year round. The weather outside had no bearing on what I drink inside 😉

  2. I’m like you, I have a hard time drinking cold things in cold weather. It hurts my teeth. I did buy your book a while ago and I’ve tried some of the recipes, I agree, the protein pancakes was a bit much for me.

  3. I have been having a smoothie every day for a snack. This sounds really good minus the banana since I am allergic.

    1. I make those as well. I have one that’s like an everything-but-the-kitchen sink. I have another that is like a garbage can. It’s where I add all the goodies that are close to going bad. YUM!

  4. I love finding creative ways to use the protein powders. Let’s face it – the do not always taste good and you need something to help get them down.

  5. I love smoothies all year round, though I do tend to move away from tropical fruity ones when the weather gets colder. This one sounds really tasty!

    1. I am the same way. I tend to not add frozen fruits, which I use to thicken it up. I do enjoy more the PB / Chocolate / Banana varieties in the winter.

  6. My two grown boys like protein shakes. I’ll send this over in an e-mail. I like the title of the book and the cover, but good luck whatever you decide about it.

  7. My smoothies are vegetable and fruits. I never put milk or anything other than fruits and veggies. My favorite that I literally drink everyday is mango, banana, pineapple and kale

    Ohh I would never have thought about using peanut butter in a latte but my even the idea is mouthwatering. x

  9. We make smoothies all year around. I love them for breakfast. I will try your recipe. I like trying new things.

  10. I haven’t really gotten into the smoothie thing and I keep seeing recipes and wanting to try them. I love Peanut Butter and bananas, so this might be a good one for me to start with.

    I drink smoothies all year round regardless of the weather. I’m not a huge breakfast eater so smoothies help me start my day off right without having to “eat” anything

    This might kill me that I just used the rest of my almond milk this morning so I won’t be able to make this first thing tomorrow. Or it just might be the earliest I’ve ever made it to the grocery store, LOL.

  13. I could have smoothies all year around. However I agree with that it is difficult to have during colder months. Sometimes if I am really desperate, I would warm it for few seconds in the microwave.

  14. Congrats on the book! Protein powders leave a little bit to be desired on their own but in a smoothie, it’s nice. Pinning. Nice combination of ingredients! Thank you for sharing with us at Home Matters Linky.

  15. Hi Chrystal, Just wanted to let you know that your yummy recipe is Featured this week at the Home Matters Linky! Would love for you to grab a Featured button for your Party page 🙂
