Since we aren't going to the traditional barbeque until Saturday, I thought I'd share a smoothie that I made this week. The food blogging world can be quite an inspiration and after my last smoothie it seemed like I kept finding more ideas all over the place. Since I had a really ripe banana on hand I knew that it would have to go into our smoothie. Next, I was trying to decide what else to put in the blender to go with it to make it even more delicious and suddenly peanut butter came to mind. After I had blended it, I took a quick taste and decided that just a touch of chocolate syrup would bring it all together... and it really did! My Oldest and I were trying to come up with a better name than Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie... one thought was Peanut Butter and Banana Delight... still too long, but we'll work on it!
Go on out and enjoy the long holiday weekend, but be sure to check back as I'll be sharing the side dish(es) that I'm taking for our neighbor's barbeque this weekend. In the meantime, try a smoothie!
