During my years as a college athlete, I was incredibly attentive and somewhat obsessed with my nutritional intake. I was always searching for foods that gave me energy. One of the most filling and energizing post-workout snacks for me was a banana eaten with peanut butter. Inevitably, I would always end up washing this down with a glass of milk. If I had known about this smoothie back then, I probably could have enjoyed that snack a lot more.
While I'm not nearly as active as I used to be, I still strive to eat energizing meals. This smoothie is one of those meals. I recommend drinking it for breakfast. The peanut butter and milk provides a nice protein boost. One warning though: it might feel like you're eating dessert for breakfast, but don't worry, this is good for you!
