The Healthy, Caffeinated Smoothie

ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION! I have seriously just discoverd the most amazing smoothie on the planet. Or…discovered someone who already discovered it. I’m getting really good at finding people who have found/created amazing things. Back to the smoothie. The Elvis Buzz, as I like to call it. It’s essentially a Peanut butter Banana Frapaccino. (Get ON THAT Sbucks!) If your tastebuds are anythning like mine, then they are in love with the whole banana/peanut butter combo. Bet you didn’t know that coffee is dying to have a threesome with those two. I mean yeah I have coffee every morning, yeah I love me some peanut butter butter bananas. But to combine these things into the perfect drinkable breakfast? Who would have thunk it? Well, Woman’s Health Magazine did. And yes, I might have had one of these guys for breakfast AND a late night snack yesterday… Here it is. You’re welcome!

I used nonfat vanilla soy milk and it worked out beautifully!

1 very ripe banana
½ cup strong coffee
½ cup milk
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1 Tbsp agave syrup
1 cup ice

Blend and enjoy! A lot!
