My kids eat lunch around 10:40 in the morning so by the time the last bell of the school day rings they are both beyond hungry and trust me, that’s never a pretty site.

So I came up with a crazy simple, super fast smoothie based on what I had in my kitchen. My kids loved it so much that I’ve been making it for them every day after school.

I like to have this smoothie ready to go in Cam’s thermos so that she can drink it as we walk back to the car from school and on the drive home.

My son is usually walking in the door as I’m heading out to pick up his sister so I just leave his smoothie on the kitchen counter along with his afternoon snack.

The kids get calcium, vitamins A, B, C, and E, potassium, and a little protein all in one drink but all they taste is peanut butter and chocolate.

Motherhood win. 😉

Chocolate Peanut Butter & Banana Smoothie

2 cups chocolate almond milk (I use Silk)

1 ripe banana (under-ripe bananas contribute an unpleasant flavor)

1 tbsp natural peanut butter

1 handful of ice

Put everything into a blender and give it a whirl for 2-3 minutes until everything is well blended and perfectly smooth.

Serve immediately

Makes two smoothies.

* For a creamier smoothie, use frozen banana chunks.
