Sometimes, you need to dig out the blender.
Adapted from Joy the Baker
Serves 2 unless you’re really really hungry
2 cups cold unsweetened Silk
1 frozen banana, cut in chunks
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
2 teaspoons old fashioned oats
Add all of the above into a blender and blend until smooth. Cinnamon lovers, add some cinnamon.
This milkshake was so delicious — enjoyed immediately or the next morning (it thickens up overnight in the fridge!) The recipe originally calls for pre-grinding the oats, but they grind up just fine in the blender as is. Also, originally, honey is added, but I skipped it because bananas are already so sweet.
This is super filling and great for a post-workout meal/snack. It’s nutritionally dense with tons of protein, healthy fats, potassium for healing sore muscles and fiber for… a sound body.
I don’t normally make smoothies or milkshakes but this one is a winner.
