I don’t know about you, but I LOVED Tropical Smoothie when I lived in Vegas. I think I used to get one every week. I would always get the peanut paradise because who doesn’t love peanut butter and bananas together? So one day I actually decided to look through the nutritional info they have at the counter. I could not believe it! It had 800 calories! So, I decided to make my own version. Mine only contains 315 calories and is super easy to make.
Healthy Tropical Smoothie Peanut Paradise
1 frozen banana
2 T fresh ground peanut butter ( I use Sprouts Organic)
2/3 cup non dairy milk ( I use homemade almond milk, but soy would work fine too.)
If you wanted to make it even more healthy, you could add 1 T flax meal for another 37 calories
Blend everything in a magic bullet until you get the consistency you desire. I like mine thick so I can eat it with a spoon. Sometimes, if I feel like getting crazy, I will through in some chocolate chips. 🙂
I feed this to my daughter for breakfast sometimes and add the flax. She has no idea she is eating something healthy!
