Swingin’ Summer Saturday’s & Sunday’s – “Shake, Shake, Shake Your Smoothie” (Part 1)

It is time to shake up your weekend.  We will start  with “Nutty Banana Shake” courtesy of Marsha Overholser (Ash Grove, MO). 


2-3 Banana’s, peeled and frozen

1 C. Milk

2 T. Peanut Butter

1 T. Honey


Slice frozen banana’s and place in a blender with remaining ingredients.  Blend until smooth and thick.  Serves one.

I sliced 2 banana’s before freezing them.

Below is a picture of my shake.  Perfect for a hot summer day or evening out on the deck.

Nutty Banana Shake

But Wait!  There’s More! 

I decided to turn this into a peanut butter cup shake.  Just squirt as much syrup as you like and blend until well mixed.  The result is:

Michele’s Preference

Both were delicious but I preferred……the original version.  It just seemed more refreshing.  The chocolate added a bit of a heaviness to the flavor.

Now that you had a shake, go “Shake, Shake, Shake Your Booty.”  (I dare you to click the link and watch the video, “Don’t fight the feelin’, give yourself a chance.)             😉
