  I love making smoothies.  This chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie is the one I make most often.  Yes, it’s a mouthful to say, ha ha, but it tastes great!  Like drinking a peanut butter cup. 🙂   The think I love the most about smoothies in general is how adaptable they are.  I love that I can find a great recipe, and then adjust it to make it my own.  This chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie, for example, has […]
